Hurray for Wanderlei Silva!
The Axe Murderer barely survived a brutal back and forth battle with Brian Stann at UFC on Fuel 8 last Sunday, March 3. The bout took place at the very arena where the aging Brazilian star first made a name for himself, Japan's Saitama Super Arena.
Silva dropped Stann (who didn't go down for lack of trying) with less than a minute left in the second round, earning himself Knockout of the Night and Fight of the Night honors. Alas, rumor has it that Wandy's planning to call it a career after Sunday's events.
If that was indeed his last fight, then we wouldn't want to remember him in any other way. That bout had classic Wanderlei written all over it. So thanks for the 17 years, idol! And we hope you'll like these 17 GIFs we'll remember you by.
