I was expecting a KO but not so fast… I feel bad for wand.

Bad night, boys. Love Wandy, eternal respect, but he went out QUICK. Those punches weren’t all that hard. That sucks.
What a depressing night of fights. I’m going to bed.

Fan88 Says, in 7-2-2011 at 23:31:44 from    

Right on Crippler!

Catquick802 Says, in 7-2-2011 at 23:34:14 from    

Yeah I agree, it’s time to retire. This “I’m gonna fight 10 more times” stuff is for the birds. It’s been a great run for Wandi, but it’s time for the rocking chair on the porch.

lander911 Says, in 7-2-2011 at 23:36:29 from    

Damn, I love Chris Leben and when I saw 50 seconds I was just hoping that if Silva got knocked out he wouldnt be out COLD…So good win, great fight for both guys because Silva went for it and Leben ate a few and landed some great shots from the clintche. If Bisping loses to Miller then Wandy should have a reitirement fight with The Count and end with a knock out win! Leben Vs. Sonnen is next!

hookersandblow Says, in 7-2-2011 at 23:37:36 from    

so sad to see silva lose to leben

Wandy has Liddell syndrome.

Machete Says, in 7-2-2011 at 23:37:46 from    

Dam, I kind of had a feeling this was going to happen. I know Wand hasn’t fought in a long time but he needs to retire and think about his health.

Leche Says, in 7-2-2011 at 23:37:57 from    

Face down, ass up. Damn.

buttholechit Says, in 7-2-2011 at 23:39:09 from    

it hurts so bad watching legends fall so hard…I agree continue teaching and stick to the gymn…Valeu Wanderlei voce sempre deu um show!

Thanks Bruno!!!, man I can’t believe I forgot about this card, it seemed like an awesome one…

McClinchey Says, in 7-2-2011 at 23:41:56 from    

i watched this on tv and just felt absolutly sick to my stomach after seeing this, its sad to see your hero go out like that.

Beast w/ 8 Limbs Says, in 7-2-2011 at 23:42:37 from    

poor wandy. he has a huge crack in his chin.

bigmoney Says, in 7-2-2011 at 23:43:09 from

Bruno: Watched it live on TV in Germany just before the prelims started. I will have it up sometime.

porksnorkle Says, in 7-2-2011 at 23:44:25 from    

Holy Crap. Mr Sonnen was right. War Leben!!

PitFighterZ Says, in 7-2-2011 at 23:45:40 from    

Yep, the chin is not there anymore. He got rocked with a relatively weak shot before getting the big one.

Derkderder Says, in 7-3-2011 at 00:02:03 from    

This is really depressing…

Savage Says, in 7-3-2011 at 00:05:46 from    

I think Rampage started the end of Wandy’s career this is the end. Thanks for being the inspiration for my fighter’s mentality when i step in the ring Wand. Much Love

TrapFit Says, in 7-3-2011 at 00:06:17 from    

Wandi went in there and rolled the dice, Chris has insane KO power, those were not “weak” punches, he gentically hits really hard. I have seen Wandi do this before too, he gets in the pocket lands a few and must think I have the t[ko] and BOOM he is done. Wandi will always be a legend/warrior but its not time to retire he has a few more in him, Chris is in his prime right now. You can’t run in on people like Leben PERIOD.

muhahaha Says, in 7-3-2011 at 00:11:48 from    

Wasn’t a suprise this match i already knew the end result i don’t like wanderlei after he beat up rampage i wished for his doom ever since.. but i have to admit hes a great fighter.. and shouldn’t go down like this poor wanderlei.. only if he had his chin back.

shocktime Says, in 7-3-2011 at 00:15:59 from    

That was funny. Leben was like oh I didn’t know we scraping zombie style already? Ok here we go Boom KO!

the faceless Says, in 7-3-2011 at 00:18:22 from    

Awesome career wand, but now you have gone to that dark cold place, where arlovski, liddell and crocop are

J_satan_666 Says, in 7-3-2011 at 00:23:13 from    

i feel for wandy

Maximumpain Says, in 7-3-2011 at 00:27:45 from    

Anyone who says those punches were weak wasn’t getting hit by em. Thanks for the memories Wand!

alvo69 Says, in 7-3-2011 at 00:31:03 from    

Uppercut uppercut uppercut OH F***.

phil615 Says, in 7-3-2011 at 00:40:29 from    

I fell asleep on the couch and now I need to catch the last two fights here. =(

I was sad when they announced this fight. Only one outcome would come of it. Please don’t fight until you’re 40 Wand. Just run your school. I know you have the need to compete, but please.

