Wand predicts 3rd round KO of Stann

by Dave Doyle |

Wanderlei Silva has a specific finish in mind for his return to Japan's Saitama Super Arena, home of some of the greatest moments of his five-year reign as Pride 205-pound champion.

At a press conference promoting Saturday's UFC on Fuel TV 8 main event against Brian Stann, Silva told the world how he envisions the fight ending: "I promise I'll knock him out in the third round," he said.

But that wasn't the only bold statement "The Axe Murderer" made. At this stage of the game, every time the 36-year-old Silva steps into the Octagon, the question of whether this will be his final MMA appearance isn't too far behind.

With his first fight at the Super Arena since 2006, the questions are even louder. So Silva made it clear he's not about to quit: "Not yet," he said.

I love Wand's confidence but it is not 2004 any more it is 2013 and and Wand is getting KTFO as soon as Stann hits him on the chin
