UFC on Fuel 8 fight card: Silva vs. Stann

A look at the current card for UFC on Fuel 8, which takes place on March 3rd in Saitama, Japan.

Japan's second UFC show in as many years is shaping up to have a very, very good card. The event, which goes down in Saitama on March 3rd (airing on the 2nd in North America) will be headlined by a bout between Pride legend Wanderlei Silva and Brian Stann. The fight will take place at light heavyweight instead of middleweight, but that shouldn't make much of a difference. It will still be a war.

The co-main event is a heavyweight style clash between the heavy-handed Mark Hunt and the 7-foot-tall Stefan Struve. Also featured is a big middleweight fight between former Bellator middleweight champion Hector Lombard and Yushin Okami. Here's a look at the current card:
