Wanderlei Silva vs. Michael Bisping Possible to Headline UFC 110 in Australia

Wanderlei Silva, who had been expected to meet Yoshihiro Akiyama in the main event of UFC 110 on February 21 in Sydney, Australia, is now likely to make his middleweight debut against Michael Bisping in the UFC 110 headliner, as Fighters Only reports that the pair have verbally agreed to the bout.

The matchup between Silva and Akiyama was first reported in October, but was put in doubt last week when UFC President Dana White revealed that the promotion was “moving things around” following a rash of injuries suffered by many of their top fighters.

Silva (32-10-1), the former PRIDE 205-pound champion, followed up a May 2008 knockout of Keith Jardine with back-to-back losses to Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rich Franklin, but heads to middleweight for a fresh start after dropping five of his last six fights.

Bisping (18-2), the winner of The Ultimate Fighter 3, dropped down to middleweight in 2008 and won three-straight before suffering a knockout loss to Dan Henderson in July. The bounced back earlier this month with a second-round TKO of Denis Kang at UFC 105 in his native Manchester, England.

UFC 110 is also rumored to include Dong Hyun Kim vs. Chris Lytle, Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic vs. Ben Rothwell, and Stephan Bonnar vs. Krzysztof Soszynski, while a middleweight matchup between Nate Marquardt and Chael Sonnen originally reported for the card has been shifted to UFC 109.

I really hope Bisping tries to stand and strike with Wandy like he did with Henderson, that would be orgasmic.

Like the Vera Couture fight where someone said Vera would knock out randy, Im waiting for someone to say Bisping is gonna knock him out. Bisping is gonna take another nap. He does not have the power to knock Wandy out but he can pick him apart if he plays it smart. I hope and pray for a silva win.

Bisping can't stand with Wand, he'll get KO'd. He's smarter then that though, think it could go the distance with Mick pulling off a decision...

Only chance for Bisping is a decision or somehow take Wand down and use his GnP. Wand will prob knock Bisping out if they stand. Should be good if Bisping keeps to his word and goes back to his old aggresive style.

I'm hoping to see the PRIDE Wand regardless of who he fights.

I guess this is a good thing since seeing Bisping get KOed is still fun unlike seeing Wandy get KOed which has gotten sad and would have happened if he fought Sexyama. I hope the sexy one gets another fight soon though.
