It has been rumored that Michael Bisping would be facing Wanderlei Silva at UFC 105 in England but now, according to Bisping, Silva will not be his opponent due to “The Axe Murderer” undergoing facial surgery that will likely keep him out for the rest of 2009:
Quick update on the potential Wanderlei Silva fight. Unfortunately thats not gonna happen. He's undergone facial surgery, so obviously won't be fighting in the near future. Rumours are he's actually out for the rest of the year.
So as of right now, Im still unaware of who I'll be facing at UFC 105. Obviously as stated before, when I know, you know.
