Kind of a strange thread considering Wandy is the favourite in this fight

Huh? On this site it's 80/20 in Wandys favor.

I don't think it has to do with their records (which igor's is impressive as well) as much as it does their particular styles.

Its kind of a bad match up for Wandy.

Still, Igor hasn't fought in over a year....

Igor, 1st rnd KO!

I say Wand by decision or submission. If submission, probably an armbar from the bottom.

huckit for once i agree with you, most people on here (going by comments) say that igor is going to win, but if you go to mmaforum.com it's all wand.

Personaly I don't care who the favorite is in this fight. All I want to see is Wandy to shut all those who thought he was done up. I promise you we will get to seet that intensity we're all used to seeing.

I'm calling Igor. If all things were equal, I'd give it to Wandy via decision or TKO, but all is not equal. Igor is coming in completely fresh and win a new dimension to his fight game, as hes supposedly been training ground fighting in his down time. Wandy is coming in off of two brutal Kos, the loss of his title, and just fought six weeks ago. He was also sick during that time. If Wandy was taking on a lesser opponent, I'd look past that, but this fight would be tough for Wandy if he was going in fresh.

Me personally just like Igor and have been wanting to see him back in action for a while, so I'll pull for him... Even if he is fighting Wandy (one of my other all-time favs)

I don't see why anyone would say it will be an easy fight for either man, it'll be a war... But IMO, Igor's percise punching vs Wandy's wild brawl will end up with a KO for the Ukraine Freight Train...

Man I wish I could have seen this fight in 04 or thereabouts...

I think Wandy will lose because he took this fight on 3 days notice.....

I agree, it will be a war. I think Wandy has more motivation to win, but Igor has huge knockout power. You got to respect Wandy for not fighting a can even though it may have been a better career move.

Arg, I would have picked Igor if he has not been inactive for so long. I don't care how much training you do, sparring with someone is different from fighting with someone.

I suspect Wanderlei to be hungry after his two KO loses and is looking to redeem himself with a KO finish.
