Still one of my favorite fighters ever but it may be time to hang it up. The Wanderlei of old, never backed down from anyone.
His recent actions over the past year have me wondering whats going on with him. He gets angry over every little thing, attacks Chael at an expo, attacks again on the set of TUF, gets extremely angry at questions directed toward him regarding his actions, bails out a side door during a random drug test… what’s happening here? What would make someone act all angry and rage like that? Very interesting behavior and I think the MMA press and fans should be asking some more questions here.
I still like Wanderlei, except this new drug test dodging is going to hurt his rep more than the show I think. Look, Chael insulted Brazil and its people. Wand got pissed, and he had a right to be. I think the real story was Chael being uncomfortable with doing his character schtik on the show. He seemed really conflicted about which Chael to be.
Nah, I still love the guy.
I like Wandy less
I lost a lot of respect for Wand. I don't care if the fight is fake or not. He acted like a bully for half the season, stained the image of MMA in Brazil and set a very bad example for kids watching him.
I don't think the fight was fake btw.
Now, after all the talking, he ducks a drug test and the fight is off. Great way to lose fans.
I am old fashiong in that I like to hear both sides of a story before I judge.
Even more so when the only source I have in a known liar.
Will always be a fan....Embarrassed but i am fan for life.
Nothing has changed really, I never believed he wanted this fight.
I haven't seen his TUF stuff.
It confirmed what I always used to think about him but had come to question in recent years. Apparently first impressions are usually right.
He dodged a fight. He's done. Never would have thought he'd find a way to duck. Chael knew something about Wandy we didn't. He said from the beginning that Wandy would weasel out..
still a fan
don't care about the drama
It hasn't, Wanderlei ducks fights. That should be common knowledge to everyone by now.
None, Wand has been fighting since 96 bare knuckle. I don't care what Chael/his fans have to say considering how he was irrelevant most of Wand's glorious career. MMA fans are the worst, and so are the new fans not respecting the Legend Wand is. Fights Mark Hunt/Cro Cop 2x at HW..... Scared to fight Chael blanket Sonnen. Sure. There is more to the picture and I'm sure they will fight before Wand/Chael are done with their careers. This will be a distant memory in most fans eyes.
He talks a lot, and is willing to jump Chael when supported by his buddies. When it's time to fight for real, he bails out - as Chael predicted. Bottom line Chael owns him.
This. My opinion of Wandy has not changed in the slightest.
And even if he did do something wrong I wouldn't change my opinion. Someone gives over a decade of their life, health, passion etc to fighting in big shows and puts on those kind of fights and then does something I don't like and all of the sudden my opinion of them should be lower and I should see them differently? I guess I'm just not that kind of guy.
I was never a huge fan or anything but I've lost hespect for him. Pretty pathetic of him to talk all that shit when he never intended to fight Chael.
