Check out the latest video blog from Wanderlei Silva as he prepares for his main event fight opposite Brian Stann this Saturday in Japan. Great to see Wandy get a chance to go back and fight in Japan where he was a super star during Pride. This could be a very entertaining fight. However, Silva’s chin has been suspect as of late, most likely having to do with all of the wars he has been through in his career, and Stann has some serious power in his hands. All it takes is one clean shot from the All American and he can knockout anyone in the division. Let’s hope for the Axe Murderer’s health he can avoid that. Shout out to Intravid for the find.
