wanderlei silvaMMA legend Wanderlei Silva’s next opponent will be Brian Stann, according to MMAFighting.com. Stann asked for the match in the media, following his UFC 125 win over Chris Leben.

So far, Stann has established a pretty solid brand as the “All American” and is improving steadily as a fighter since joining Greg Jackson’s camp in New Mexico. Brian now trains alongside men such as Jon Jones, Diego Sanchez, Carlos Condit, and one can see the benefits of such high-level training, in his recent scraps.

Wanderlei will look to make it back-to-back wins with a victory over Stann, as he most recently defeated the widely disliked Michael Bisping. Is it possible that either man goes on a tear and lines himself up for a shot at the middleweight title in 2011? This is a key match-up in finding that out.
