Wand was very uncharacteristically unaggressive and overly cautious than i've ever seen him when starting a fight. Couple of things I noted:
Wand didn't seem to want to committ to his strikes like he usually does was very tentative with them that is when he and Hunt where squaring off. Like when he fired off a shin kick and wasnt even stepping in to be sure he would land it, which he missed.
His hands always seem low which is usual for him. He tenses up with his thai posturing a lot which you'd think he'd be using his knee's legs when he does that since well when you tense up in that stance hard to fire his hands.. with speed. Didn't use any leg kicks/attacks at Hunt which I would think would of helped him to get inside or keep Hunt at bay if he fired more of them off during the match.
Needs to work on his take downs or should say his reactions to timing with his takedowns. Round 1 and 2 hurt him due to his inefficiency to being able to bring Hunt down, he either took some punishment coming in or Hunt was able to back pedal causing Wand to expend a lot of energy. Also was it me or did Wand also seemed to tire quickly. Maybe he didnt get enuff rest lately from all his activities that he is doing.
Wand being the striker predominately more so than a grappler yet who is good on the ground or has good training on the ground needs to work more on using his hips and leg positioning especially on top position to keep Hunt down. Grant it Hunt is larger and more powerful, just feel wand gave up to much space at times due to either wanting to try a strike or a submission but wasn't employing his hips or legs to create a bit of a stable base to be able to execute and yet still making much tougher on Hunt to escape.
The first punches that hit Wand from Hunt wasn't catching Wand flush and bit of a push when Wand fell and got back up immediately. The others that landed I think also took Wands energy reserves from him making him a bit punch drunk/tired but dont think he was as hurt as some folks are saying. He was stunned and weakened but I didn't think he was semi unconscious at all. Rocked yes.. but he never lost presence of what he was doing even when he went down to his back and assumed guard.
As for who won well both I think put on a tremendous show, giving the fans something to talk about. I'd say Hunt did maybe enuff dmg to sway it his way and made Wand play more of his game. A overtime round would of been a much better resolution or a Draw and a rematch being scheduled I'd rather seen.
Just a few thoughts, anyone else have any on the fight as far as from a perspective on Wand's game?
