There have been some interesting theories -- and a few excuses -- why it's taken this long for Brian Stann and Wanderlei Silva to face one another.
The two middlweights who are atop this weekend's UFC on Fuel 8 card in Japan were originally penciled in for UFC 130 in May 2011. The one piece of speculation that Stann never bought was that Silva was scared.

Back in Pride when Wanderlei was in his prime there was no fighter who was more feared. Just a very well rounded fighter with pure aggression. It is great to hear him talk about some of his old fights and you can just feel the passion he has for the sport and the Japaneses fans. Let’s see if Wandy can channel some of that Japan magic he was talking about this Saturday.
