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...

Congrats Rich, you beat a guy who should've retired three fights ago.
Good God. The amount of hate wreaking from you is quite evident. As is the douchebaggery of "I watch more MMA than you" in your next post.

I like how you equate throwing recklessly with little regard for safety as "real fighting". Leonard Garcia should be your favorite fighter.

Also, if Wand would have won this I highly doubt you would have posted something similar. Chances are it would have still been hating Rich.

Did you pay for the card? Or are you bitching because you lost your precious time?

Well Wandy fought exactly the way he should have, maybe a lil too tentative. But as SM said he doesn't have the chin/conditioning he had in his younger days. It's too bad really. After watching tonight I realized this is one of those times where this statement rings true..."if" this was in the early to mid 2000s Wandy would have swarmed from the get go and NEVER let up til his opponent was unconscious that much I could guarantee.

After 47 fights spanning 16 years he's still got it in him, good to see glimpses of his barrages.

Wand should pick one last fight of his choice for a W then leave gracefully.

PS: Rich showed why he's still very much in the game. Good win!

He probably would have stopped rich. Franklin didn't deal with his pressure very well. The only time Rich showed he could handle it was the very end of the fight. Other than that it looked like Rich had a hard time avoiding damage going backwards.

Also I'm more sure than ever that vitor would blit Wand and make short work of him again. Vitor hits harder, swarms better and is more technical than Rich. Rich was scoring all night with straight punches down the pipe, just never got a chance to capitalize on it.

This was a great fight! I scored the second round 10-8 for Wandy, but all other rounds for Rich. I really enjoyed this fight tho, both did great!

Only in MMA where the level of striking is so poor in general that people don't realize they have a low probability of getting KO'd if they actually throw jabs and and short precise crosses and not load up on every punch and throw wild hooks.

Matt Brown isn't even a good striker really, he's just good for MMA because he knows how to touch guys and not get hit that much. It's sad when you see more high level striking from Matt freaking Brown than "ME" fighters.


Also, I would never pay for this garbage but I can see why people are rushing to defend their investment. The same kind of people that bought this card must be the same kind of people that bought Horse Armor in the Elder Scrolls Oblivion.

The first round was all Rich, and he tagged him hard multiple times and dropped him. I really thought Rich was gonna knock him out until Wandy caught him
