Wanderlei Silva will not have his rest too soon. Just after Saturday’s win overt Michael Bisping, UFC president Dana White, announced his next opponent: Yoshihiro Akiyama.
“Akiyama wants to fight Wanderlei. He volunteered and said he wants Wanderlei,” White told the post-UFC 110 press conference.
Asked about who he will face next, Wand grinned and replied, “Akiyama!”
The fight between the two was originally scheduled to take place at the very Australia event. Now all they that is missing is setting a new date.
