I'd love to watch rampage cream chuck again, because he is a much better fighter.
I do think that there's a better reason why Chuck wins fights than because Dana White sets it up that way. I think if chuck was a trailer trash fighter he would have lost to Couture, he didn't. He wins fights because he throws some brutal strikes. He's not sophisticated, but he knows what he's good at and he takes advantage of that.
