Awesome fight! I don’t wanna throw out any spoilers but let’s just say I disagree with Joe Rogan.

Would love to see Vanderlei rematch belfort… Damn good fight for wandy…. Le just needs to stay active… he’ll be back.

ericsson Says, in 11-19-2011 at 23:49:16 from

Two Thumbs Up to you sir!

Bruno you are a God send man! thanks

I want to see more Cung Lee, the dude can fight!

aznboy918 Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:01:41 from    

i predicted silva would ko cung, cung should have taken silva down and pound him,stand up is not a right game plan for cung when fight with silva, if cung kept distance and kept kicking silva, he would win the fight by points, but u know, when cung goes in the cage, he tries his best to entertain the crowd by KO, or SUbmission, not by points, give credit for these two old fighters,peace out

kidfrosty Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:03:20 from    

Awesome Battle. Joe was fos. I think if the ref hadn’t stopped it, Cung Lee would have bled-out.LOL

KungFuLowKick Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:03:35 from    

Bad stopages all night.I don’ tknow if it was the same ref that let Brown get choked out 10 seconds.But it was just a matter of time.Cung looked really flabby and out of shape.I doubt he’s been training as hard as Wanderlei for that fight.Maybe making so many movies didn’t helped his MMA how odd…

roninnick72 Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:04:05 from    

Time Warp!! Was looking for a soccer kick! lol! Nice freakin job Vandy…BOJA!

jimmy Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:05:37 from    

“Drop down in weight”. Le is not taking MMA seriously.

He has more movies than fights. F-That. I am so happy for V, he has entertained use for 12-15 yrs, while Le is make movie straight to Beta. YEs, bitches, Beta, not even DVD.

Dr steel Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:07:20 from    

Cung was done!

sins4given Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:13:52 from    

Great job Wande. Cung is paying the price for trying to go hollywood: Poor Cardio, but not let’s see if he can fix the problem before the next fight. I didn’t know he had a wrestling background.

gsun Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:18:40 from    

Wow, classic Silva.

Really? Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:28:04 from    

Stopped the fight to early. Le was still holding on, and was working for a single leg. Different ref would have let the action go on. That said, good to see Wand like that.

oaklandblackouts Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:28:58 from    

maybe it was early and maybe not. but even if it was early it was only a matter of time for cung to get handled. cung landed some good shots here and there but overall looked out of shape. plus vand was on top of his game today.

Pocker Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:29:19 from    

I have watched every single ufc event, and I can honestly say that this is the best one ever imo.

jonny Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:32:22 from    

that was not the real cung le…god damn …look at his old san shou fights und strikeforce fights and then on this one…
stiff , slow…what the hell….

SEAN_VANCE Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:34:54 from    

WOW, Wand jsut exploded like I havent seen in ages! Feel bad for Cung, hes a cool dude, but u gotta love Wandy.

vista Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:41:11 from    

Isn’t it it obvious to anyone else? Doesn’t anyone who follows the sport notice that Wand looked extremely cut, with very low body fat? In ALL of his ufc fights he never looked like he did tonight, only back in Pride. I honestly think he juiced. If he did, i feel bad for Cung.I think he was afraid of retirement, if you ask me. I think cheaters are piece of shits.

USMCKiller Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:47:17 from    

Ummm, no that was not an early stoppage. Cung Le was spent.

d Says, in 11-20-2011 at 00:52:14 from    

I agreed with Joe at first but when I saw the condition Cung looked like I say it was a good stoppage.

drewblood Says, in 11-20-2011 at 01:07:20 from    

totally disagree with Rogan…. he wasn’t going for a single he was face down on the canvas with his armed draped up over the leg. sweet vintage performance.

headslap Says, in 11-20-2011 at 01:12:07 from    

Bruno — you are the man. Awesome fight. Thank you!

luis el monstruo Says, in 11-20-2011 at 02:01:46 from    

I Have to admit that tonight Wanderlei brought me into tears. I would love to see him fight Tito Ortiz, get the win and retire. If he call it quits after this one, I´ll be very happy. WAR WANDY!

Musclefixer Says, in 11-20-2011 at 02:11:59 from    

Wow, Kung’s kicks looked on point in the first round, but Wandy got his range, and then POW, solid punches, along with the knees.
Looking at the stoppage from the last angle, looked like all those hammer fists were to the back of the head. Anyway, it was only a matter of time. Kung isn’t knows for his ground game.
Thanks Bruno, you are The Man!

luis el monstruo Says, in 11-20-2011 at 02:20:03 from    

there´s nothing that gives me more pleasure than listening to Rogan´s nuthugging rants and then watching his fighter fall!

