Chuck actually had really good skills. Watch his fights where he got knocked out. Just about all of them he was winning before his chin gave out. Franlin,Shogun,Rashad, imho Chuck was winning each of those fights. If Chuck still had a chin i think he could still be a top 3 competitor.
Oh and btw
if anything the PRIDE guys had padded records.
Cmon... these guys would not even be allowed in the UFC. I know some of you really like Sakuraba but i never thought he was good. He got some wins because the guys he fought still havent "matured". Most of the "Pride Studs" fought 70% cans.
