he is not listed but Royce has done good in this type of thing before, but of those on the list I'd probably go with Chuck, but that is just me. I do not know all of the fighters well so I am just going by what I do know, and remember, knowing is half the battle... Yea I went there

why do all you guys think that chuck would do better then AA?

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.
Superman owns a pair of Mac Danzig bird feeder pajamas.

Well Chuck has brilliant takedown defense i can't see Arlovski taking him down which means he will have to strike, Arlovski is a very aggresive and explosive fighter where as Chuck is more of a counter puncher he just parry Arlovski shots till he makes a mistake and then take his head off.

Here's why I like Chuck over Andrei: Chuck Liddell can KO anybody!!!

Andrei can land alot of punches, but he can't KO an MMA fighter with one punch (Buentello doesn't count) and Chuck Liddell has faster hands, he gets around guards better and his takedown defense is better than anyone I have ever seen.

Chuck beats everybody by KO.

Do Freeman and Matyushenko count? He dropped both of them with one punch. Also, why doesn't Buentello count? He did in fact lay him out with one punch.

Buentello doesn't count because the man had no idea what he was getting into stepping into the octagon with AA, he thought he'd just take him down and dominate and so he made himself look even stupider than he is.

As for Freeman and Matyushenko, he worked them both so hard that they made stupid mistakes. He hit both of them more than once in their fights. He connected a few times on freeman and freeman's guard got sloppy.

As for Matyushenko, I forgot about him. I guess he did KO him with the one hard shot.

I see. You are talking about walking out there and hitting someone only one time in the whole fight and knocking them out. Well with the exception of Randleman I can't think of anyone else that Liddell has hit one time and knocked out either. So really they are about even on that count.

Now that I'm looking at his fight record, you're right. But his wins by KO are a little more impressive.
Chuck Liddell has iced:
Randleman (former heavyweight champ)
Babalu
Tito Ortiz (in 38 seconds)
Vernon White
Randy Couture (twice)
Jeremy Horn (actually by TKO, but it was definitely a KO situation)

Arlovski has KO'd:
Ian Freeman
Matyushenko (which was the first time Mat was ever KO'd)
Cabbage
Justin Eilers
Buentello

Andrei has also been KO'd 3 times (Sylvia @ UFC 59, Rizzo @ UFC 36 and Ricco Rodriguez @ UFC 32) where as Chuck Liddell has been KO'd once (TKO by Couture @ UFC 43).

Also, Chuck is on a hot streak right now, his last 5 fights he won were against Ortiz, White, Couture, Horn and Couture. That's a helluva list, right there.
