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.

Themesh has a little shameless behaviour in the past
just wondering i have probs missed something (sorry if i have) where did the rumour of wandy training with Griffen come from? was it because they were saw at the same gym or did someone say something to the media or whatever just wondering, good read non the less wandy is a fighter i love watching and its great to know he seems like a decent bloke too
also (again sorry if its announced) is it named who wandy will be fighting first in ufc and when?

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?
