Chuck needs to chill for a while...his best bet.
...Without a doubt Rashad Evans gave Chuck Liddell the most Brutal loss in his career. As I watched from my seat in the arena, 14k plus were on their feet and were totallly shocked. I never saw Chuck so discouraged as I did in his post-fight interview. But he still has a quest for the LHW Title. Chuck needs to do what Randy did...take a year off and re-invent himself. If you use the same game plan over & over with success, people figure you out knowing what to look for and expect.
...Chuck should let the LHW Title play hot potato for a while, because the Division is so deep.
...I said right after he lost the title to Rampage, I said the only way Chuck can get the belt back is to use all of his tools in his toolkit, not just 2 hammers. If Chuck wants to "swim with the sharks" as Rich Franklin put it,
I think he has no choice but to re-invent himself. If Randy did it...I'm sure Chuck can as well...
...As far as Franklin vs. Liddell...I don't see it happening. Franklin's nemesis has joined the LHW Division, The Spider. Rich trapped himself by going 205 because the Division is stacked with some very dangerous fighters.
...Not only is Anderson Silva in the mix, but Franklin may have to face another awesome fighter who knocked him out...Lyoto Machida. Rich Franklin is one of my fav fighters, but I think his stay in the LHW Division will be short. The Division too deep with a who's who list attached to it.
