Houston is actually tailor-made for Chuck to KO, as long as Chuck doesn't start walking him down like he did Rashad. Houston will come in hard brawling, and Chuck traditionally does well against aggressive brawlers. Just backpedal and let em walk right into his fist.

If it did happen, I see Houston being overly aggressive and chasing after Chuck, which is what he wants him to do.

One good shot is all it would take for Chuck to put Alexander away anyways his chin is EXTREMELY suspect at the moment anyways.

Chuck has yet to lose to ANYONE NEAR Houston Alexanders low low level of competition. Most people forget Chuck has only lost to very very solid competitors and he's not falling off the face of MMA yet.
I completely agree with this. And I would like to see this fight

Good point. Why take the chance of getting hit, especially after his last fight? Trade with him until Houston gets comfortable, and then take him down and pound him out.

It's as Greg Jackson said one time, "Chuck's become predictable."

If you are predictable in any facet of the game today, you can be beaten. Sadly, it was going to happen to Chuck eventually.

To be fair it happens to everyone eventually especially the older guys in the sport thats why these young fighters who arent great in any one aspect of the sport o so well because they are constantly changing things so they dont become predictable.

But I think we have seen enough of Houston to know he is to stubborn to learn any ground game and will continue with his wading into people swinging style. WHICH has allready been figured out.

dont get me wrong houston would have a punchers chance but this would be a joke of a fight and an absolute insult to the iceman.

That being said after some thought I REALLY dont want Chuck to fight at LHW anymore. Maybe fight Shogun and Franklin but thats it after that I want him to move to HW and test himself their or retire gracefully before he tarnishes his own name.

Says it all for me.
Re: Fighting anyone else. Watching Chucks early fights he has great wrestling. He needs to utilise that or he'll end up falling lower & lower down the ranks.
