and Cung doesn't have KO power? that fight is more recent than the Leben fight, and maybe Wand has tightened up his defence some.

Keep in mind Leben has (or had) a ridiculous chin too, and Wandy tagged him hard. Leben said himself that he was pretty much on autopilot when he started throwing those uppercuts.

Stann has a solid chin, but I don't see him triggering berserker mode when he gets popped.

Bad matchup for Wandy but it's still possible. He has beaten and done well against some very good strikers even after his chin got shot.

I would laugh my ass of if Wandy came out and wrestled Stann & maybe even got him in a sub.
I bet Wandy could do it if he wanted to.

Normaly I would go with wandy but he had been unimpressive as of late and Stann's only real key losses are to chael and a much improved bisping so I pick Stann on this one.

Thing about Wandy he needs to hate his opponent to get that true savagery out of em. If Wand takes the same amount of damage as Leben, he's gonna get brain damage. Wonder if the UFC does CT scans for their fighters.

This is a fight to propel Stann's career. A win over a marquee name and legend. Stann is a stand up dude, but I'll root for Wand even though I believe it's one of those missions he knows he probably won't come back from.

I love Wandy, but against someone with KO power I have no choice but to pick against him. Stann by KO.

Im totally aboard the WAND train for this!

That being said, If he gets knocked clean out in the 1st I will not be surprised at all.

I stand with Wandy until the bitter end! Should be an awesome fight regardless of who wins.
