Squeetard has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Let's not forget that the choice of venue is crucial to each fighter also.

Chuck needs the fence. It is one of the most critical parts of his takedown defense. You know how he squirms his way back up it. Chuck would be foolish to fight in prides ring and Wandy wants the ring so Chuck will have a hard time bringing the fight back to his feet if he gets taken down.

That probably has a lot to do with the posturing both organizations are doing.

I wouldn't say the ring or cage would make that big of a difference. It would be a standup fight. Wand is not a ground fighter, he prefers standup even against guys he would benefit from taking down, such as Mark Hunt who is a great striker but has zero ground skills. I thought it was nuts of Wand to fight Hunt that way but he did.

I dont think Dana White would let Chuck fight over in pride because he would be getting offers and stuff but Chuck is going to stay with the UFC until he loses that title. After that I don't know.

Yeah, Dana wouldn't let it happen over there.
But Chuck himself has said if he beats Tito ORtiz he wants to move up to HW maybe, or check out Pride again because he doesn't feel like he is getting good fights in UFC

I am so sick and tired of all the exchanges of words and everyone talking about them I almost don't wanna see the fight. Silva vs. Liddell is probably the most talked about fight in all of mma and will probably never happen. I feel like I am in high school again and all these people are the school talkin about the fight that MIGHT happen after school and everyone is excited. But in all reality the two are just trying to show how big and bad they are trying to scare the other into not showing up. Pride vs. UFC, Silva vs. Liddell it's all a big show and we all fell into the trap of the war of words. We are all part of the ratings game and I am tired of watching this soap opera drama play out before my eyes. Fight or don't fight, get it over with!

I'd love to see Chuck fight some HWs. Is Tim Sylvia a clear favorite over Chuck? No way. UFC needs to take a page from Pride and do more fights where weight isn't an issue. I'm surprised someone like Matt Hughes hasn't done that already.

Again, I think you are all underestimating how important cage vs. ring is to the outcome of this fight.
