That said it wasn't disrespectful.

He was sparring a pro MMA figher and wanted to test himself. The heel kicks when on his back were unnecessary, but they didn't land in the right spot anyway.
You wouldn't be saying that if you had Wanderlei elbowing you in the face shortly after bitch slapping you, delivering knees and then taking you down.

I say well played to the kid. He's 16, sparred with Wanderlei Silva, and instead of freezing and getting mauled he had the balls to throw a spinning kick and initiate the takedown. He did pretty well on the ground too, fair play to him.

I also think the kid did reasonably well. He didn't fold although he was clearly dominated, and he tried his stuff (sure Silva could have knocked him out at any moment, but that's not the question).

I also don't see anything disrespectful in a spinning back kick. It's a sparring session, it's there to try things out that usually rarely work in competition. He makes the best he could out of this opportunity, what's he supposed to do - throwing some jabs and then sit down againż

I didn't get why the spinning back kick was, more the heel kicks when he was on his back.

What was so disrespectful about that spinning back kick? If anything i thought the BITCH SLAPS were disrespectful haha.. especially seeing as how the kid is 16 and Wanderlei is a grown beast. The kid IMO did great. He is only 16, looked like he was atleast 50pounds lighter and didnt say "**** this lol" after he got slapped around.

Also
Did those knees land to the kids chin?? i couldn't tell. Thats pretty brutal for a sparring session against a 16 year old lol.

Wanderlei seems like one of those guys that you dont wanna playfully wrestle with. Cuz if you manage to get a favorable position, he just gets mad and eats you alive.
