maybe YOU should browse sherdog more selectively i would argue that knowing (and grokking) the history of mma is more important than forum keyboard warrior sher-drama. then again, i'm very susceptible to the sher-drama myself so wtf do i know.

cheers.
I get on Sherdog, sift through titles on 1st page, click some that interest me. I have seen many KH vs Marcelo threads. No KH knocking Wandy out threads. It's not that I should do anything, since I'm not complaining saying "This thread again..". It's that some of YOU guys should put down the mouse lol.

maybe.

depends on what you want i suppose. i originally came to sherdog to learn more about the sport. but that was back in '02 or so, and even then i had a lot to learn about the previous 10 years. so i did.

somewhere along the way people started coming here for other reasons. or maybe they always did, i dunno.

so how does one learn the history? i actually got a lot of knowledge from this forum. but not always from page 1.

i'm sure you get out of it exactly what you want. but i would still argue that not knowing the history == not having modern context. not just with mma either.

regardless, i'm glad TS finally got his answer. and you finally heard this story. have a good week, sir.

Exactly this. In all honesty, the only story you need to hear to make a judgement on this, is Krazy Horse's.

Knocking out 10 people in a room by himself, bruce lee side kicking everyone, ninja flipping out the front door, his story changes multiple times from being alone by himself to having a friend there who helped him out, apparently 1 punched Wand out cold with bare knuckles and there isn't even a slight mark on Wands face afterwards....

Literally even KH's friends are hysterically laughing out loud as he's telling this story. I've heard more legit stuff in the 3rd grade.

That's literally the only evidence for that view? "Wand won't talk about it"?
He also won't talk about the well known story of him KO'ing Shogun for the puppy.
It's common courtesy and tactfulness. Go ask him about old training stories. He won't answer, I've tried.

It gets posted once every 3 months, that's all, and everytime its the same conversation people have about it. Its as famous of an mma story as tito and lee murray

He did talk about it on the voice with MS. Kinda hard to understand if I remember correctly.

I dont think he did, but Wand would go on after that night to be KO'd twice (After Arona and Hunt)

Seems like I saw a video where Wandy was asked, and he just grinned. Didn't confirm, but sure didn't deny either.
