Wanderlei Silva was rumored to be facing Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 110 on February 20 in Australia. All that seems to have changed. Wanderleir’s new opponent appears to be Michael Bisping. Thew news comes by way of Fighters Only Magazine.
Bisping bounced back from a UFC 100 loss to Dan Henderson with a big win over Denis Kang at UFC 105. Bisping will look to string together a series of wins to climb back into title contention.
This fight is very possibly going to be the headliner. However, Anotnio Rodrigo Nogueira has stated his desire to fight on this card.
No word has been given on who Akiyama will face or if he will remain on this card.
