A lot of people like Wanderlei because he comes to entertain first, win second, but that's as moronic as me rooting for a baseball team who comes to hit the homerun first, and win second. It's a sport, not a movie and for me, a guy who wins AND dominates; Jon Jones, Anderson Silva, Chris Weidman, Fedor, prime Cro-Cop, Cain, Aldo, Barao is much more exciting than a guy who doesn't care about the win-loss column and just wants to put on a show and collect a paycheck.
I actually think Wand is one of the guys from the olden days that has done the best job of trying to adapt in the newer age.

Except he doesn't mix in takedowns, or incorporate diverse striking, or utilize leg kicks enough...

He's not a smart fighter. He's tough as shit, and fun to watch. But he's not a smart fighter.

I wasn't sure, but that's even better, Wanderlei has more time to hurt Sonnen and finish him.