JiuJitsuWarrior Says, in 11-20-2011 at 02:22:33 from    

I watched Cung Le’s interiew on Comcast Sports Channel, and he’s was kind of a prick in the pre-fight interview, cocky and arragent for sure, so Big ups to Wandy for knocking him in his mouth and off his feet, San Jose can keep’em cause he’s not ready for the big dogs in the UFC..!!

bobbo Says, in 11-20-2011 at 02:39:09 from    

Cung Le is entertaining as all hell..always has been. Great Matchup to put him against Silva. Any normal MMA fighter would use their wrestling against Le and handle him easily.

I’d love to see drop to 170, he is carrying alot of weight around his mid section. If Le’s training partner Anthony Johnson can drop 40 lbs…Le can do it too. I’d like to see Le fight a few more times in the UFC against guys who arent wrestlers.

pitbull1779 Says, in 11-20-2011 at 02:43:32 from    

I agree with joe on this.. He was hurt but with only a few seconds left in the round and le was still grabing a leg and defending himself.. BAD BAD CALL!

Bernardo Says, in 11-20-2011 at 02:47:24 from    

Yes Vista, Wandy was ripped!! Almost hard to believe but we will find out sooner or later. He probably said what do I have to lose, if I lose I have to leave the UFC but if I win Heyyyyyyyy!! Cung didn’t look in good shape and we already knew his chin was questionable. I was surprised Wandy kept his composure when he got rocked. Juice or no juice Wandy was reliving his Pride days in that ring. Just look how much he was doing his wrist twist and then how he put his old MT Clinch to work again. War Wandy bc you were suppose to lose!!!

Yomommamoto Norifumi Says, in 11-20-2011 at 03:26:14 from    

I think back in the day Wanderlei juiced if anything.

Def. His shoulders, arms, upper body, torso – everything – were massive.

Now he’s clean and stripped to the bone, natural, trying to fight out his last glory days legit, that’s my impression.

I also thought it was pretty close and the ref may have jumped the gun because the first 3 or 4 of those Axe Murderer fists were to the back of Cung’s head.

I guess everyone’s so desensitized to them nowadays.

Yomommamoto Norifumi Says, in 11-20-2011 at 03:28:04 from    

And I therefore agree with Joe.

It was a bad stoppage even tho Cung was fried.

I think Cung’ flabby condition to begin with was bad!

bcuz Says, in 11-20-2011 at 03:36:45 from    

JOE ROGAN is a jackass give silva the credit cung li started moving strait back when he started gasing and got finish all those knees and punches could have had the fight stoped before they hit the ground

mmajunkyrat Says, in 11-20-2011 at 04:02:36 from    

hope he passes the piss test.

sidemount Says, in 11-20-2011 at 04:52:43 from    

I think Wand was juiced before in Pride, just look at the size he had…

now I don’t think he does it anymore, he is not as big as before.

I love Cung kicks, but he needs to learn to box, or at least to handle close distance.

ness2k Says, in 11-20-2011 at 05:27:06 from    

I Effing called it!!!!!!!! Eff you if you ever said Wand is done. In ur ugly face!

dr gru Says, in 11-20-2011 at 05:41:23 from    

UR WACK VISTA… juiced? really…?

facephucke Says, in 11-20-2011 at 05:59:46 from    

wow, I cant take credit for Wanderleis win but i said he needed through more combos like he did in pride! and here it is!! yes, so awesome seeing a long deserved W from W himself…F*** yeah!

gotBooched Says, in 11-20-2011 at 06:15:10 from    

@vista good thing nobody did ask you. what a ridiculous post. of course he’s cut….he’s fighting at 185 instead of 205+….he’s weighed as much as 230 before.

juiced…you’re out of your mind.

ruddo293 Says, in 11-20-2011 at 06:32:06 from    

Wandy cheating? Looking ripped maybe because he’s fighting at 185lbs… i’ve always thought wandy was ripped, but i might be wrong. He looked good… Cung just needs to be more consistent with fighting basically. His greatest victory to date was frank shamrock…. his loss to scott smith came after a long lay off. In the rematch he got his revenge. Wandy didn’t get lucky with this win… he prepared and fought the right game plan. Would love to see Wandy vs. Belfort rematch… Would be epic!!

wow Says, in 11-20-2011 at 07:31:44 from    


You’re a f****** idiot, he fought at 205 in PRIDE and ever since he dropped to 185 he has looked really cut in all of his fights. Are you one of those morons that thinks just because someone is cut they roided? Get the F*** out of here.

wow Says, in 11-20-2011 at 07:32:36 from    

Cung on the other hand looked like a fat piece of s***, he was breathing thru his mouth in the first minute.

