Chuck's timing was off, but that certainly was not the reason he lost.
First, if anybody had a gameplan, it was Jardine. He's always done this, 1-2 leg kick, and it seems to work pretty well against a poor striker like Chuck.
Chuck's "gameplan" was to knock him out, and when it didn't work, he was out of ideas.
Both fighters suck at striking, and i felt like i was watching a bar fight with controlled aggression.
Chuck sucks because he basically just uses hands, and no techniques, all power. It's great because it really scares the crap out of people when he starts throwing those hands, but if you can survive a few strikes, Chuck has no options after, except going over and over for the same thing.
Jardine sucks because all he does is 1-2 leg kick, in every single fights. It's a pretty effective technique, because it's pretty hard to throw good strikes after feeling those, and the 1-2 really set the kick up well, but that is not supposed to work forever. When he's not doing that, he's always opened for strikes(and he got hit pretty badly too). He's a pretty solid guy, and that's really what is helping his style.
In the end, I think Chuck's fans are out of ideas to explain why he's losing STANDING UP.
Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.
