I think Wanderlei will win this just by being the better brawler and better at delivering punches crisply.

I think both now have deteriorated chins and the possibility of stoppage is very high , Leben has always relied on his heart but Bisping really did show his flaws as did Anderson counter punching works extremely well and staying behind a jab is also very effective against him.

I can see Wanderlei throwing alot of counter hooks and overhands against Leben as he comes lunging in.



The Gif above really does show how bad Leben is at striking and how a simple duck and counter can easily beat him.

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back

I am excited for Condit/Kim but not really for this fight. I am sure I will enjoy it as it is happening but this is going to be Garcia/KZ from a skills standpoint so it doesn't really leave much to analyze and contemplate heading in. Wandy doesn't have that shine about him like he used to that guys like Bones, Aldo, and Andy have right now where I am anxious for the fight no matter what.

I wanted to use this thread as a gauge for vBookie.. let it sink in a bit and went for Wanderlei earlier today, not 100% convinced though.

Nice Wuk Ariel

I have so much love for both men, but Wandy needs it more at this point. Chris is still young so ill be pulling for a good old fashioned Axe Murdering!

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben

Since when is Wandy's chin broke? He got KOd by Rampage, other than that he's taken punches from Hendo, Franklin and Liddell and kept going. Rampage would KO anyone if he landed like he did on Wandy.

well not so much hendo but I think he can take a leben punch no problem.

Honestly he's never been the same since those back to back KO's from Hendo and Cro cop. But he took some good shots off of chocolate Al.

I think the shadow of the axe murderer can beat Leben.
