I would love to see how that fight had gone if Wanderlei hadn't gotten tired easily.
If he had the energy of his younger self, he'd fight like his younger self. The more relaxed pace is not a decision, fighters are forced to do that as they get older.

Though if he had blitzed Rich in round one, he may well have stopped him.

These fights should not be main events, as a TUF finale its ok but it was a numbered event in Brazil...