Uncle ruckus Says, in 7-3-2011 at 00:44:05 from

time to hang em up, wandy.

R.I.P Wanderlai

kill666 Says, in 7-3-2011 at 01:26:25 from    

i remember when Wanderlei used to use his Cross Arm guard Position and protect his chin with his elbow but it has been a long time since i actually see wandarlei use any type of guard. Wanderlei is a warrior and there is no doubt he was at one point the best fighter in the world but he is no even near his top level right now.

i dont think this loss have to do much of if wandarlei chin is weak nobody will be able to take that punishment and dont get knockout the problem is on wandarlei reflex and ability to adjust to the situation. he is just getting old for professional fighting.

War wandarlei!!

Niv Says, in 7-3-2011 at 01:54:04 from    

Sorry I completely disagree with anyone who thinks Wandy should stay and fight more.

He’s my all-time favourite fighter and the writing was on the wall was when he was still in Pride. I truly felt he should have retired after his back to back ko losses to Cro Cop and Dan Henderson. At that point he was already going one dimensional and had degraded from his all out punch, knee, kick style that had made him the Axe Murderer.

How sad that today he loses to guys like Chris Leben, the guy is not in his league but looks like a champ fighting this version of Wandy.

Time to hang em up once and for all, Wandy will go down as one of the greatest of all-time, it’s a shame he’s been a shadow of his former self since around 2006. It bugs me that most fans will only know him from his most recent UFC run, the guy who ruled Pride was a freaking scary monster, not this guy.

Wandy will always be the man, please hang them up dude!

Omgwtfbbqsauce Says, in 7-3-2011 at 02:17:37 from    

Did some dude really just say Leben’s punches weren’t that hard? Lay off the smoke bro…

chata Says, in 7-3-2011 at 02:44:38 from    

wanderlei, u the man for getting in there w out a chin. thx for all the savage ass fights!!

mmafan Says, in 7-3-2011 at 02:46:16 from    

Wanderlei was apparently such a terror when he ruled Pride, comes over to UFC and sucks, wonder if he was simply taking so many steroids in Japan and thats what was keeping him on top…hmmm must suck to be off the roids

boogerface1 Says, in 7-3-2011 at 02:57:10 from    

wasnt rampage that started the end of wands chin it was the cro cop fight. no chin left.

Chris Leben Says, in 7-3-2011 at 02:59:47 from

Angl Says, in 7-3-2011 at 03:22:23 from    

I think that first punch on back of the head did it the rest were not that hard he was ko all ready you will be allways remember wandi

paddedummy Says, in 7-3-2011 at 04:20:50 from    

This is what happens to guys with a “fighter’s mentality” instead of having a cerebral martial artist’s mind set. It says alot about most people that they love this flailing monkey with poor technique but hate on guy’s like GSP for not finishing his opponent every fight or getting himself ktfo while trying to! Leben will go out the same way when he fights a younger version of himself eventually. What technique does Silva really have to teach as a coach? On his fighter life reality show he gets his nose bloodied by no name chumps off the street who come in to tryout for his Wand fight team and one of them only had one arm for christ’s sake! Silva got lucky lecturing Sonnen about losing his teeth because Sonnen could easily f Silva up

chamilton Says, in 7-3-2011 at 04:30:53 from    

he looked like he did some cocaine after it started shooting out his nose when he was amped

ukfightfan Says, in 7-3-2011 at 06:18:09 from    

Someone please tell me, was that a sloppy clinch or a really effective way of countering? Because thouse uppercuts through the pipe worked awesome!

thaddiuslustre Says, in 7-3-2011 at 07:54:10 from    

Wand is a shell of his former self! OMG how quickly people forget the REAL “Axe Murderer” of yesteryear.

Sad say for the sport of MMA the day ufc & the little SCAM they promulgate called “unified rules” became the 800lbs gorilla, or the yardstick by which nearly all MMA is measured & assessed.

after the demise of PrideFC; Wand’s venture to ufc followed by his subsequent relocation to North America, all came with a very heavy price to bear. Prestigious & vaunted Brazilian schools & fight clubs(Chute Boxe & BTT) were virtually disbanded overnight due to fighter desertions & infighting, coupled with the decline of Japanese based MMA & the rise of the “reality” brand ufc.

someone here stated they felt sorry for what happened to Wand tonight? I’ve been feeling sorry for him for quite some time now! I feel sorry for the way in which he’s been duped & manipulated by the corporate aspect: shuckin’ & jivin’ at ufc’s or Vana white’s every request; to the point of dressing in a goofy cardigan with nerdy glasses mugging for the camera. I mean what the F***! was that supposed to be entertaining or funny?

it’s OK Wanderlei Silva; even though your in the twilight of your career, no one can ever take away what you were! you were a Champion & Grand Prix Champion. In what was & has been the toughest venue to date under the most complete & authentic to real MMA/ValeTudo rule set. PrideFC!

