what exactly have you or anyone else criticizing Wand done lately on a international scale of this magnitude?
That's right, nothing.
Oh please. What exactly has Wand done thats of any kind of international magnitude? Are you being serious? Shouting at a camera doesn't mean its doing anything to help anything.
Hes nowhere near as popular as you think. If you look at his youtube channel, the two videos with by far the most hits are the ones where he talks about/to Chael fecking Sonnen. That right there says it all.
Hes popular with a certain demographic, I'll give you that.
What exactly has Wand done thats of any kind of international magnitude?
Well obviously nothing, I mean Wand's only been one of the most important figures in MMA internationally for longer then most people can remember. He's a MMA legend, a great ambassador visiting places like France to promote the sport, conveying important messages to a nation during his spare time, a huge name in America, Canada, South America, Asia, Europe and still KO'ing fighters in the UFC presently all while being well past his prime.
Not a big deal or anything, Wand's clearly a dime a dozen type figure who is making himself look bad according to a few clueless internet persona's who are not even good at trolling on a discussion forum.
Trolls constantly lame and desperate efforts to poop on Wanderlei tells the story here and all over this site. Like a guy who is so unpopular or not relevant is gonna attract blatant trolls time and attention like that, sure, that's how it always works right? Make a million more posts about how Wanderlei isn't worth anyone's time, really compelling stuff.

Yeah no kidding, that a select few are still trying and embarrassing themselves after failing repeatedly over the last few weeks over anything Wand related is bittersweet. Now that is what you call commitment.
Poor people who believes everything that will come from the mouth of an MMA fighter will be about fighting.
Those bashing Wand for this video have absolute zero understanding about the current situation in Brazil, where people are claiming for their rights before a corrupted govern and useless blood suckers politicians. Zillions of dollars deviated from schools, hospitals, combat against crime, infrastructure in this make believe democracy.
Wand IS a celebrity in Brazil, YES, and he is joining a large group of other celebrities on claiming the people to show the guys in charge a huge change is required for right now in this country.
Wand is doing for his country way more than most of his critics now have ever done for theirs.
This message is not about UFC, PRIDE FC, MMA or any of these small things we use to entertain ourselves in our spare time. This is an important message to the people of Brazil, coming from a successful Brazilian, who earned the right to address his countrymen from any air conditioned hotel room in the world.
Congrats to Lidd and Boom for their approach and understanding.

More power to him. I respect the hell out of him personally. If you haven't been to a third world country you wouldn't understand, and you are ignorant, so i wont hold it against you. He is trying to better his country, and you guys are bashing him? Typical spoiled american attitude
