I agree with what both TheDon and UFC101 said. Give him a couple years and then he will be a serious threat in the UFC LHW division.

Yeah, and after they had built Quarry up to be the next big thing in the MW division. I am looking foward to the same thing happening to Leben if he ever gets a shot at Franklin.

What if Babalu cannot do it

Do you think that by the time someone is ready to take down Chuck he will be passed his prime?

Maybe or maybe not. There certainly isn't anyone right now that can stand with Chuck, regardless of what Brandon Vera thinks.

Chuck is definitely the most dominant Lightheavyweight I've ever watched, plus he's just destroyed some of the best in the business. He's got a hell of a resume.

I am assuming that you are talking about in the UFC only, because there are pleanty of 205 lb fighters out there that can stand with Chuck right now. For example...

Rua
Silva
Jackson
Vovchanchyn
Lil Nog
Rutten (If he cuts down to 205)
Rizzo (If he cut down to LHW, even though I know you think he would lose)

That is just naming a few of the more known fighters at 205 who could stand with Liddell.

Watch them both fight again,
and again,
and again.

If you still think the same thing, you don't know fighting.

But then again, if you see my blog, I might be bias.

Never take counsel of your fears.

Within the UFC Vera is the only person even close to being a threat and he really isn't one he's just the only person close. Outside of the UFC as mentioned there are a lot of contenders but I still don't think anyone is better. Silva used to be but has lost a step in his last few fights.

I have watched them both fight and I have to tell you, Vera would get the crap kicked out of him if he stepped in the ring with Chuck and I have three reasons why:
1) Vera does all of his damage while standing from the clinch, Chuck is way too good a fighter and way to smart to clinch with a Muay Thai fighter.
2) Vera doesn't have the takedowns to put the fight on the ground. It was too hard for him to take down Scherner and, basically, Scherner sucks.
3) Chuck has KOs over strikers with faster hands than Vera, Randleman and Babalu for starters.


I am just talking about UFC, if we're talking all of MMA, I think he's number 3 or 4 (Rampage, Nog and Silva are probably better than Chuck).
