Listen fellas, Chuck and Wandy fighting is out becasue Wandy got KOed. His winning the Pride tournament was a condition upon which this fight was conceived. Chuck fought one opponent and won, and Wandy fought a number of oppoents and lost. It ain't happening anytime soon so the waiting game begins. Have patience.....

Chuck vs wandy .I give it to chuck all the way. Wandy is probably my favorite fighter. Been watching him since he was an unknown in the US. He is to open for punches, and with chuck it dont take many. He has heart but that wont do it. I think with all his fights he is a little past his prime and chuck is in his. Love to watch wandy fight, but would rather see shogun rua fight liddell. Anything can happen that is why I paid to see ken fight Tito the second time. But I needed this chuck wandy fight a year ago.

It will happen in UFC if it happens at all. Dana isn't stupid enough to allow Chuck to fight Silva on a Pride PPV in the US, which is pretty much the home of UFC. Now if Chuck just goes to Pride (expired contract or w/e) then there is nothing Dana can do about it. Only other way I can see it happening is if Pride And UFC put on a joint show and that seems like a very long shot.

It will happen in UFC. Also I think Wanderlei's stand up is tailor made for Chucks unorthodox striking. Watch Silva's stance vs. Chuck's hooks. Perfect for a KO. I like Silva and Chuck but I would bet on Chuck this one. If Chuck used straight shots and jabs alot I would go with Silva. But he doesnt so enough said.

...Chuck needs the fence?...he usually dictates the pace and continues coming forward. Chuck does not need a cage for a vicious knockout. He proved that in Pride FC Total Elimination 2003. Wrestling/Takedown is more of a fence thing.

Angles is what beats Silva. Cro Cop proved that with the left off the ropes that put Silva on his ass. Liddell has been mixing his style up pretty good calculating when he's going to be aggressive and when he's going to move and counter. Chuck also throws a better variety of punches than Silva, and from different angles.

Silva is a FIERCE fighter who seems to wake up when he's been hit hard. He's got two speeds - 0 to 100 to 0 to 100 - fighting like a wolverine. He's physically strong, well balanced and extremely dangerous in the clinch, and though he swings wildly ALL of the punches are fast and hard to the point that I've seen some of his opponents physically moved from a forearm, rather than a fist, landing on their upper body. I think Silva's aggression can cause problems for Liddell who's fights with controlled aggression. Or it can work against him as Chuck could move and counter him effectively for the knockout.

I ain't making a pick yet....it's too damn early and the fight's not even on the radar......yet.

I'm with you ShootBoxer. I think Chuck is great and I don't like Wandy but he is also a great fighter. That's what makes this fight worth seeing. Can Chuck survive that flurry? Can Wandy survive those bombs? I would expect one or the other to be KTFO within the first few minutes. The longer the fight goes the advantage goes to Wandy I think.
