BECW5: UFC on Fuel 8 - Silva vs. Stann Live Discussion


UFC on FUEL TV 8: Wanderlei Silva vs. Brian Stann Weigh-in Highlight (via UFC)

What's up, everyone? Welcome to the sixth game of the BECW5 regular season. This makes one of only two sets of matches left before the playoffs, so it's clutch time for teams to try to find their ticket into the Grand Prix. Tonight has the potential to be an incredible or incredibly depressing event as three former Pride stars look to get a win in the octagon. There's nothing really of note on the prelims, but as far as the main card goes, it's pretty damned awesome for a free event. Dong Hyun Kim, who's only lost in his career to Maia and Condit, will look to derail the Siyar Bahadurzada hype train as the main portion begins. Two top middleweights clash as Yushin Okami and Hector Lombard face off. The Fireball Elderly Person will look to knock out TUF 1 veteran and vampire hunter Diego Sanchez. Mark Hunt and Stefan Struve will do their best to ensure their fight doesn't have to be tainted by the bad judging epidemic, since it shouldn't go past one round. And the ghost of Wanderlei Silva fights the hometown boy as he's matched against Japanese-born Brian Stann. Full card is below.
