I don't agree personally. I scored the fight as a very marginal Franklin win. The Uno-Fisher fight result was very surprising though, I thought Uno had that fight wrapped up.

At the end of the day, Wanderlei isn't about winning or losing, or trying to keep a good record or be known as the best fighter in the world. The man just wants to put on a good show and throw down, which is why we all love him.

The question that needs to be asked is 'would I rather see him throw hands with top guys in the UFC, or lesser competition in Japan?'.

For me, the answer is simple, I want to see Wanderlei break his hands and face fighting top guys that you know will give a good show, not scrubs(not that I have anything against Scrubs, Scrubs is awesome).

The thing I think he is missing is his killer instinct. I think if he goes back to Japan and reconnects with his old camp it will be the best for him. He can sign a 3 or 4 fight contract,get back on his winning ways then make a comeback in the ufc. But its like he has even said he doesn't care about winning. I respect that and Wanderlei is my favorite fighter of all time, but that is loser talk man. He needs to find himself as a fighter, even though I also thought he won that fight against franklin. Lets see how he does at 185, then I will start another thread and we can discuss that.

Exclamation Wandi and Shoot Boxe

The only problem with that is that Wandi left his original camp for a reason. He is in Vegas training there now for a reason and shoote boxe is not what they used to be. So in order for him to be the best he can be he just has to keep training with the camp he has!

Yeah, he has a very good camp, and your right, Chute Boxe isnt what it once was. I wish I could go see Wand's gym, one of these days.

Cool Xtreme Couture

I've actually heard that he sometimes works out at Xtreme Couture cause there aren't that many workout partners at his current gym!
