Wanderlei Silva: I will KO Leben in the 1st then want Belfort

source: fightworld.com.br

Backstage at the UFC 132 open workout, Wanderlei said  the controversy with Vitor Belfort will be solved in the Octagon. The Axe Murderer, who has not fought since Feb of 2010 vs. Michael Bisping at UFC 110 in Australia, says the Leben fight is the fight of his life, and added he would knock him out in the first round. 

"I'll do 10 more fights in my career. I have over 5 years, with two fights per year. This is my goal."

Asked about the fact that Vitor Belfort said that he ran from the fight between them, said: "The day I flee from Belfort I retire. One of those ten  fights is you Belfort. rest assured that your time will come. We will settle it in there ... Rest assured I will kill him."

Based on Belfort knocking Wandy out in one round back when Silva was much closer to being in his prime than he is in 2011. Wanderlei Silva is a legit legend, no question, but one fight at a time.

based on him KOing Matt "The Corpse" Lindland and Rich Franklin in the past 3 years...DEVASTATING!Wandy has fought Jardine when he beat Chuck, Rampage, Rich, and Bisping. crushed jardine, lost to rampage (still 1 up tho ;)) lost controversially to rich, and beat bisping and nearly KOd him.Wandy has been fighting good guys this entire time and doing decently well despite his history, Vitor hasnt done much other then beat a couple aging veterans over a long span of time and be gifted a title shot.

Well Wandy is a black belt who's trained with the likes of Maia, Nog and many other impressive names in BJJ. He also nearly subbed Sakuraba (who kinda knows his way around submissions...) but let go to go for the KO.Wand CAN sub Chael. So long as he comes in planning on it cause he WILL be on his back eating love taps with Chael whispering sweet nothings into his ear all night.

I like Wand but Vitor would devastate him, again.

 I sincerely hope he does, but I don't think its going to happen that way.

Does everyone want to see this because of the little exchange in the cab video that went around awhile back or is there more?I ask because it doesn't seem like this will be a very good fight. Wand will be on his back the entire match. Maybe more intersting if they can get that ref from Pennsylvania who gives 15 seconds on the ground then stands em back up.

Wandy may get offered Chael.
