Chuck's performance in his last 2 fights has been poor. Without a doubt in my mind he needs to start considering getting new coaching staff and change up his game plane a bit. If he does this he could beat Wandy.
I honestly think Chuck's days are numbered not just due to his age but some of the talent coming into the UFC from PRIDE and elsewhere.
Quinton Jackson for example is way out of Chucks league at the moment. I don't think he could beat Dan Henderson either. I especially don't think based on his performance against Keith Jardine that he stands a chance against Wandy.
He is going to really need to step up to win this fight and salvage his career after a huge upset by a mediocre fighter. While his age does factor into the equation I personally feel that his training and conditioning are really what's been hurting him.
