I read somewhere before about Wandy is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet.(I think is Fedor or Mirko who said that about Wand).

Nice find.

Once the ref steps in, Wanderlei throws his arms up instantly and has the biggest smile on his face. It's hilarious.
i agree... his staredowns are legit. dude just comes across as a legit menace.

Seriously it amazing how many people dislike Wanderlei when he really never has a bad word to say about anyone but Arona and it's not like Arona has ever been a very respectful guy. Seriously the history of Chute Boxe and idk why they always seem to say very respetful things while certain guys for BTT not all seem to be assholes (Filho and Arona.)

So what happens when Rua is the champ and Wand is #1 contender? Does he just refuse the fight? Can he do that with a UFC contract?

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.
