Mark my words, Franklin has better odds of beating Anderson Silva than Chuck Liddell has ever had of beating ANY top 5 LHW striker in MMA, much less Wanderlei.
There's a lot of 'fans' that are suckers for good marketing campaigns here. Don't bet your mortgage on a marketing project(Chuck) and then go on for months posting hate-filled rants about Wanderlei when he shatters your illusions - just like some of you have been obsessively doing with Anderson Silva.
sounds like a sig bet to me? state your condition, if the bet is about chuck making it to rd 3, Mr Local Fool.
Chuck is far less "overrated" than Wandy. Wandy has fought far more cans than chuck anyday. Here's his last 10 fights: losses to Henderson, Mirko, Arona and Hunt. A SPLIT decision win over Arona, and a KO on Rampage, his only close to worthwhile win in the last 10 fights. The others? Yoshida, Kondo, Minowa, a bunch of overrated japanese cans who've gotten raped by anything close to a professional, and an over the hill, competing above his weight class Sakuraba. Very impressive.
Let's compare that to Chuck's last 10 fights: A SPLIT decision loss to Jardine, and 2 unquestionably devastating losses from Rampage. The rest? 2 ass-whoopings on Randy couture, the legend they're mentioning in the same breath as Fedor these days, and one of the best wrestlers in the LHW world. Ditto on Ortiz, the guy who's already beaten your boy, and was arguably the best GnP guy in the LHW world. Jeremy Horn and Renato Sobral, two of the top submission guys in the LHW world. And Vernon White, definitely below par but still not a total can. And if you go one fight before, on the same night as his 10th latest fight, it was Alistair Overeem, among the top 5 Muay Thai strikers in the LHW world. Yeah, he's overrated, and Wandy's not. Like I said, I'll any day take a sig bet with anyone that at the very least that this will go to a decision, that is if chuck doesn't leave Wandy leaking drool on the mat in the first round. "Marketing Project"? The man has proven himself over and over.. but somehow the MMA elitists will always go hug some PRIDE nuts over the crowd favorites, if only to be different. While I admit that Wandy is definitely a tough opponent and it should be a great fight, I don't see how people using the "overrated" argument based on record can pick him over chuck
