Wanderlei Silva Says Bout With Yoshihiro Akiyama Could Be Very Soon

0

Fresh off his unanimous decision victory over Michael Bisping at UFC 111 last month, Wanderlei Silva appears to be geared up to get right back into the Octagon against Yoshihiro Akiyama:<br><br>"The next is (Akiyama) and he is number one, and the number two is Bisping because I'm going to give a rematch to him," said Silva. "It's a great match because he's an incredible fighter. He's got an Olympic gold medal. He's had great performances in Dream in Japan, (he's) very famous there," Silva commented about Akiyama. "I think it's a great opportunity, one more really tough opponent, and I'm going to prove in the future it's possible I can be with the best fighters in 185.""I know I'm going to fight soon," said the former Pride champion. "I'm going to have a great surprise for my fans what date I'm going to fight. I'm so close to signing my next fight, we'll talk about things a little bit more, and I think I'm going to be fighting soon."<br><br>HT: <a href=http://www.mmaweekly.com>MMAWeekly.com</a>
