Warning: Don't Try to Act Tough While Sparring With Wanderlei Silva



CagePotato reader Stephen B. writes:

"Not sure who I should send this to, but I thought you would like to see a video from an MMA seminar I went to this past weekend in Charleston, WV. Wandy was in attendance and after demonstrating various techniques, he began sparring with individuals. This was all going pretty well, being that most people understood that he was an animal and respected that at any moment he could destroy their ability to operate their limbs. That is, until a young upstart at the age of 16 chose to show off in front of everyone. It turned out less than favorable for him...Enjoy."

That 16-year-old kid is lucky to be alive after disrespecting Master Silva with his insolent turning side kick. The ensuing bear-slap is pretty epic, and you gotta love how the entire class groans when the kid starts into his Royce Gracie-style heel-chops at the 0:37 mark. I think everyone there learned a valuable lesson at that seminar — when Wanderlei Silva asks you to spar with him, don't. A reverse angle of the video is after the jump.

Straight up disrespectful with that spinning back kick. Wandy slapped the bitch


He reminded me of Keith Jardine to be honest.

Erm Wandy couldn't even pass his guard?

Kid did ok considering who he was sparring with and how much smaller he was.

This. Don't really get what the big deal was anyway.

wand looked like he was putting about zero effort into that but still the kid did pretty good, got a little overconfident with that spinning back kick though lol

That bitch slap looked epic in the second video. Wand never went to break guard by the way.

It wasn't quite the less-teaching I was expecting, apart from the two stim palmers.

Posted it for the epic slap and if you watch the reverse angle you can see Wand slapping him when they are on the ground.

Thought it was funny and it's not like Wand was going all out to pass his guard and the kid was holding on for dear life. I don't think Wand was trying to make the kid look like a fool.

Wand is not 100 % right now. Still recovering from the injury.

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.

Fun trivia: In danish "kamp" means "match" or "fight". So Martin Kampmann really lives up to his name.
