The Iceman will prevail!
Before i start i want to say that i am a fan of both fighters and am looking forward to a awesome fight at ufc 79.
But i feel some people are writing chuck off already, ive looked at forums and poll's and loads more people beleive wanderlai's gonna beat chuck. Which i can understand because he lost to rampage twice and silva beat rampage twice but i dont see silva beating liddell at all.
I think wanderlai is the perfect opponent for chuck, he doesent back off, he always pushes the pace, but more importantly he fights straight down the middle and when he strikes he swings like a madman leaving himself wide open. All i can picture in this fight is that when silva goes toe to toe with chuck, liddells gonna pick the perfect shot to knock silva out, just like when babalu chased chuck in the 2nd fight and randy chased him in their 2nd fight. Their recklessness got them knocked out.
But silva might have a whole new gameplan for this fight you never know, i wouldnt be over suprised if he won, but my moneys on chuck, i think its gonna end in round 1 as well (hope not though)
People beleive Liddells has past it, I dont, randy lost 2 fights at heavyweight to come back and beat chuck, randy also came back after liddell knocked him out twice to win the heavyweight title, i know people wll say 'you cant compare anyone to randy' but i beleive chuck will be around for a while, he hasnt sustained any major injuries and he'll always have that KO power.
Im calling it now - Liddell KO - Early in the 1st round
