Yeah, the one thing that worries me is that his reflexes are declining. If that's the case, he really should hang em up, especially with his style of fighting. That may be why he's getting hit with these shots without seeing them coming and why they're so much more devastating. I've seen Chuck take brutal shots and keep on ticking. A lot of it has to do with subtle movements to decrease the power of the shot. If his reflexes are slower, technique isn't going to cure that.

I don't think so. It won't stop his unfortunate tendency to go in with his hands down, in any case.

I doubt it. The thing is, if or when Chuck does return to the UFC it'll be in 2010 or 2011. He'll be even slower, older (obviously), timing would be just like it is now, etc. Him fighting once a year doesn't help matters either (Rashad in 08, Shogun in 09) since he is how old... 40? 41?

It would be awesome to see a Chuck vs. Wanderlei rematch. The first one was a slugfest.
