UFC Quick Quote: Wanderlei Silva looking to knock out Michael Bisping in the second round at UFC 110

"I'm doing a lot of standup because I want to knock him out. He's a man that likes to fight standup and sometimes he's a guy afraid to shoot. I've been training more boxing, Muay Thai, knees, elbows. I want to make a very interesting show for my friends. Bisping, he's got a great style. I'm going to try (for the KO) in the second. Going to try in the first, too, sure. Part of fight today is everybody is a strong guy, big guy. You wrap your hands, but it's still solid. One touch and it's done. One wrong movement and a guy catches you, it's done. I like the fight with Michael Bisping though. He's got a great style. At this moment, I don't want a fight with (Anderson Silva). He's the champion. I need to prove myself again inside the Octagon. I need to fight better. After few fights I would feel comfortable, but now, I don't want a fight with him."

Mixed Martial Arts icon Wanderlei Silva (32-10-1) talks to fans during the UFC 108 pre-fight Q&A (via Las Vegas Sun) about violently ending his upcoming middleweight scrap against Michael Bisping at UFC 110 from the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia, on Feb. 21. "The Axe Murderer" has just one win in four attempts under the Zuffa banner but fights with such intensity and reckless abandon that no fan would dare complain about his spot among the Octagon elite on the main card of a UFC pay-per-view. Would a devastating loss to "The Count" become the catalyst for a premature retirement? Or does Silva always have a home on a UFC fight card?
