Elbows, KNEES!,kicks etc…dont try to out box your opponents for gods sake! that was never your game! Log in to Reply Brandyn September 27, 2011 Good to see Wand is pumped to get knocked out again. Log in to Reply neovvl September 27, 2011 wanderlei is hands down my fav fighter of all time, cung le is a awsome match up for him as well, cant wait Log in to Reply Bernardo September 27, 2011 This is a dream fight!! But poor Wandy been on a downward spiral and I don’t think he has what it takes to beat Cung. Cung is so underrated its sad. He has awesome Wrestling, TKD, San Shou, Boxing, Muay Thai and now BJJ!! He is as complete as JBJ. But Wandy does posess KO power and if he learns to box properly he will have a punchers chance and his future will look alot brighter. But I have to go with Cung on this one because he will throw Wandy around like a rag doll, definitely out strike him, and if it goes to the ground I heard Cung was dangerous with his wrestling and BJJ! Cung by TKO or submission!! Log in to Reply Bernardo September 27, 2011 Bruno, who are you liking for this fight? Bruno: Picking Wand. I hate to see this as the first fight for Le. Log in to Reply Pope September 27, 2011 It is pretty obvious that Wandy has been declining physically during the past 3 years or so, but it also seems that his technique has declined (not saying he was ever a really technical fighter though). He barely kicks or uses his once devastating clinch. Although He showed some good technique against bisping, but his slow technical style that he used against bisping won’t work against le. He has to brawl with him, but the problem is he doesnt have the speed and recovery to use his old style effectively. I think his best shot is in the clinch, but last time he used his clinch he got knocked out. I honestly hope wandy gets injured before the fight and they give him a japanese grappler scrub that he can knock out without him having to worry about being KOed. Then PLEASE retire. It is hard for me to even be a fan of Wandy now b/c he is such a shell of his former self. He is making me forget what an animal he used to be.

Log in to Reply marvelous mad madam mim September 27, 2011 damn i feel sorry for wandy. belfort had a punchers chance against Cung but wandy has zero chance. cung is no joke. cung vs anderson somtime in 2012 Log in to Reply Reallynow? September 27, 2011 Wandy is capable of beating Cung. Cung is capable of beating Anderson. It can be done, but will it? Log in to Reply Jake September 27, 2011 I don’t think cung le is all he’s hyped up to be. He barely has any fights and he hasn’t fought anyone good except Frank Shamrock, and frank shamrock is part of the old age of mma, so i don’t even know if he counts either. I’m giving this fight to Wandy Log in to Reply PitfighterZ September 27, 2011 This is both a great and a sad fight. It’s a good test for Le in the UFC, but it means that Wandy might be fighting his last fight if he loses. If he wins, he will have beaten a guy who is older than he is, which means he will keep as a gatekeeper until the next fight. However, two legends clashing is always exciting. Very mixed feelings. Log in to Reply Corey September 28, 2011 Cung le hasn’t fought anyone notable in the mma world (except frank shamrock) and hasn’t fought in over a year. Wandy is a shell of his former self, chin’s gone, speeds gone, aggressiveness gone. Honestly.. this fight does nothing for me. Either cung le is going to ko wandy with his kung fu kicks, or wandy is going to try to box cung le and this will be more of a dance contest than a brawl. Thats my expectation. I hope wandy comes in lookin for the clinch and the knees… but when was the last time he did? Log in to Reply nocomeoahu September 28, 2011 Thought vitor was fighting cung le..?im thinking wand will try and take Le down.Damn i was hope for a stand up bralw.still a sick match up though.no favorties in this match im 50/50 on this.
