His sloppy style of striking is getting picked apart by people who know how to throw punches and how to keep their hands up.
Did someone drop you on your head recently? Rashad is most definitly a wrestler (And Chuck just lost to him) and Wandy is one of the most feared and devastating strikers in the division (But chuck outstruck him and took that bout in grand fashion) This whole thing kind of derails your logic.
Drop that argument because its just not valid Liddell has out stricken MANY top strikers in the LHW Division and knocked several of them out in the process. Its not his fault that wrestlers and BJJ guys were the most dominant guys out there during his reign in the UFC.
Chuck got caught no doubt but in my mind that 2 out of 3 times Chuck would win this fight. Dont get me wrong im not makign excuses and he should have had his hands up and realized Rashad would do something crazy but i dont think Chuck would fall for it again. I really think he just didnt expect anything like that from rashad i mean he pretty much ran from Chuck the whole fight and then that came out of nowhere.
Chuck needs to learn from these mistakes becaues it seems to me he consistantly underestimates what his opponents are capable of and seems to construct his gameplan around what that person is known for instead of what that person will bring into the octagon to beat Chuck. he allways expects them to fight him the way they would any of the lesser fighters and jsut isn#t learning from this mistake.
