The UFC on Fuel TV 8 main event will feature Wanderlei Silva and Brian Stann in their returns to the light heavyweight division.
Silva's career is coming to a close, so cutting to 185 pounds is no longer a necessity. Meanwhile, Stann is in need of a win over a big name in order to get back on track toward contending for the UFC middleweight title.
In addition to the 205-pound main event, an important heavyweight bout will be contested between Stefan Struve and Mark Hunt. Struve is currently considered one of the top-10 UFC heavyweights and will try to maintain that standing against Hunt, who has been out of action for 12 months.
The fight card also features Diego Sanchez's return to lightweight for a bout with Takanori Gomi and a clash of middleweight contenders Hector Lombard and Yushin Okami.
To promote UFC on Fuel TV 8, which will take place at the Saitama Super Arena in Tokyo, Japan, a pre-fight press conference will be held on Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET. Event headliners Silva and Stann will likely join UFC president Dana White for the presser.
Video of the press conference will be streamed live on the above video player. After the presser, stay tuned to Bleacher Report MMA for all the latest on UFC on Fuel TV 8 and the rest of your MMA needs.
