so you don't think wand had some "help" in pride, a whole lot of it? lol

except for vitor's overly large (hendo) and slow stage of fighting and MAYBE his cage rage stint, vitor's straight punches, speed and boxing was and would have been a bad match up for wand, imo. i'm a big fan of both though.

They are both oddly reinvigorated in their mid-30s and still clobbering dudes in the head for a living so now would be a fantastic time in terms of skill level still being there but Vitor is in title contention at 185 while Wand is happy at 205.

I'm a huge fan of both and it would be guaranteed fireworks ( ) but I'm okay if they never fight. There are plenty other big matchups for them both.

When Belfort won the title from Randy in 2004 was perfect timing. Belfort finally did something to be relevant at the time...

Anywhere in there. Wand hit too hard, and his speed was at his fastest. Vitor was in the middle of his desert wandering years, Wand was at his most violent.

Wand handily dealt with even CroCop's striking at that time, Vitor started to crumble after that infamous breaking of his mind against Sakuraba.

The best time would have been in 04 right after Vitor beat Couture, this was before Wanderlei vs Hunt so he was very near his prime at this time and Vitor was as well.

I agree with 2004 I think that was the most even time for both
