Brian Stann looks to rebound from a unanimous decision loss to Michael Bisping at UFC 152 in a fight that had title shot implications. He won his first three fights in the division, since dropping to middleweight in August of 2010. The win streak was stopped by a submission loss to Chael Sonnen, but Stann got back on the winning track with a first round knockout of Alessio Sakara at UFC on Fuel TV 2.

Wanderlei Silva returns to fight in Japan for the first time since 2007, where his exciting style and highlight reel knockouts made him a superstar for the Pride Fighting Championships. Unfortunately, a loss at UFC on Fuel TV 8 could be the end for Silva, who is just 3-7 in his last ten fights, mos recently dropping a unanimous decision to Rich Franklin at UFC 147.
