Silva: Stann Was So Close To Beating Me In The First Round | UFC NEWS


“I don’t know what happens here in Japan, man,” said Silva. “The fans just give me a lot of energy. I’m so happy to make all my fans around the world happy. That’s why I fight. I fight for you. I’m here because of you and my God, so thanks for the great support.”

“I got out of the strategy in the first round a little bit, because he’s a tough guy. He was so close to beating me. After I finished the first round, my coach told me to the right hand, and it happened.”

“He’s a tough guy; Brian Stann is a great opponent. I’m so happy to fight a guy like him and to just make a fight like that. I’m there to fight. I’m not there to run. I love to fight with guys like that. Thanks so much to Brian Stann for fighting me.”

“This was a special fight. The guys at light heavyweight are so big. I don’t know what is going to happen next.”

- Wanderlei Silva following last Saturday’s win on FUEL TV.

    an article for all the whiners who didn’t think Stann would win if he pressed the action. Wandy was tired that’s why he faked the first low blow. let the crying begin. haha

      And Stann was so tired by the second round that he decided to take a nap… wait, that doesn’t sound right…
