I personally don't like Chuck. He's a devastating striker, but that's pretty much all he can do. I would just like to see him knocked out.
I really, REALLY want Ortiz to beat Liddell but I recognize it'll be a very difficult match for him. One thing Liddell deserves credit for is the fact that he CAN wrestle on the ground and has awesome takedown defence. He's more than just a striker - he just usually hits well enough that we don't get to see his other strengths.
Personally, I don't like the way Liddell fights. The last two matches I've seen him in felt less than spectacular. Sobral had him in a bad position (and briefly stunned if I recall) but then, unfortunately, overpursued the WORST guy you could possibly overpursue. We saw what happened there.
If Ortiz is willing to accept a high rate of failure with takedowns, yet continue to aggressively attempt them - he will eventually succeed. But sweet Jesus - he's gotta get it on the ground somehow. Style aside - Liddell hits like a bus (and it's such an odd punch he has too...)
