Akiyama is unable to train.. he always gasses out after just 1 Round in every single fight he is in.

It's no accomplishemnt to sub somebody who is death tired laying in your guard. Everybody can submit that!


It doesn't mean that Leben is the better fighter. He is obviously not the better fighter even though he won and everyone who has seen the fight can tell that and must know that.



Wanderlai fought the best of the best until today. Just beat Bisping clearly and would have stopped him.

Leben is a brawler who relies on his chin and his chin only. Thats what I call a can.. somebody who just doesn't fit in the higher group of fighters.

And no, he doesn't belong in there with Wanderlai and Wandy is going to show that tonight.
You better be God damn sure you're not talking about me with that line.

This Leben hate is absolutely unfounded. Everyone knows he's a brawler. Everyone knows he drags people into bloody, and ugly fights. However the exact same description is used for Wanderlei Silva. He doesn't goad people into his style of fight. He gets in their teeth and swarms on them. The description of their styles are almost the same, the method of achieving victory is the same, the only difference is your self-serving bias.

I watched the fight with Akiyama, did you? Akiyama hit Leben over and over and still couldn't come close to putting him away. He finally gets Leben down and gets subbed. What kind of a Judoka gets subbed in less than 30 seconds? A shitty one. Yoshihiro Akiyama, one of the most overrated fighters in MMA.

As for this whole "he couldn't train" bullshit. That's exactly what it is, bullshit. If he couldn't train for the fight he shouldn't have taken the fight. Its that simple. Also, please link some article explaining that/why Akiyama wasn't able to train for the (W)Silva/Leben fight.

At any particular time, at least 90% of the people on here disagree with Cooper. Therefore, 90% of the people are wrong. Its flexible though. If you do agree with him in some other thread, then you are part of the blessed 10%: The knowers of truth. Deviating from the opinion of the Cooper and you will be swiftly engulfed in the 90% once again: Them what know nuffin' about nuffin'.

Its an interesting mechanic. It keeps Bob safe from all criticism and his ego intact, no matter how absurd the ramblings. He is indestructible. Quite impressive really.

I see, I hadn't noticed this before. It has prompted my creativity.

Leben is a zombie. Press forward mindlessly and go for brains.

Wandy has shown that he can be technical and does have quite a few tricks up his sleeve. Wandy is also the harder hitter of the two and has more weapons.

I will give Leben the chin advantage and thats just because Wandy has had a lot more damage in his day.

Leben is noticeably slower than Wandy's last two opponents with Bisping and Franklin. Wandy was able to connect often on both, drop both, and KO Bisping. Wandy will have a much easier time hitting a zombie. But can Chris really take what Wandy dishes out? I dont think so

Read my post correctly! I told you that without a gas tank, no matter how good you are.. your skills are gone!!

This is the same reason why a huge majority of people on here really believe that Jon Jones beat Shogun Rua that night and that he is the far better fighter because of course, he destroyed him.

People seem to know nothing, thats just my impression I'm sorry to disappoint.

If you don't know that Cardio is the most important part of a fighter, then you no nothing about fighting.


for the rest my post again..

It really seems to me that 90% of the people on here have no clue about this Sport.
Akiyama is unable to train.. he always gasses out after just 1 Round in every single fight he is in.

And no, he doesn't belong in there with Wanderlai and Wandy is going to show that tonight.



Leben is a stupid fighter who will never beat the upper end cause he sucks as a fighter!

Wanderlai is a Legend and a Ledendary fighter who beat other Legends because of the amazing skills he possesses.

Chael is the middleweight champion of the alternate universe where Brazil doesn't exist and thus can't create fighters to defeat him.
