    The only way he can win is if he takes the fight to him early (be it standing or on the ground) and then vitor will stop fighting.

    I think Vitor is more skillful in every area.

    The later it goes in the fight the more it favors Wand I think, I reckon he needs to spend a round grappling to sapp Belforts entergy and confidence.

    This really is a huge fight for the history books, It would do massive things for Wanderelei's legacy to avenge that loss. For Belfort Rumble and Wand back to back would maby even throw him back into a title shot (Belfort vs Anderson 2 in Brazil again?)

    Belfort is favorite and rightly so here but I could see Wandi pulling it off. If it goes into the later rounds then Wandi's determination can see him pull it through. Sadly for Wandi though he is past it and at this stage Belfort has better standup, better grappling, more power, a better chin and he's a much better athlete. The one thing Wandi has over Belfort is conditioning. At this stage though Belfort can go for one last run for the title while Wandi is a fight or two from retirement.
