I hate these comparisions, they don't do anything. It's like saying Chuck Liddell is just like Rampage, and the only reason he has such a big following is because Rampage didn't come to the UFC till later in his career.
Chuck Liddell made a name for himself KOing B level fighters. That's not to say that he doesn't have wins over top fighters, but just that there is a lot of them who aren't top of the pack fighters.
Chuck Liddell = Chuck Lidell
Chuck fought the best fighters of his era. He ducked no one.
If the challengers were not up to your standards that is hardly his fault.MMA is a different sport from even 5 years ago.
Everyone says Overeem is the best MMA striker of the moment. Check out his fight against Chuck on youtube then come back and say he fought second rate fighters.
Without his popularity we would still be watching Sumo wrestlers fighting kickboxers
Show some respect!
