I like Wandi as much as the next guy but come on guys role model? Shoving Rampage in Pride and at weigh ins does not show class.
I would bet alkot of money had Rampage not had all his legal issues he would have been showving back.
But if he did some dick DA could use that 2 seconds of footage to show he is naturally violent, thus a violent offender. Being a fighter dosen't make u that in the courts eyes but a recent video of you talking trash and then (as the courts would put it) physically assualting another fighter. They are not contracted to fight at the weigh-ins only during the fight itself.
it's sad but American Courts are like a crazy story. They focus on submision and misdirection.
Rampage is on a short leash
And on top of it they hate the hell out of each other. There has been AMPLE smack talk form Rampage in the past (watch thier pre-fight interviews in Pride) its just it finally got to Wandy.
Now if i remember correctly (and i might not) i don't remember Wandyu saying much smack talk in those fights.
I know if i was fighting someone that I KO'd bad twice i would want to do everything in my power to physically intimdate them.
Frank Mir said it best in TUF 8 when he said (along these lines) "That's awsome! You broke him mentally". It was that fight with the world next Napoleon (whatever his name was lol).
The push was a little extreme but i cannot think of ANYTHING he has done unprofessional besides the those 2 events...
