we obviously agree on the major issues...
and really, the small difference we share are exactly that... just minor differences...
I made the last statement because everyone seems to think Chuck can throw with CC... but if that is the case, then they must think Chuck can throw with Fedor... and that is *definitely* not the case... especially, like you and I agree, since they are in different weight classes.
I think CC is as 'all-round' as you can get...
He cant be a specialist in *everything*... I dont think any mma fighter can...
You specialize in one respect and get good enuf to shut-down any attempts to change your winning game plan... ie. Hughes, Chuck
I think this is where CC sits in the grand scheme of things... he's the best striker in his weightclass and can shutdown attempts to change his gameplan.
BTW... I agree with you, I dont count Randy out... I didnt before the Tim bout and I dont now... I think Randy DOES stand a chance with CC... but he is the definite underdog.
... and with the way things have been going lately, who knows
