UFC 110: We gonna do this Wanderlei Silva-style


"I thought I had a great match last time, but I don’t just want to put on good performances – I want to win fights. I badly want a victory and I want a victory Wanderlei Silva-style. I have fought everybody in mixed martial arts. I am not scared to fight anybody. Michael Bisping doesn’t scare me. How can Bisping scare me? I’ve traded punches with the best fighters in the world. Nobody can make me afraid. Every day people come up to me and say ‘Bisping has been saying this and Bisping has been saying that’. I think the reason Bisping is talking a lot is because the guy is afraid. My weight has come down great, I’ve maintained my muscle and I’m going to put Bisping in real trouble."

PRIDE FC legend Wanderlei Silva (32-10-1) talks to about returning to his axe murdering roots for his upcoming middleweight scrap against Michael Bisping at UFC 110 from the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia, on Feb. 21. The Brazilian 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?
