Wanderlei Silva serves up legendary UFC knockout
By Neil Springer, Toronto Sun

Meet UFC legend Wanderlei Silva!

Wanderlei (The Axe Murderer) Silva served up another legendary war in Japan, knocking out (All-American) Brian Stann in the main event of UFC on FUEL TV 8 in Saitama Saturday.

The two immediately started slugging it out in a wild brawl. Silva blasted Stann with a knee, but was soon dropped courtesy a series of uppercuts. After a brief restart, both fighters exchanged punch flurries, with Stann dropping the MMA legend to a knee. Silva then switched to a counter-striking approach, sticking to the outside and picking his shots.

Stann then exploded with strikes, dropping Silva again, but the Brazilian immediately returned the favour with a right hook. A bloody Stann fired back with heavy punches before taking the fight to the mat as time expired in the first.
