This is a pretty awesome fight, but if Stann keeps his cool Silva will find himself waking up on the canvas after eating a counter.

Wanderlei is getting laid out in this one and once again people will start to say he should retire. The Axe Murderer is a legend, but he has taken way too much damage, cant compete with the top guys anymore and is too big of a name to become a gatekeeper. Dont get me wrong, I enjoy watching him fight. He leaves everything in the cage. It's just that I dont want to see him hang around too long. I like when the legends go out close to the top.

Oh man I don't want this fight to happen. I like both guys and will hate too see what will probably happen. Wanderlei KO'd from Stann's power!!! It's MMA and anything can happen but I just don't see how Wanderlei can win at this point in his career. I'm hoping Wandy will hang it up soon I'd hate to see him hang on too long like Chuck did. After this fight maybe the UFC will give him an easier fight to go out swinging with a win!!!

It's a damn shame they put together a card like for fucking Fuel, so a whole 200,000 people will watch, while another couple hundred thou. watch it illegally.

Le is a great striker but Stann hits like a truck. The fact is, Wanderlei's card has been punched too many times. When he fights a slugger he goes down, like in the Leben fight. And I am a monstrous Wanderlei nuthugger.
