Wanderlei Silva went into Saturday night's fight in Japan having won just three fights out his last ten. The odds were well against him. So he executed a cautious, judicious gameplan - combining vertical pins on the cage with a smothering lay n pray.

NO HE DIDN'T HE DID A STANN N WAND N IT WAS EPIC!

Wanderlei Silva let it all go, winning in the second round. In the process, he got hit and took a knee several times in the first. In fact, he said in a post fight interview that he almost lost in that furious first.

“I don’t know what happens here in Japan, man," said Silva. "The fans just give me a lot of energy. I’m so happy to make all my fans around the world happy. That’s why I fight. I fight for you. I’m here because of you and my God, so thanks for the great support.”

“I got out of the strategy in the first round a little bit, because he’s a tough guy. He was so close to beating me. After I finished the first round, my coach told me to the right hand, and it happened.”

“He’s a tough guy; Brian Stann is a great opponent. I’m so happy to fight a guy like him and to just make a fight like that. I’m there to fight. I’m not there to run. I love to fight with guys like that. Thanks so much to Brian Stann for fighting me.”

“This was a special fight. The guys at light heavyweight are so big. I don’t know what is going to happen next.”

Have to love these old Pride warriors who stepped up to fight in the UFC, knowing they would struggle.
