Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Wanderlei Hits the Monkey Bars

(Wanderlei Silva makes the most of his recess time.  Check out the full gallery from "The Axe Murderer’s" training session at Combat Lifestyle.)

Ricky Hatton’s conditioning coach says "Rampage" Jackson will be in the best shape of his life for UFC 92, but get a look at Wanderlei Silva, who also seems to have upped his game since relocating to Las Vegas.  Could the third meeting between these two old foes be the best one yet?

Well, some of that will depend on whether Rampage decides to fast before the fight or not (personally, I recommend eating food), and whether Silva still has his number in the Thai clinch.  But seeing both these guys revolutionize their training and diet before their third fight just goes to show how far the sport has come in the last few years: from guys known only to hardcore fans, training at obscure gyms, to TMZ-caliber celebrities and world class athletes with the best coaches and playground equipment money can buy.

Rampage had better be training just as hard as Silva is.  Beyond just showing up in good shape, he’ll need some extra help to get over the psychological hurdles if he’s going to beat the man who put him face-first through the ropes four years ago.  Something tells me "The Secret" just ain’t gonna do it.

I've learned through an anonymous source that this is not a picture of Silva doing a pull-up. It is actually a special bar installed above his toilet to aid in the evacuation of his bowels. Apparently Wandy shits 12 pound bowling balls, literally.

Thanks, drummer*, for the link to the training footage.
It is well appreciated.
Wand all the way.

Someone with connections to Wanderlei, send him a message before his big fight in December: Tell him to shave his fucking head.

It looks to me like he's training for Ninja Warrior. Finally someone that can give Nagano a run for his money!

not a chance in hell Forest actually won that fight it should be page and him rematching with wandy vs rashad, and quinton deffinately deserved the title shot he allready beat chuck once. the belt belongs to wandy he'll get it as soon as they give him a shot. if anyone doesn't deserve a shot it was forrest after losing to tito and getting KTFO by jardine and then eeking a win out over a injured gassed shogun. the real champion fight is wandy vs page. forrest rashads nothing but a paper belt with a couple reality star TUF bums.

there is some great video footage of both Wandy and Maia training on Wandys web site. If Jackson wants to win this one he will have to do it on skill because he won't over power Wandy and Wandy is certianly noy going to gas out. And I agree with Anonymous, Jackson did not earn his title shot, nor did he keep it for very long. Wanderlei will be champ soon, i think his only real threat is Machida.

i like both fighters , but i would like to see Wanderlei Silva win this one. Rampage is good but i just think that there are better guys out there. the UFC works like the WWE in that the most popular guy gets to be the champ even though they dont earn it (Brock Lesnar), Rampage kind got the title this way when he fought chuck. what should have happen is the Pride FC and UFC title should have been unified (Chuck Liddell vs Dan Henderson) first, then Rampage could have got a title shot. i like Rampage as a fighter i just dont think that he earned a shot a the belt, i think he is top 10 in the LHW class, but not #1. Forrest Griffin would not have kicked the crap out of him like he did, if he was #1. Forrest Griffin is the champ and he earned a shot at the title, and so did Rashad Evans. i cant wait to see those guys go at it!

Rampage FTMFW!!!

i like the picture with wandy pulling the chains.. they look like the ones rampage wears
Ouch! That hurts- November 25, 2008 at 8:29 am
Wow, those were some great pictures of his workout! Can't wait for this one. Wanderlei is one of my favorite fighters. So humble outside the cage and, well he lives up to his nickname in the cage.
drummer- November 25, 2008 at 8:12 am
hahahaha, thats a good one

Yeah I hate those fakers.

Looking forward to this one, they're both goign to throw down however in the cage I give teh edge to Rampage because he can stuff him up against the cage.

I'd love to see Silva win just so he can have a crack at Griffin or Machida

Rampage is going to win by TKO in the second.

Next up: the youtube vid of Wandy working the Wii Fit

@ drummer

by the looks of things in that photo if rampage cant pull him off some one else is!
drummer- November 25, 2008 at 7:35 am
I just don't see Rampage pulling this one off. I think it was a bad choice for him to take this fight when he needs to pull off a win. My prediction, late first round KO for Wanderlei.
mayhem420- November 25, 2008 at 7:32 am
Wandy just seems to have Rampages number much like Anderson Silva has Franklin's number. I also think that this fight is too soon for Rampage after his whole mess. I would rather have seen him come back vs another maybe less caliber fighter. Still looking forward to this fight as I dont see this one going past round 2.

It looks like Wandy didn't want monkey bars for Christmas... he wanted a Nintendo!

rampage has this one
England Rules- November 25, 2008 at 7:20 am
Round 2 TKO for the NEW Rampage with Redbull coursing through his veins.

Especially the cookie that saves my name in there. Next is registering to post on here, or posting as a guest. To ensure it's the right people posting, ya know? No more of those fakers.
