Cung Le . 1st rd. KO

Cung is too swift for Wandis pride style ........but if some how some way.... Wandi was to catch Cung with one of those caveman haymakers, ill be the first on my feet with a tear in my eye




This. I have an AV bet with jjeans, and I think I'm picking Le to win. Wandy winning by ko will only make it that much sweeter for me

Who has LE ever beat? Frank Shamrock a split with Scott Smith. Not really top fighters. Now granted Wandy is on the down side and wouldn't be shocked if he did get knocked out but I have to favor Wandy on the shear fact that Le has never fought anyone like him.



At this point, I don't think resumes mean a whole lot. Le is certainly capable of finishing Wandy (and IMO, likely will). In fact, at this point in Wandy's career, he's likely to drop when the vaseline is being rubbed on his face prior to entering the cage.



Seriously, though...I promised myself I'd never pick Wandy to win against another striker after Leben embarassed him. I'm sticking to my guns on this. I don't think it lasts a whole lot longer than the Leben fight did. I think Le stands for a bit before taking him down and pounding him out. Another brutal TKO loss for Wanderlei and his last fight inside the octagon.

Also 6-26-10 we are talking a year and a half since Cung has seen any action. I have to tak Wand.



Wandy's seen 27 seconds of action since February of 2010.



For what ever reason I feel Wand has been training Cung not so sure. I think I said it wouldn't shock me if Cung lost but I have never been too sold on Cung he just never fought anyone.

Cung's fighting in front of his home crowd in San Jose. I guarantee he's training.

wnadys chances to win...opening up with a flurry and getting the stoppage

les chances to win...picking wandy apart for 3 rounds, i see this fight going much similar to the the first smith fight, except i see le being more cautious...but thatsn thing though, scott smith has a shit load of heart, wandys heart has been in question for me for about 4 years now, he just doesnt seem like he wants it anymore, so i can never tell which wandy will show up, haha, which is kinda funny, who does that remind you of...bj penn perhaps

thats a common misconception, you cant base someones individual skill on who theyve fought and beatencung le could knock out wandy anyday, and then his next fight, get sloppy and lose to...lets say...john salter, anyone can beat anyone on any given night, and saying your not sold on someone because of hos lackluster opponents is retarded, i gaurentee youve heard of at least 6 of cungs 7 opponents before they foiught him, just because tony fryklund isnt anderson silvs, doesnt mean he isnt a a great win...and that is all for now haha

I should have saved my money for this card. This card is much easier for picks and wagers.

I'm pretty surprised by some of the comments in here. Since when does getting KOed by guys like Rampage and Leben mean you have a glass jaw?

I'm taking Cung, but I don't think this is nearly as big of a blowout as most of you are making it out to be. Cung isn't exactly the kind of striker who one-shots people like Rampage and Leben have been known to do very frequently, he grinds people down with a lot of unorthodox kicks from the outside and gets his finishes usually in the later rounds of the fight from a ton of accumulated damage.

Wandy went to war with Liddell and Franklin and absorbed a ton of damage, I don't think his chin is nearly as suspect as people are making it out to be.
