"...or getting close to it"Wanderlei fought Vitor in 1998. He began his huge undefeated streak in 2000.

No hate, bro; almost everyone loves Wand; he's a legend and a great guy, however I won't lie; I just don't see a realistic way for him to win this. Vitor is faster, stronger, has more 1 punch power and I believe his ground game to be better. He hasn't taken the damage that Wand has over the years, and that's why, despite them being only a year or so apart; it looks closer to 5 or 6 years.I didn't see Wand beating Cung either; and when he did I woke the whole street up (despite Joe claiming it was an early stoppage; Cung Le's nose and response to the stoppage said otherwise) but Le is 40 and a lot smaller than Vitor.I see this being Wand's alamo :(

 All I'm going to say is alot of people (including myself) didn't give him a chance against Cung.  Wanderlei still has serious agression, power, and volume of strikes.  Yeah, his chin may be a little more brittle now, but a "brittle" Wand chin can still take some damage. I still give the edge to Vitor but I almost can't believe the level of hate that Wand gets for getting flash KO'd by Leben....'cause that's basically it.  Crocop, Hendo, Iceman, Rampage, Franklin (decision).  Are you REALLY going to tell me those losses tell us he finished in MMA?  Wand is still top 10 and I hope he proves it against Vitor.  Although, if that's the case since Vitor will have got kicked in the face by Silva, and got beat by an aging Wand, you'll probably say he's finished too....

 Vitor is less than one year younger than Wand. Vitor has fought: Tank Abbott, Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, Alister Overeem, Sakuraba, Gilbert Yvel, Heath Herring, Tito Ortiz, Dan Henderson, Matt Lindland, Rich Franklin and Anderson Silva. Vitor has only ever lost to Champions and Legends. But yeah.....he sucks. MMA fans...

Put two and two together, "rematch". Back when it Wand was on his long tear or violence Vitor wasn't doing jack shit. Closest he ever got was entry in the GP which he immediately lost.
