HAHAHA i remember you saying something about this recently

i think wand still has a few more wins in his pocket, just re-watched wandy-bisping and he showed some GREAT head movement along with some good technical punching and leg sweeps

Yeah, he's definently setting up his punches now rather than wild-swinging.

Anyways I want both to win, but I feel Yoshihiro's gonna take it by UD or TKO.

I think Sexyama will be taking this one. I think Wandy has improved, but he'll be fighting someone of a higher caliber than Bisping.

Akiyama has been training at Xtreme Couture since his fight with Belcher. It'll be interesting to see how much of an impact training with an American camp has on his fight plan/skills.

Even so, I'm torn on this. I love Wanderlei, but part of me is telling me to move on.

That was a sick sweep!!

Wand all the way...I hope he comes out like a pitbull and makes Akiyama regret calling him out.

I believe Wandy was just settling into the MW division with that Bisping fight.
Should be an awesome fight between these 2, however i think Wandy will take it and for some reason i think he'll be a little more rabid on akiyama in this fight.
He's going out there to give an "awesome knockout for my fans"
