MMAweekly today is reportingthat Wanderlei Silva will face Michael Bisping and not Yoshihiro Akiyama as originally thought at UFC 110 in Sydney, Australia. The event will mark the first trip by the UFC down under and is set to take place late February in 2010.
This fight should be the nights co-main event and is a fight many would like to see. Bispings chin has been very suspect of late getting the lights turned out by Dan Henderson at UFC 100 and Denis Kang also rocked him a few times at UFC 105. Silva will be making his 185 debut and he will test that chin of Bisping all night. I like that Bisping want the big fights but does he realize Silva hits hard, might be biting off more then he can chew here.
