I think Sexy has more on his hands and by no means will he walk through Wandy....
Belcher is 6'2" Wandy is 5'11" the size disparity was the main problem for Akiyama in that fight. Well that and the low blow which completely changed the fight. Wandy didn't exactly look super impressive barely beating Bisping who Akiyama would wreck either. Wandy has lost a ton of power moving down to 185 and I think his striking style is a bad idea against someone with legitimate KO power in their hands and feet.

1st Bold = Excuse....

2nd Bold = assumption

Sexy needs to come out and put on a show, to say the least i was not impressed with him in the Belcher fight regardless of what you say i watched that fight several times because i was disgusted at the outcome.....

If your a Sexy fan....you want him to have won but making the argument he deserved to is different....

Where as if you are or weren't a Belcher fan he made a strong case to gain many fans and IMO......was robbed that night for a guy the UFC wants to bring in and make successful...


Truth.....

Truth.....
Akiyama clearly won that fight and you saying that a large reach advantage is an excuse really just shows how biased you are and how little you know about combat sports. His size advantage was the only thing belcher had going for him in the entire fight it is the reason Akiyama couldn't properly gnp him and the reason he was able to strike effectively at all since most of what he did was use his reach to keep Akiyama on the end of his jab. It isn't an excuse it is a proper breakdown of what happened in a fight.

Wandy can't do that to Akiyama they are basically the same height and size so you can't use what Belcher did as a reason for why Wandy will win. That is equivalent to saying Kongo would beat Mir because Brock took him down and GNPed him out. Fighters have different physical and technical tools.

Well I love wandy and I wanna bang sexyama... Okay so I'd bang either of them, but my point is I'll be rooting for both of them. I'm hoping FOTY going to a draw.

Sexyama is in my FFL so... Either way I win some and lose some.

I enjoy watching Akiyama fight because all of his fights are entertaining and I know everyone loves him but he is one of the most overrated fighters I've ever seen. Wand by TKO 1st round.
