Also, Rich should take this by KO. I love me some Wandy, but he hasn't used the thai clinch in what seems to be 5 years, and I don't see him using it here. He'll brawl and get tagged by the better striker. Rich, at this point, is better. Doesn't matter if this is at 205 or 185, Silva's going to sleep.

Wanderlei's thai clinch has become Hendo's big right hand, sad to say.
you never know though.. considering Rich's kryptonite is the thai clinch, and SIlva will know this..

i have a feeling we will see Franklin vs A.Silva 1 and 2 again with W.Silva finishing him in the same fashion..

(that would be amazing..)

Shogun is my homeboy.

id say for sure if not harder.

did any of you guys see rampage on sports science tv show ? his right has 1800 lbs of force !!

exactly .

Chuck fell, and then Rampage landed a series of blows that Chuck couldn't recover from. Thats not a one punch KO. But Rampage is the hardest puncher in the LHW division. I'd say that Wandy definitely hits harder than Rashad though.
hard to say really ...

I really wanted to see Belcher get fed to The Axe Murderer. Patrick Cote or Chris Leben (after his ban) would be a fun match too against Wand.
leben vs wand would be a hell of a fun fight to watch ...id buy it

At this point, sadly, if I absolutely had to bet on that fight to save my life, I'd bet Leben

You're just a cook...
