Found April 03, 2013 on Tito Couture:
PLAYERS: Wanderlei Silva
Should Wanderlei have done this? It’s debatable but he probably should not have lied to a media outlet about being a replacement.  That being said it was April fools and he got everyone.  Wandy is a legend and he can get a way with a lot more than this and still be loved by all.  Shout out to Intravid for the find.

Wanderlei Silva Confirms Him Fighting Mousasi Was An April Fools Joke

Last night Wanderlei Silva told MMA Weekly that he was fighting Gegard Mousasi on Saturday and the respected news site reported that information.  Well apparently that was all an April fools joke to the Axe Murderer and he will not be facing the former Strikeforce champ.  Love Wandy but probably not the best joke to play since it could hurt the reputation of websites when they...
