Wandy has said before it isnt about wins and losses its about giving the fans what they want and I have never seen a boring Wandy fight.

I dont really think wandy has lost to much of a step, i think he is facing more consistent top level competition these days. Im not talking about since he came to the ufc, his last six fights have been against top level competition. Crocop, henderson, liddell, jardine, jackson, and franklin. That is a pretty tough stretch. If they did strength of schedule in mma then he would be near the top. I think he will get on another streak once he takes a couple of easier fights at middleweight.

Maybe, like Liddell, he needs to move to fighting B-level competition.

You bring up a great point. His recent fights have been very challenging, more so than anyone else of late I would say. Wandy will always be one of my favorites. His fearlessness and willingness to accept a challenge has garnered much respect. To me he is brutality personified.

Not much for Wanderlei in Japan right now.

A fight against Mousasi could send him into a permanent retirement, while it would be very hard to argue against Manhoef catching him with that one punch.

Angry Wandy won!

Personally, I think Wandy won his last fight. The judges were just retarded cause they scored the Uno/Fisher fight horribly!

I scored it a draw, and after watching it again I also think Wand won, but I dont think the judges were retarded to give it to Franklin. It was a really close fight. But if anything I think it showed that Wand is still a serious contender especially when he cuts down to 185. Im excited for Wand's future, and I think he can make a run at 185.

Yeah, but that will be 9 UFC PPVs I'll buy to support him.
