Fresh off his win over Brian Stann in Japan this past weekend, Wanderlei Silva was called out on Twitter by UK middleweight Tom “Kong” Watson who wants that fight to take place at middleweight.

This past Saturday from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan at UFC on Fuel TV 8, Wanderlei Silva defeated US Marine and former WEC light heavyweight champion Brian Stann in what was a Fight of the Night performance and another historic win for the Pride FC and UFC legend in the “Land of the Rising Sun”.

But it didn’t take long for “The Axe Murderer” to be publicly challenged, as UK UFC middleweight contender Tom “Kong” Watson took to his Twitter page to call out the legend and tell him to drop from light heavyweight and come down to middleweight and get knocked the f**k out.

Watson Tweeted:

“Yo @wandfc, stay on your supplements at 205, or come back to 185 and get knocked the fuck out. You decide? Obrigado @ufc & @danawhite.”

Watson has come off a recent win over Stanislav Nedkov at UFC on Fuel TV 7 back in February at Wembley Arena in London, England.