Khaos Says, in 7-3-2011 at 08:11:48 from    

You wouldve thought Wand would have learnt from fighting Rampage that you dont rush in against big punchers with solid chins… guess u cant teach an old dog new tricks.

zippewa Says, in 7-3-2011 at 08:50:59 from    

Pretty sure Vandy was out of it before the fight started.

Jay Ernteman Says, in 7-3-2011 at 09:08:24 from    

weak shots? hahahahahaha
Chin or no chin 3 uppers from chris in a row would be like 6 bottles of nyquil hitting you all at the same time.

yourmomsucks Says, in 7-3-2011 at 10:15:24 from    

poor wanderlei!

Nambo Says, in 7-3-2011 at 10:17:35 from    

geez…..Wandy is gonna have to change his nickname from “Axe Murderer” to “White Collar felon” if he keeps losing like this.

ImportMafia Says, in 7-3-2011 at 11:51:55 from    

Wandi, like Chuck, went balls to the wall and got caught doing so. It happens..

FEDOR=GOD-2 Says, in 7-3-2011 at 12:06:59 from    

He got caught by one of the hardest hitting ufc fighters besides Pat Barry and Kongo, WAR LEBEN, but please do the right thing and give Wandy some credit for coming right in the pocket and trying to trade.
Much respect to both fighters
Dont retire plz

yodude Says, in 7-3-2011 at 12:16:32 from    

wanderlei silva beats….wanderlei silva beaten….haha Goldberg is a moron. Almost as bad as him calling Matt Wiman Watt Miman during one of the broadcasts a few years back.

Savage Says, in 7-3-2011 at 13:30:50 from    


not sure if that comment was directed towards me but what I mean when I say “fighter’s mentality” is one where you become a different person in the cage. That doesnt necessarily mean stuck your chin in the air and throw as hard as you can (to me atleast) I can appreciate what both someone like Wandy does in the ring AND what GSP does in the ring. I simply meant that Wand is the perfect example of being a softy outside the cage and a savage inside, being able to flip a switch, that being a fighters mentality, getting in there to do your job and win that fight. HOW one wins the fight is entirely different (sort of like GSP’s style vs. Wand’s style).

Niv Says, in 7-3-2011 at 13:55:45 from    

paddedummy I agree with your point on GSP but totally disagree with your assessment of Wandy.

When he was on his game in Pride he used all aspects of his Muay Thai using his kness, kicks and punches. He has a black belt in BJJ but always reverted to the Chute Boxe style of Muay Thai.

He has skills in all aspects and definitely has what is needed to teach. His style was always exciting but as I said and I stand by that, he became one dimensional long before he came to the UFC this go around.

As for the other guys ignorant comments about steroids being what made him great, then please explain his decline with losses to Cro Cop and Henderson months apart to ko? He had a split decision win over Yoshida, a split decision win over Arona following a split decesion loss to him before that in 2005. He had slowed down tremendously as he was fighting a lot and was in too many wars in a short period of time.

He declined because of the way he fought, he needs to wake up and get out.

He will always be one of the all-time greats regardless of the apparent hate he still receives from some.

ibunn Says, in 7-3-2011 at 13:57:11 from    

Silva’s done, i don’t need to see him get KTFO again to be sure. So hopefully he gives it up on his own because the only way hes wining now is if he wears a helmet in the cage

OverHandGoodNight Says, in 7-3-2011 at 13:57:29 from    

Hard to watch this…

kid dynomite Says, in 7-3-2011 at 22:17:06 from    

wanderlei will learn from this loss, and come back even stronger.


Big Douche Says, in 7-4-2011 at 13:33:01 from    

Wanderlei Silva beats Wanderlei Silva! True.

AC Says, in 7-4-2011 at 23:46:12 from    

6 losses on the last 8 fights says it all.

That’s what u get for being a Dana whites bitch LMAO.

And thinking that i used to be ur number 1 fan…

filo561 Says, in 7-5-2011 at 17:54:37 from