PitfighterZ Says, in 11-20-2011 at 08:34:06 from    

Wanderley did what he needed to do. Be calm and fight smart. It also shows that Cordeiro is really a great trainer. You can see that the kicks, although not as plenty as I think he should have used, took Le out of his game, as did the elbows.
@vista: maybe the fact that he went back to Cordeiro and really trained his ass off might have something to do with it? He took Leben too lightly and he is afraid for his job and his career with everyone telling him to retire. I think he just went the extra mile with his training. Simple changes in your training process usually gives you huge changes in results. No need for baseless accusations.

Twana Says, in 11-20-2011 at 08:46:49 from    

this joe rogan guy needs to go and start commentating for those fighting in a back alley of a building.

After each fight, both winner and loser should kick him in the mouth and F*** him up…Hopefully to teach him how to comentate.

yourmomsucks Says, in 11-20-2011 at 09:32:03 from    

Don’t get it twisted. Wanderlei won, but he looked terrible and slow as hell. Good thing he was fighting a bloated, old B movie actor. Maybe he should fight Steven Seagal next.

gunnyhighway99 Says, in 11-20-2011 at 09:42:06 from    

Nice win for Wandy. I think that Le’s slow pace suited Wandy perfectly. Good luck with the next fight when your opponent turns the heat up Wandy!!

Licks72 Says, in 11-20-2011 at 09:55:29 from    

Great to see Wandy wrecking guys instead of getting wrecked.I think that was a perfect stoppage.Cung Le could barely stay on the stool.His face was smashed.Great job by the ref.Rogan needs to learn how to be a professional commentator instead of a loud mouth fan. Jumping on the referees without making sure he is wrong is counter productive.

tobes Says, in 11-20-2011 at 10:51:09 from    

@ Bernardo – if you can watch that fight and say that Cung Le’s chin is questionable, I question your sanity. Almost any other person would have been face down after half of those punches and knees. Cung was done for sure, but he has a tremendous chin. Look at the size of his neck. Consider the damage he took without going out cold completely. I RFALLY hope Wanderlei didn’t juice because that would suck. He didn’t look juiced to me. He looked ripped because I think he’s been eating right and he also looks small for MW. I don’t think he cut much weight. very entertaining fight

Danby Says, in 11-20-2011 at 11:26:07 from    

Heh it was nice to see Wanderlei being more strategic. I think if it was any other normal figher wanderlei would have lost though. Joe Rogan said it right, ‘who goes for a wheel kick when the guy is hurt’

Any other fighter would have just punched silva until he was unconcious instead of going for rediculasly flashy kicks.

Part of the reason thai fighters tend to get beat by euro fighters more. They kick WAY too much when a punch would be more effective.

casyboy Says, in 11-20-2011 at 13:08:35 from    

Cunge needs to take mma more seriously, go down to 170 and own that division, way to talented to put focus on hocus pocus[movies].. he can do that later in life… its a shame if he don’t train!

Reallynow? Says, in 11-20-2011 at 13:09:42 from    

If the ref sees that you’re taking too much devastating damage, you’re going to get called on. His face was becoming raw meat. His nose obviously broken. He was getting hammered. And shut up about calling steriod use just because someone THAT MANY YEARS AGO was bigger in size. He fought at a higher weight you casual C***. When you see someone bigger, most of the time we don’t realize how long it’s been since we last seen them, but we are real quick to say s*** on the spot. Shut up and do something with yourself, like stop eating so much. Corpulent a*******.

snype6969 Says, in 11-20-2011 at 15:21:29 from    

to all u sayin wands on roids cuz he looks ripped. lmfao. if u were an actual fan of the sport u would know he fought at 205 in pride the whole time!!! and part of when he came back to ufc. he moved down in weight because guys at 205 in ufc are waaaay bigger. the middle weight division in pride was 205. middle weight in ufc is 185. imagine the weight cut. wand prolly walks around at well over 200. so u cut 20+lbs and see how ripped u look. not to mention he was ripped at 205. shiat!

vachy Says, in 11-20-2011 at 17:34:44 from    

good video player!! and wanderlei´s killer knee :))

Dsrren Says, in 11-20-2011 at 17:41:01 from    

YES,,NO DOUGHT,,That was not the real Cung Le..But that wasnt the wandy of the pride day’s eather. Cung le has won lost’s of fights.Cung le is really past his prime.

Dsrren Says, in 11-20-2011 at 17:54:14 from    

Cung le showed his age in this fight.He was really slow.Good fight thoe.

