| by

UFC officials have announced the main event for UFC On Fuel TV 8, and it will feature middleweights Wanderlei Silva and Brian Stann. The card takes place March 3 from Saitama, Japan.

Stann confirmed news of the fight when he posted a response to Diego Sanchez on Twitter that the two would be cutting weight for the same event. Sanchez will face Takanori Gomi in his return to lightweight.

Silva (34-12-1) has hinted at his desire to compete on a UFC card from Japan, as he made a name for himself while winning the Pride title in the country. "The Axe Murderer" is coming off a loss to Rich Franklin earlier this year.

Stann (12-5) is just 1-2 in his last three fights, having been defeated by Michael Bisping and Chael Sonnen.
