MMABay - All Your UFC/MMA News In One PlaceWe all know that Wanderlei Silva is one of the most famous and loved MMA stars of all time, and newer fans will know he came from PRIDE to the UFC. But they may not know he fought in the UFC before he fought in PRIDE against a young Vitor Belfort, and he was unsuccessful.
Speaking to Sensei Sport TV, former PRIDE champion Wanderlei Silva speaks about a rematch with Vitor Belfort, the man who beat him in 44 seconds with a dramatic succession of punches.
“That sequence of punches... I don’t know whether that was technique or anxiety. Many people told me he was dying of fear to face me so that must have been anxiety [that drove him]. Sooner or later [the rematch] is going to happen. I’m ready to face anyone, including him.”
A rematch between the two Brazilian MMA legends would be one of the most anticipated fights to be seen in a log time, wherever it may take place. It would be interesting to see how the ever aggressive Wanderlei would fair against Vitor these days.

Yeah I'm pretty sure Vitor would KO Wand, not really what I would like to see at this point in his career. I want to see Leben vs. Wand so bad though, lol, I can't believe I want that.
