According to Wanderlei Silva’s official website, Silva’s opponent for his first fight in the UFC since 2000 will be revealed at UFC 77 this weekend:
Wanderlei Silva is once again the special guest to the next UFC in USA. UFC 77 will take place on October 20, when the name of his opponent will be released. The date has been confirmed.
In contact with Wanderlei, he explains that the name is already defined and that the disclosure will only be possible after the event. Wanderlei has been training intensively and has little spare time due the physical and tactic trainings pace imposed to him by his coaches, but he makes a point of attending UFC.
All I have to say is that it better be Chuck Liddell or else I’m stabbing myself in the eye.
