RodrigoRua Posted July 3, 2011 Report Share Posted July 3, 2011 Even if you love and respect a fighter (I love and respect Wand) sometimes you also have to be honest and face reality. Wanderley Silva picked and chooose Leben saying that this would be a "war, the guy would bring the fight to him, blah, blah, blah" but wait: Dana wanted to have Vitor vs Wand 2 and Wand declined (I dont have the link just google yourself) Vitor would also bring the fight to Wand BUT THE TRUTH IS that Wanderley thought he would walk all over Leben like Anderson did LOL and make a big comeback from his lay off. Well, the fight started and Wand charged against Leben like Leben was an amateur fighter who would go down easily. WRONG ... Leben BEAT WAND ON HIS OWN GAME !!!! My points is: Where is the Wanderley who beat Bisping ? The Wanderley that I was excited about was that Wanderley who waited for Bisping mistakes and even "leg swipe" Bisping. No matter how many years Wand has in the sport I think he learned some lessons last night: 1. Dont be too confident after 1 YEAR AND HALF lay off buddy 2. Do not understimate any guy in UFC specially a guy like Leben (specially after a long lay off) and specially when you couldnt finish Pisping 3. Even if you are a legend dont just go there to score a quick KO because you might the one getting Koed LOL 4. The idea of "Kamikaze" fighter that "try to finish even if you get Koed trying" after a while gets old and non sense. So all Wands fight will last 27 sec whit this mentality ? 5. Most likely his next fight will be against Akyiama and if Wand does the same he did against Leben HE WILL GET KOED AGAIN !!!! Again, this thread is not about loving ang hating Wand but about reality check Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
