No big issue
Wanderlei is much, much more suited to LHW than Chael though....he has a larger frame. At 37 years of age...Chael hardly has time to spare, he's very clearly past his prime and now off of TRT....who knows how badly it will affect him.

Chael isn't good at LHW. He is much better at MW.

People who say Chael is a mid-tier fighteror that he isn't that good is an idiot.

at 185 he is a fucking beast.

in the past 7 or 8 years he has only lost to MW to Anderson Silva(injured, possibly retired) and Maia(who is out of the weightclass)

He has taken out some tough MW's who are getting good matchups now because he went to 205 to get out muscled.

He looked in shape for the Shogun fight IIRC, but I honestly think he underestimated Rashad. Between his commitment to UFC Tonight and TUF Brazil in the near future, it bogged him down.
Yeah Chael underestimated the former 205 champ, who has been top5-10 for years, all the while Chael has never done shit at 205. Sure buddy...

Doesnt really change the complexion of the fight though. Chael is the better wrestler, has a suspect chin after getting rocked, Wandy the better striker, but Chael wont recklessly engage Wandy on the feet

People seem to be overlooking one simple thing...Chael was a nobody for his entire career, until he started doing TRT, trash talked his way into title fights, and ended up losing all of them.

So not dried out and showing tight muscle definition = tubby?
