Stann has a solid chin, but I don't see him triggering berserker mode when he gets popped.
Stann also happened to put Leben out, except he actually put him out unlike Wand.

This is just a bad match up for him, Stann can eat one and the one he can dish out will be more than enough on current day Wand.

Wandy is undoubtedly the better striker.. and Wandy recently has seemed to tighten up his striking defense as well as bring a better pace and fight smarter vs. his typical nonstop berserker mode..

I would not be surprised to see Wandy get a well timed takedown or two, he is obviously far better on the ground than a guy like Stann.. So if he manages to get hurt and recover he should totally mix it up and go for some G&P or Sub..

The only reason Wandy will lose this fight is due to a huge chin disadvantage and that fact that Stann probably hits as hard as Anderson Silva (proof ala the Leben TKO)btw Stann never actually put Leben out.

I like both fighters and I think either one can finish the other, but if we don't see the finish then I see Wandy taking the decision just because he is better everywhere...

This will be a tough win for Wanderlei but I'm hoping he channels some samurai spirit and gets another victory. Since it is in Japan does that mean he gets to kick and stomp heads? One more Wand soccer kick highlight for the youtube!

I think that taking it to the ground and using his ground game would be a wise decision for wandy, he can get some take downs and could even pull off a sub,
but I think he probably will try to stand with stann and will end up going to sleep.

Didn't even realize it's March already this weekend.

I have a feeling this may be the last time we'll see Wand if he goes down. I think he said it best. "I was the champion in bare knuckle fights. Pride champion for six years. Now it's finished." What he probably meant was that none of it matters this weekend only the W.

Wandy has to balance his pace. He has been too tentative lately, sure because he got caught a few times, but when his machine gun starts to land it's bad weather for anybody, including Stann.
Wand via nostalgic Thay clinch murder. War Wand.

My head is saying Stann. Wanderlei has good power and the fearless brawling style to put anyone in trouble if he connects clean. But his chin just isn't what it needs to be to support his style of fighting anymore. So while I definitely think he has a shot at winning this, I'm not sure he can stay out of trouble with Stann.

Not a fight to bet on, they're just going to slug it out. Both hit hard, both aggressive, Wand is more skilled but much more war torn.

I just want Wand to dump Stann on his ass and submit him, which if he chose to do I think he'd achieve quite easily... he'll probably chose to trade bombs though -_-.
