"The Axe Murderer" will be coming home. Wanderlei Silva announced recently that he intends to step back into the Octagon in the division where he became an international superstar. The light heavyweight division is being dominated by Jon Jones, but a title run isn't in the cards for Silva.

No, instead Silva will be going for a last hurrah, likely, and will look to take fights that will be entertaining for the fans. Silva has always been very appreciative of MMA fans and looks to put on an exciting fight even if it isn't in his best interest.

Regardless of where Silva will enter the division rankings-wise, he will be put near the top of any card he competes on due to his popularity. As such, a worthy opponent of equal popularity would need to be present in order to create the best possible matchup for the UFC and Silva.
