Wanderlei may never hold a title again, but I don't think he's as quite done a a lot of people say he is. He took some insane shots from Stann and kept coming back. I usually despise romanticized moments like this, but in this case I'll let my cynicism slide. Great stuff from Silva. I think he's still got a bit left. As much as I like Stann, the guy has a pretty bad ground game and a below average chin as well. He's got power and moderately technical striking, but he needs to start adding more to his game.

Great fight, glad Wanderlei got his moment.

Ari I'd so like to be with you but I think Japan had a lot to do with his ability to withstand the punishment he did tonight. He wanted to make sure he left EVERYTHING out there for the Japanese crowd.
Previous fights where he's been KO'd in the UFC he got hit a lot less & wasn't able to recover. Call it adrenaline, heart, whatever but I reckon there was more of it tonight than there has been with most of his fights in the UFC. With that said, I'd love to be wrong and see more of that Wand.

Reminded me of the Frye Takeyama higlights vid on ytube though. Any reason to post this

I say he will want to fight Belfort before retiring, but it might not happen where Belfort is kind of a contender again

I agree Wand's chin isn't as gone as everyone says, or I said even.

He took heavy shots from Cung Le, Franklin and got absolutely BLASTED by Stann. Even Bisping hit him with an *extremely* clean, flush on the chin, right hand that looked (not just for Bisping, but in general) very powerful and he shrugged it all off.

He may not have his legendary chin of old, but he can still take a few big shots and survive.

Great 1st round, after which i thought that Stann will probably get the knockout. and then came wanderlei's left hook.
