What's that have to do with the subject at hand? I believe this thread pertains to Mr. Sonnen attempting to stand on Wand's shoulders to reach some of that limelight by calling him out. Sorry my misspelling of your hero's name hurt your feelings. I mean, the C and F are rather close to one another after all..

Also, Wand has never been submitted, tapped or "accidentally" tapped. He also has more finishes, more fights, and more fans. JS

Yeah, we all agree Wand was unreadable for the most part, but c'mon, you don't need to speak dog language, like Dr. Dolittle, to comprehend some K9 intentions toward your calf. Specially when this dog is Wanderlei "Mad Dog" Silva (his original nickname - "Cachorro Louco").
Sonnen played dumb at the moment and now he wants to look all surprised Wand was complaining about something in his face. This is silly. Sonnen can't be serious selling this idea he had absolutely no clue.

LOL, Chael 'stealing' Wand's limelight

Fighting Sonnen will get Wand more attention and spotlight than he has in years.

And Chael has never been as brutally Knocked out as Wanderlei has.

Didnt wanderlei get knocked out cold 4x in his last 7 losses?? And all those knockouts were straight BRUTAL.










I dont know what limelight you are speaking off since Wanderlei has alot more to gain from beating Chael then Chael does from beating Wanderlei. And Wandy has called Chael out on more then 1 occasion. Now the fight makes sense and its GO TIME!.

Oh, c'mon, you know very well this reverts directly to each one style. Wand is far the most exciting fighter for the fans as he normally goes for the kill while Chael is the effective LNP guy.

Again. This is Chael Sonnen big mouth paying off here. In what realm Chael Sonnen can be compared to Wanderlei Silva MMA legacy wise? Wand held for a looong time the gold Sonnen only dreams about. He helped to spread MMA in Pride era with his unique forward style which made him loved by zillions of people who became their fans and followers.

Wand is very respected by other fighters and known as a kind person out of the cage. Wand needs no artificial light coming from the likes of Chael Sonnen.

It isnt like Chael will be claiming Wanderleis legacy if he beats him. All he will be getting is a win over a over the hill fighter. If Wanderlei beats Chael he will be getting his name back out in the contenders column. If he gets by Chael he could be looking at a number 1 contender fight ("Maybe"). After Chael he can justify a fight versus Vitor Belfort and if he wins that he could face Anderson. I know Dana White would love a fight between Wandy and Anderson just for the sheer fact of the type of Highlight real that will provide Anderson.

So if Wandy gets this fight it could be his last chance to once again be a contender.

Chael on the other hand gains nothing from it.


Im not hating on Wanderlei im just pointing out the truth. I know your the type of guy who is a bit hesitant to the truth when your feelings are in the way.

Hell thinking about it if he gets by Chael he could also justify a REmatch with Bisping (Even though he beat Bisping Bisping is currently ranked higher then Wandy. So Bisping would be the best path to the title.) Both Vitor and Bisping are wins that put Wandy very close to that title shot. That is if we dont get Jon Jones vs Anderson or Weidman defeats Anderson in the near future.

I agree with most of this, but one thing Chael does stand to gain from this is a nice paycheck.

You've got to hand it to the man, only Chael can turn a fight that has no real bearing on the title picture(win or lose, there's no realistic way Wandy gets another shot at the title) into a main event that will probably draw more buyers than title fights at the lower weight classes.

Yeah. You are the one who points the truth and the one who knows my type. You have no grounds for that claim.

Your assessment is confusing. So, Wand is over the hill, but a win over Sonnen makes him a contender? Also mixing up 185 and 205 out of the blue possibilities...

People really need to put that stupid Wanderlei's chin's gone argument to rest. It's not 2010 anymore he's been KO'd once in his last six fights. Having a 16% chance of being KO'd does not make a glass chin. Yes he had those four "brutal" KO's but that was seven years, many guys have been KO'd that many times in seven years especially at the HW/LHW level.

Appreciate the man for giving you three FOTN's in a row. Shouldn't that be more important than the fact that he was brutally knocked out years ago. And you know who isn't going to knock him out...Chael Sonnen.
