    Indeed a good question. I would say he isn't worth the points. He's not a fighter that would make or break me getting a PPV. He's fun to watch but not a main event draw for me anyways.

    At first, I thought this was a poor bluff on Wanderlei's part because he didn't want to take the Sonnen fight. But after thinking about it, he did just KO Stann in a main event, so I can't blame him for seeking PPV points on the package. Especially if his opponent (Sonnen) is earning PPV points. He does have a legitimate gripe.

    I don't think it bodes well for Wandy that Dana went public with their beef over $$$. Dana doesn't like to lose arguments, especially those in the public forum. He put the Wandy "retirement" suggestion out as a threat--translation: accept the fight or you won't fight for us again.

    Didn't they try to make this fight before, but an "injury" prevented Wandy from accepting. I wonder if that "injury" was really a dispute about PPV points that still hasn't been resolved, and is now spilling over into the public forum.

    I think you're 100% correct in estimating that Wandy's name value outdraws (at least) 90% of UFC fighters. PRIDE never dies. And Wandy knows that with GSP headlining, there will be plenty of PPV purchases.

    Usually the controversies concerning fighter compensation revolve around the low-tier fighters who make the UFC minimum. It will be interesting to see how the UFC treats one of their stars, especially a guy who has some leverage, because obviously Wandy's made some money along the way and can afford to accept fights on his own terms.

    And he should get em if you ask me.

    Silva at this point might not be as big of a draw as he once was but with the history, trash talk and hype the Sonnen Wandy beef will sell this fight, give Wandy some fucking PPV points.

    A pissed off Wanderlei is one we would all to pay watch fight, a pissed off Wanderlei being unleashed on a top notch shit talker is the perfect match.

    Wandy turned into a nice guy with age. I don't think I've seen him angry in years in any interview.

    You seen him angry in the video where he told Sonnen he would lose his teeth if he kept running his mouth, I think he would be angry for this fight.
