Brian Stann vs. Wanderlei Silva Official for UFC 130 May 28 in Las Vegas

UFC Ultimate Insider 125 – Watch more Funny Videos

Well, it’s official. Brian Stann will look to pull the rug out from under Wanderlei Silva‘s UFC career by attempting to hand the former dangerous PRIDE champ his fourth UFC loss and preventing him from picking up his third win in the past five years when he steps into the Octagon with "The Axe Murderer" May 28 at UFC 130 in Las Vegas. The news was confirmed at the tail end of the latest episode of the UFC’s Ultimate Insider show released this morning.

It’s interesting to note that the majority of UFC middleweights on the cusp of becoming contenders  –  from Michael Bisping to Alan Belcher – ask specifically to face Wand despite the fact that he hasn’t been a contender for quite some time. It’s like he’s the guy guarding the gate to the title shot queue and they have to go through him to get there. 

Both fighters are likeable and it’s unlikely that there will be much (if any) pre-fight smack talk. This one is about the fight, and it’s pretty much a given that’s what we’re going to get on May 28. The tough part will be trying to decide who to root against.

You don't root against Wandy cause he's fucking Wandy.

The reason everybody is all uppity about wanting to fight Wandy now is that he is on the last leg of his career, and this would be the easiest time to secure a victory given his recent losses.

I didn't see tons of people calling Wandy out when he first came into the UFC. Now everybody is acting tough.

I like Stan but I love Wandy.

I hope Stann looks good in his loss though , that would be best case scenario.

People don't root against Wandy, trolls root against Wandy.

Alright Goat, I'm your Huckleberry... Why don't people "root against" Wandy?

I hope Stann comes out and tries a spinning back kick. then Wand can bitch slap him before getting knocked out. I like Wand but his days of beating post pubescent people are past.

This is a great fight! But I love both of these guys, so that makes it tough to pick. Life would be so much easier if everyone could just fight Bisping.

People don't "root against" Wanderlei.

This will be an awesome fight, right up there with Bader-Jones IMO.

Love Wandy. He's a legend, a complete badass and future UFC Hall of Famer... but I'm rooting for Brian Stann all the way on this one.

I loves me some 'Murrica, but I'll be damned if I root against Van Durr Lay.

After hearing the news, I wonder if Stann started jumping around, yelling at the other middleweights "In your face, in your face! Yeah, I got it! I got it! I'm fighting Wandy!! I'm... fighting... uh, Wandy..."

Does it make me un-American if I say I reeeealy hope Wandy KTFO's Stann?

Fuck it, I want it anyway.
