Wanderlei Silva possibly out until 2010 recovering from facial surgery

WanderleiA middleweight match-up between Wanderlei Silva and Michael Bisping previously rumored to be taking place at UFC 105 will not happen.

According to Bisping in a recent blog on his official website, Silva may be out until sometime in 2010 due to “The Axe Murderer” currently recovering from facial  surgery.

There is no news of a replacement opponent for Bisping at this time, but it makes sense that he will still be competing on the card being that it takes place in Manchester, England.

The date for the event is set for November 14 and will air on Spike TV.

Wanderlei has not confirmed or denied the surgery, but reports have circulated recently that his facial appearance had undergone some change.
