John Hackleman: "We like him at light heavyweight"

Pit Boss John Hackleman held an online chat and answered a bunch of questions for fans.

On who he'd like to see Chuck face next...

"Forrest Griffin!"

"We like him at light heavyweight. We don't see a reason to go up to heavyweight right now. He could still make light heavy pretty easy."

"As far as names, I can't really talk about names. I would rather fight Randy I guess because of the relationship with Silva and his management, but I don't see either fight being productive for anybody involved."

On Chuck training with ATT and whether or not he's become too one-dimensional...

"Yeah, you learn something new wherever you train. He's always cross-trained and had people come in. He will definitely learn from Liborio and Matt."

"No...He does go for power punching, but he does throw combinations. But once in awhile, he does get overzealous. He was in the middle of a combo when he got knocked out agaisnt Rashad."

His predictions for Wanderlei-Rampage, Griffin-Evans and Henderson-Franklin...

"That's a tough one. I'll go with Rampage."

"Sh!t, I dont know? I'll have to go with Griffin."

"Dan Henderson, but not as solid in him as if it was at 185, but he will still pull it off."
