Reading through that interview, it appears to me that Chuck reacts really badly to criticism. Even constructive criticism. Like he plays down how he needs to evolve his game to run with the new tier of fighters. The guy is a legend, and i hope its just bravado that makes him come across as stubborn. I hope deep down, and behind closed doors, he is actually changing how he fights.
“I have one fight I get caught, and all of a sudden my striking is no good?” Liddell poses. “That’s kind of how you guys feel in the sport. You media guys, (if) you lose a fight – nobody was saying that when I beat Wanderlei (Silva). Nobody was talking about how my striking was overrated. Now eight months later, I lose a fight, and my striking is no good.”
I dont think anyone is saying his striking is no good. That would be absurd. But surely he must realise that fighters have his number now. He's gonna stalk and swing. . . and thats about all we got.
C'mon Chuck!! sort it out!! I wanna see you knocking guys out for fun again!!
