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.
Well since you know everything I guess they wouldnt need to fight............

Your the same guy that didnt see Chuck losing to Rashaad...........I didnt either but the point is anything can happen and you dont know whats gonna go down......last I checked that why they actually fight!!!!

Yeah your right which is why I said "Dont get me wrong Houston has a punchers chance" But houston is a completely different fighter than Rashad and no where near his level. I still believe that if Chuck would switch his training regime slightly and plan of attack Chuck would beat Rashad8 times out of ten.

Rashad's surpirse gameplan wouldnt work in a second fight because I mean really thats what it was. A surprise trick up his sleeve based on his expectations of Chuck. If Chuck mixed it up a bit and doesnt press forward than Rashad wouldnt be able to land that punch and the fight would have continued with Chuck picking him apart throughout the duration of the fight unti maybe catching him.

Rashad didnt outstrike Chuck he out moved him and landed the bigger punch. Rashads real edge was his speed and his surprise but that could all change in a rematch (Not that I want to see it happen) But meh im arguing symantics.

The point is that Houston isnt Rashad and by no means is he deserving of a fight with Liddell.

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben

Must have missed the dobnt get me wrong cuz I didnt see that but I get where your going....my only argument to Chuck only having lost to top guys doesnt really add up when you consider Jardine.......

Chuck got aggressive with Rashaad and lost cuz some of his fundamentals are off like comming in with his hands down and chin out and If he did that against Houston Alexander it would be lights out(not cuz its Houston, but because any striker that connects when your hands are down has a shot to k/o you) and thats what i mean about Houston....

I dont like the match-up and at this stage of his career Chuck needs to maybe collaborate with another camp in conjunction with Hack and The Pit to hopefully improve these mistakes and also teach an old dog new tricks.......

Thats what im sayin man The Pit is all well and good but imagine if he went and trained at American top team for awhile aswell. im not saying ditch the Pit or anything but expand Chucks horizons for sure and it would vastly improve his game.

Randy is the man at finding peoples strength and weaknesses and exploiting both.........keep your fingers crossed dude....
