Wanderlei represents everything that is good about mma, a exciting fighter, a great martial artist, and an even better human being. I am in two minds about silva retiring.This man has been in so many epic wars he just has nothing left to prove and it makes me sad when he gets hurt.

Hey Bruno!… Not sure if it’s my age, or the fact that I’ve been in and around MMA for more than a decade. But I really can’t read the comments any more. It’s all “he sucks, he’s gay, he’s fake, F*** him”, and wishing fighters either die or get really hurt in the ring…. I guess what I’m asking is, did I change or did the MMA fans change? Merry Christmas Bruno!

Bruno: Thinking of stopping fighter bashing in posts altogether this coming year.

gt03, i think thats good and bad,
it may be annoying sifting through the bashing posts, but it’s good knowing we have younger people getting into the sport

@Gt03Champp – The sport is much more mainstream now. More fans = more douche bags. Same thing happened with comic books and hip-hop music.
I find it irritating the most when it’s someone I see post on here all the time, writing some dumb s#it that no one cares about or believes. Why waste your and our time.

Wanderlei Silva is a legend. This whole “can” jargon has got to go. In MMA, anyone can win in any fashion. Calling Matt Serra a “can” didn’t stop him from beating GSP, did it? Elvis Shembre from beating Sakuraba? Saku from beating Vitor? See the point. Love the sport, love the fighters, and it all starts with loving yourself. ;)

@Gt03champp Agreed.

@ericcson…You must be a bitter child or a bored troll…probably both!! Wanderlei was one of the most ferocious fighters in the Pride days..his fights with Rampage and Cro Cop were epic.I am still a fan of his > Wandy your a true warrior.

@gt03champp thankyou sir for mentioning that, the negative ignorant fans are a bother. Wanderlei is an animal win or lose

ericsson Says, in 12-22-2012 at 15:31:19 from    

the majority of his fights in Japan were against japanese tomato cans
the Majority OK not all……. read and look at his record, 14 or 15 of his wins in pride vs japanese !!! now are you ready morons 11 fights in the UFC and 7 defeat the truth hurts ass holes right…

Love Wand his Old School fights like a Lion.

But Stan is far younger and fresher and he hits way too hard for Wand to take even one shot nowadays.

I got Ca$h on Stan.

Comic books? … Idiot

icolater Says, in 12-22-2012 at 20:11:27 from    

I love mma, to watch a sport grow so rapidly so quickly is super cool, and its all thanks to guys like wand who put on a good show and entertain the crowds, fighters these days are to cautious and boring in ther approach and the sport will suffer. Please stop crappy elbows from top position so wrestlers cant bore out a win with small elbow shots, they will then have to creat space for punches giving the guy on the bottom position a better sub or sweep chances

MangyMongoose Says, in 12-22-2012 at 20:24:36 from    

That’s tough Bruno, because if a fighter has a s*** fight ppl will want to comment on how shitty he was.

Bruno: Talking about how crappy a fight someone had and fighter bashing are two different things. You can still talk about a bad performances. You just shouldn’t call him a f** or a C***.

JO Says, in 12-23-2012 at 01:19:44 from    

The comments in MMA sites are no worse now than pre-Bonner/Griffin. They have always been annoying.

greengiant Says, in 12-23-2012 at 08:29:28 from    

I always go for wand and hope he can catch stan some how.Or at least get the decision.

greengiant Says, in 12-23-2012 at 08:30:13 from    

Its weird but wand is very smart and i think he is getting better for the ufc rules,he needed time to figure it out.

Dover-foxcroft Says, in 12-23-2012 at 11:21:29 from    

No one who beat Wandy in ufc would have beaten him five years prior.

JoeS Says, in 12-23-2012 at 22:05:27 from    

A shame that Wandy was brutally KOed by Cro Cop and Hendo at the end of Pride. Would have loved to have seen his chin, along with the technique and ferocity he still has, to have gone on a run in the UFC. A legend nonetheless that I’ll always be cheering for.

def Says, in 12-24-2012 at 10:20:00 from    

Wand is an all time great and if you don’t respect his fights from Pride then you don’t know s*** from shynola

bareknuckles Says, in 12-24-2012 at 15:54:39 from    

I agree with Gt03champp…. I don’t comment half the time because it’s all ignorant comments. It’s nice to read posts where people have intelligent feedback of the sport and fighters.

bruno i would post way more if you stopped fighter bashing in posts.
