Either way, it's going to wild, and one hell of a fight. Who gives a **** if Wanderlei's no longer relevant in the rankings, or that Brian Stann isn't cut out for the big fights after all, this is a ******* war, and I would pay to watch it any day of the week. I'm pumped for this fight.
Pretty much couldn't have called it any better if I tried. What a fight! Probably my favourite first round of all-time, amazing. Would happily watch Wandy and Stann slug it out on every card!

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.
So we've noticed, let the estrogen flow Ari.. it's natural xx

YEEEEEAAHHH man I'm so happy for this. First Hunt then Wandy & both fights where epic. Best in a long time.

Also regarding Wandys chin I do believe it's the weightcut to 185 that messes up his chin. At 205 I believe it might still be there. Wandy should stay at 205 at this stage.

He may not have his legendary chin of old, but he can still take a few big shots and survive.
^^^^^^^And specially at 205. Wanderlei at 185 is extremely drained and weakened, lets not forget. At 205, I'd say he is at pretty much 80% of the monster he used to be in his days. Sometimes, this is more than enough.

Sorry mmaswe82, I posted before reading yours. Agree completely.

...What a crazy, blazing slugfest that was! They kept swinging bombs, dropping each other! Vintage Wanderlei again! What a Pride flashback that was. Gotta give Stann props and the heart to chase and brawl with Wanderlei. I don't care who u are, u gotta have monster stones to stand and bang with Wandy! Bad gameplan but exciting as can be. When Wandy started to widen his stance and stretch out his arms, he was just waiting for the counter. Perfect. What a 2 punch combination highlight reel that was. Incredible fight!....

Bros- Hunt/Struve was brutal as hell. Hunt's hands are money & he put the HW Division on notice. Mark's leaping left hook ala- Roy Jones Jr. style, couldn't have been placed any better breaking Steph's jaw. Outstanding fight. Look out top dogs, here comes the bloke!...

I couldn't watch last night so I had to catch it this morning. YES YES YES !!!!!!! Omg I am sooooo happy! What a freaking first round, best round I have seen all year! And Wandy getting the KO, at home in Japan, and doing it with an old school axe murderer style? **** I couldn't be happier right now!

It's trippy seeing a vote for "draw" in the poll above. Absolutely the last fight that would end that way.

Damn, perfect retirement scenario for Wandy. Props to Stann - still a f*ckin beast regardless.
