Wanderlei Silva Thrashes Brian Stann

Wanderlei Silva uses a flurry of punches to finish off Brian Stann by TKO in the second round.

Wanderlei Silva will go down as one of mixed martial arts most violent finishers. The aptly named 36-year-old Axe Murderer left yet another reminder of that, American Brian Stann, smoldering in ruins at 4:08 of Round 2 to cap the main event of UFCs sixth trip to Japan on Saturday.

I knew what I had to risk signing on the dotted line to fight in Japan against that man, said 32-year-old Stann, who is expected t return to middleweight. Wanderlei has always been one of my favorite fighters ever. Hes one of the fighters that inspired me to start this sport. Im very proud to have been a part of his career, as much as this hurts right now. My hearts broken. But Im still proud that I put my name on the line and fought him.
