if rampage is smart, he'll take wanderlei down and punish him...why bother w/ the standup when your opponent is so helpless of his back?
rampage via 2nd round tko
I can't agree at all with this in any manner.
I think Wandy haters make pretty excuses.
Jackson better take Wandy down. But he wasn't too hot on the ground in his last fight anyway. He got triangled and mounted.
Than again, he didn't do well on his feet either. In the UFC he's beaten Hendo.
And flash KOed Chuck.
Wandy did the same against Jardine, and lost a decision to Chuck.
I don't see it as being a Nuthugging case for Wandy. But more of a case of both of these guys matched up with Wandy holding double KOs over Page.
Sometimes it is not nuthugging. However if such a label makes some feel better than so be it.
