Do not sleep on Wand, the man hits like a bus and it is no small task to take him down and hold him there. Chael hasn't shown any KO power in his career idk where you're going with that and I dont think Wand has ever been tapped out. Should be a competitive affair.

This is going to be bad for the UFC because it's bad for a sport to see such disparity of quality in a fight.
Sanchez vs Gilbert wasn't close.

This notion of Wand not having a chin anymore is sort of bullshit. The last three KO's he's suffered were Chris Leben uppercuts, a Rampage left hook and an H bomb from Hendo. All these guys are power punchers, those punches knock out a lot of people. He recently went toe to toe with Stann, who has very good power, survived and KO'd him shortly after. Go back even farther, a LHK from Cro Cop? No one not named mark hunt survives that either. So to assert that anyone can knock Wand out nowadays least of all a wrestler/grinder like Chael is simply ridiculous.

Sorry but i think every fighter in UFC is a top level fighter.
Dominated? He had dominant position for the first round and caused 0 damage. He started losing in the 2nd round cause he gassed trying to take Silva down but couldn't (lack of TRT).

Chael is either going to put a lopsided beatdown on Wand or submit him.

Wand doesn't win this. Sorry living-in-the-past-Wand-Pride-GP-Glory-Days Fanboys.

If Wand lands hard one time Chael will wilt, count on it.

If by lopsided beatdown you mean lay on him and wave his pillow fists at him then you may be right.

This fight is not relevant, ranking-wise or otherwise. It's a good move for TUF as it does nothing to lock up any weightclasses for any persiod of time and yet still builds hype.
It's just a fun fight that gets two rabid fanbases at each other's throats.
I'm with Wand. I still believe!
