His speed/pace/timing/reflexes type fuctions has also taken a beating with age, he's still fast when he rushes people but not like back then. He also seem to have a bit worse cardio nowadays. Add the chin to that and he's alot worse than he was.

Actually the cardio part I agree with too, the rest I feel as though it's just the same, even vitor KO'd him back in the day

I think his striking is a touch more refined now then it was.

Whether hes a better or worse fighter, im not sure. His chin is certainly not what it was.

Vitor is a vicious striker & a very bad matchup for a brawler like Wandy tho. Superfast crips punches will beat brawling most times. I still think Wandy was alot faster back then.

Not a big Chael guy but Wandy is pretty damn incoherent.

...Honestly, I'm getting burned out on Sonnen. Just sick of the antics. He got completely destroyed by Jones and still thinks it was stopped early. Point Blank---Sonnen is lucky the ref saved his ass with the stoppage. He was already a bloody mess and if the fight continued, Jon would have seriously hurt Chael. With that said, Wandy still is packing some heat these days but if I were him, I would brush up on my BJJ bigtime. Wandy has weak TDD and I see Sonnen putting him on his back all night grinding out a UD. I don't know with the Karma that Chael has been experiencing, Wandy is certainly capable of catching him and once there's blood in the water, Wandy is one of the best finishers ever, not too mention Wanderlie really has worked on his counterstriking. He did it to Cung Le and more recently, his fight with Stann. Both ending brutally. Sonnen can win this with his relentless pace and wrestling. Truthfully, I would like to see Wandy put Sonnen to sleep but unfortunately it won't happen...
