true true but do you think the size difference would be a factor???

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.

I am not sure if there would be as much of a size difference as most people think. I think AA fights somewhere around 240, give or take. Liddel is a 205 lb fighter but cuts weight from somewhere around 220-225 and probably walks around even bigger than that when he is in the "off season", so Arlovski wouldn't dwarf him or anything.

i think aa would beat chuck his chin has never been tested i have never seen chuck liddel take a big punch from eny strong opponent a think aa is far to athletic for chuck and chuck would find it hard counter punchin the guy has his strickes are very fast and come from all angles he is very hard to predict

granted chuck would only need one one hit but look at the way both fighters fight chuck liddel never presses the action he waits for a counter punch and every time chuck is chased he backs off i think aa agressiveness would be to mutch he would be very agressive and be pressin the action the only way chuck could win is if he hits aa with a counter punch aa is taller to givin him an advantage i love chuck but i couldnt see him beatin aa.

You guys are so damn swept away by Chuck, he is a nasty mofo but he is no where near invincible. Arlovski or Sylvia and possibly St. Pierre would easily defeat Chucky in an open weight tournament. and I beleive Tito will win if he is granted a title shot at Chuck. his days are numbered

Firstly, there's no way in hell that St. Pierre would beat Chuck. He's a good fighter, but he's not a good enough striker and he couldn't takedown Chuck.

Tito can't compete with Chuck and we saw that at UFC 47 when Chuck dominated tito in the first round and then KO'd him cleanly in the second.

Arlovski and Sylvia could both beat Chuck, but Andrei's not as well versed in boxing and Sylvia's only advantage is his reach. Both of them are great fighters, but Chuck has way more experience than either of them.

I don;t think Chuck can stand up with Sylvia. If that were to happen I think Sylvia knocks him out.

Tito has already been KO'd by Chuck and judging from his fight with Forrest hes newhere near as good as he was.

St Pierre is a great welterweight keep in mind welterweight thats two divisions and 35lb differance and we all saw how bad his standup was against BJ and theres no way hed take Chuck down.

Sylvia and Arlovski would be his only real threats as Sylvia has a reach advantage but Chuck is just a better MMA fighter with superior striking and 9 times out of 10 the better fighter wins.

And finally Arlovski this is a hard one to call but as i said earlier Chuck hits very hard and is very difficult to take down so chances are it would be a standup battle and Chuck hits harder than Arlovski.

If you wanna talk about funny scenarios, maybe Chris "the Crappler" Leben will beat Chuck.

As for sylvia, he doesn't have the history to back up his skills. He hasn't really proven that he can beat someone with great striking. The fact that he didn't have the power to KO Assuerio Silva is just proof that he doesn't have as much power as he would need to take Chuck.

Sylvia has only beaten 1 figher with a win legitimized as "KO" (though he has 5 wins by TKO). Apart from Arlovski and Mir, his resume isn't that impressive. I don't think that Sylvia could take half of the fighters that Chuck's thrashed, and so I don't think that he take Chuck.

When I say half of the fighers Chuck has beaten there are really three that I'm sure he wouldn't dominate: Babalu, Randleman and Couture (in his prime). I think Sylvia would struggle with anyone who could take him down, like Monson.

If you really want to talk possibilities, do you really think that Sylvia would dominate Belfort and White like Chuck did? I don't.
