More from the same day, I think this kid did better.

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.
He's only 16 isn't really something that matters to Wand if I had to guess, Wand's been fighting since before that and probably figured if the kid was old enough to kick him in the gut he was old enough to get hit.

But props to the kid, chances are if Wand came forward at me like that I would have Kalib Starnesed it.

Wasn't disrespectful. Just some guy writing an article to stir up some controversy. You could tell they were both enjoying themselves.

Well obviously it didnt matter to Wanderlei lol. Which is cool.. im sure the kid is glad Wand brought the fight to him (to a certain degree ofcourse). I doubt Wanderlei would have done that if he thought the Kid just plain sucks. That kid looks like he is taking MMA seriously and i wouldnt be surprised if he is trying to get some fights in a couple of years. So the experience with Wanderlei is very beneficial im sure.

haha i have no idea how people can find a way to hate on anyone in that video, it was a sparring match and the kid showed some skill so wandy took it up a notch on him. that's what training is about!

Dear lord Wandy looks vicious. I'd rather walk around downtown in the Borat sling speedo for an hour than go for 20 seconds with him.

I love how he beat the kid up just enough to humble him in front of everyone. I'm a real late Wanderlei fan. He's the shiz!

you don't learn anything sparring with someone who is going too easy on you. they were both fine, wand was using open hand strikes, the kid initiated the TD and wandy just reversed it, really i think the kid probably did more damage with the kicks than anything else in the fight.

If I had attended a seminar I'd love to have been in that kid's position and I would be disappointed if Wandy hadn't responded with a little bit of sauce when I threw those kicks.

lol if he "went for it" then why did he slap the kid? If he actually lost control he would have decked the kid. The entire time Wandy was going maybe 25% in terms of power in his strikes and as mentioned the first were not even closed fist!

He was simply sparring and as said right above if you don't get pushed you wont learn anything.

Exactly! And he let the kid gain some confidence, too! The kid was just in there with a real mma fighter. I bet he is more motivated than ever. If Wandy just got in there and refused to engage the kid would feel shafted I think.
