UFC on Fuel 8 Results -
on Fuel 8: Silva vs. Stann came to us all live on March 2, 2013 from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. Simply put, there was a time when the nation of Japan was an MMA
mecca of sorts. Why? The Pride Fighting Championships. There were many great fighters that came from the organization, the only organization which really challenged the UFC for supremacy before folding. One of these fighters was longtime PRIDE Middleweight Champion (205 pounds) Wanderlei Silva
. Silva's 'leave caution to the wind' fighting style and amazing reign at the top of the heap during his days in Japan made him a fan favorite. Thus, it's no surprise that Dana White
and the gang chose him to headline a card in the country. Interestingly, he took on American hero and up and coming power puncher Brian Stann
in the main event.
