Here is a blog comment that pretty much gets right down to it. Personally, I just don't get it. If someone is trying to punch you, shouldn't you put your hands UP rather than DOWN at your waist, or below your chin?

I think it is important to realize that though you make many good points, the REAL reason Chuck is losing is is training staff. Allow me to elaborate….

What person in their right mind would allow a talented fighter to enter the ring or cage with the most fundamental, basic flaw that is the FIRST THING ANY AMATUER fighter learns. COVER YOUR JAW AND TUCK YOUR HEAD!

Chucks left hand is despicable. There is no way he will ever be safe from knockouts if his left hand is at his waist, doesn’t move his head and he drops it when he punches. Period. Think Rampage, now Evans…threw with hand down. KO.

Todays fighters are indeed fighters that are fast and powerful, but the difference is that most are fundamentally sound. Rashad had great head movement, covered his head and body and was very very fast. Chuck plodded in with short steps, his head up (!!!) and left arm at his waist.

Chuck if you are reading this, keep going, just change trainers. They should be embarrassed, not you. You have been proven to follow instruction and adapt your game. Just get some people that wont allow you to carry bad habits into the ring…I still think you are capable of competing at this level, just go back to basics with people that can help you.

Man, I don't think you guys realize that Chuck is not a very big guy. He's not even big for LHW.

Most HW's would have pretty big size / weight advantage.

And though Chuck has some wrestling credentials, he doesn't have the world class grappling background that allows smaller HW's like Randy and Fedor to prosper.

If Chuck can't make it at LHW, I don't think he needs to be fighting. I realize that LHW is a thicker division, but he would get smashed by most UFC HW's IMO.