Tempted Says, in 11-20-2011 at 17:55:32 from    

I think Rogan is wrong. Cung’s nose was destroyed, he couldn’t breath and was bleeding too much to allow him to continue. I rarely say this, but Rogan was wrong and the ref was right in that call. He was clearly finished after the fight was over, never got up. I love Le, best kicks in MMA. He broke Frank Shamrock’s arm with a kick. Hope to see him in the cage again, and against someone like Stann. Wandi was great but as much as I hate A. Silva I think he would KO Wandi quick. Either way, I’m waiting to watch that fight. Maybe even Sonnen vs Wandi.

mscash Says, in 11-20-2011 at 18:30:30 from    

I like to think of Wandy kneeing Rampage in the damn face and leaving his ass hanging over the last rope KTFO!

I like to think of Shogun soccer kicking Rampage into the corner too …

cloudst Says, in 11-20-2011 at 18:40:51 from    

late stoppage

*troll face* :D

john Says, in 11-20-2011 at 19:54:56 from    

Cung needs to work on his boxing. He seems so stiff when forced to use his hands.

All in all, probably his best performance even tho he lost against a tough guy

Joseph Says, in 11-20-2011 at 20:28:07 from    

I’m not making excuses for Cung Le but the bottom line is that he came to the fight out of shape. I mean look at his gut! It’s no wonder he wore himself out using Silva as a punching bag and then got overwhelmed considering the punching power and conditioning of the Axe Murderer. This is good as it will guarantee Silva another fight or 2 but I’m looking forward to seeing Cung Le fight again too if he decides to take a break from movies and dedicate himself to MMA fully.

ymbsnakeeye Says, in 11-20-2011 at 20:52:41 from    

Finally Cung Le fought someone real and he got completely destroyed. I called this fight in favor of wanderlei but damn I didn’t think he was going to beat him this bad.

FailSonnen Says, in 11-20-2011 at 22:13:18 from    

Cung is basically a natural 170 pounder vs a natural 205 pounder. So bloated vs shredded.

Also Cung shot for Wandy’s left leg at the end but it was more of like “let me get away from these strikes” more than like a significant takedown attempt.

Still….when you see how the let Shogun keep going it kinda makes you wonder…

FedorFailsAgain Says, in 11-21-2011 at 00:24:37 from    

Would Joe the drug addict Rogan shut the F*** up already, I’m a huuuuuge Cung le fan but he came to this fight looking like flabby s***, too damn tentative and was taking too much of a beat down for his own good. The fight was NOT stopped too quick Rogan you f***** moron. Cung Le didn’t take old man Silva seriously and paid the price. Ring rust is also a major factor.

Bernardo Says, in 11-21-2011 at 01:38:31 from    

@tobes didn’t you see when Cung got KO by Scott Smith? Thats what I was referring to. But yes he did take some vicious knees and punches so that kind of nullifies that.

Did you guys watch Wandy’s training session with the Spider? The Spider was working on elbows with Wandy and Wandy put them to work in this fight!!

bigbadman Says, in 11-21-2011 at 06:29:20 from    

Rogan doesn’t know what he’s talking about! That fight was stopped at exactly the right moment! It’s a shame that whenever anybody watches this great fight in the future the first thing their always gonna here after the fight finishes is “That was a bad stoppage”. Which slightly ruins his victory.
Some people actually hang on every word Rogan says, which is a shame because he talks so much s***

tone Says, in 11-21-2011 at 10:04:03 from    

Joe Rogan needs to tap out of his position as commentator.

bigtigger Says, in 11-21-2011 at 12:09:57 from    

Look at Cung’s nose all crushed in, good thing it was stopped when it was or he may not have a nose left. Great fight!!!!

cowfy Says, in 11-21-2011 at 16:18:29 from    

nose? can you say mashed potato?

drunkmonk Says, in 11-21-2011 at 17:10:02 from    

shiit stoppage imo

hardnox Says, in 11-21-2011 at 18:27:16 from    

That was a terrible stop of the fight. Le was holding on and Wanderlei was hitting him in the back of the head!!

John Boss Says, in 11-22-2011 at 09:42:43 from    

SIlva rocks, what a fight!
and you, Joe Rogan, saying it was a bad stopage. you sound like a douche pal… a whinner with bad habits by constently critisizing referees.

Meltface Says, in 11-22-2011 at 13:15:59 from    

As a person Wanderlei Silva is amazing gotta love the passion he brings and the love for the sport he has glad to see the monster and them Knees come out again WAR SILVA !!!
