Everyone loves a happy Wand.
Can you not let a happy Wanderlei be happy without calling him out for at least a few hours, Tom Watson? We know you’re riding high off of your Stanislav Nedkov win, but in my opinion, it’s just plain rude to want to pop the bubble of joy that was Wand’s night in Japan after knocking out Brian Stann like a boss.
You did it anyway, Tom Watson. You made a slightly confusing comment about supplements, which could be a veiled reference to possible PED use (get Wand on TRT ASAP), then called out a legend on Twitter.
Hrmph. Well, Tom Watson is 1-1 in the UFC, with an admittedly awesome knockout of Nedkov, and a one-sided decision to Brad Tavares (don’t let the split-decision there fool you, Watson lost decidedly). Does the former Bamma and UCMMA middleweight champ deserve a shot at Wand? Given his legendary status, Wand is above a Watson fight, but with his possible stay at 205 for a few money fights before retirement, no. No he doesn’t.
