“The Axe Murderer” is looking to return to the light heavyweight division after going 2-2 in the UFC middleweight division. The 36-year-old Pride legend tells Sherdog.com that he still has some fight left in him.
“I want to either fight a catchweight bout at 198 pounds or at light heavyweight. At middleweight, I’m very hungry (laughs). Right now, I’m doing weight training and some shadow boxing. I’m kind of on vacation now, paying attention to the family, but next year the Wand is back.”
The last we had seen of Silva at 205 was in a knockout loss to Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in Dec. 2008. Wandy would then decide on the drop after going 1-2 in the UFC after a return from his epic run in Pride FC. As for who would be next for the entertaining brawler – he is not too picky.
“Actually, anyone they offer is good for me. I’ll face whomever the UFC wants.”
Any suggestions as to who should welcome Wandy back up to 205?
