Will dancing make Chuck a better fighter?

Just wondering what factor his poor footwork played in his decline. Not that his footwork was horrible, but it certainly wasn't A. Silva quality. It makes me wonder if Dancing with the Stars is actually going to improve his game, if he indeed chooses to return. He's under some serious coaching right now, and just survived another week. The show has actually made some pretty good dancers out of some very unlikely contestants.

To be perfectly honest, he's not doing terrible, but not that great either. But he should start improving as the weeks go on. If he keeps surviving, he'll likely become a very good dancer, with much more coordinated feet. Ballroom is some pretty serious stuff. But would that be enough to make a difference in his fighting??

As I analyze his last 2 fights, I had him ahead and would have picked him to win right up until the KO's. If that wasn't the case, I wouldn't even speculate about this. I'm not thrilled about the prospect of him coming back, but can't help but be curious about the benefits of better footwork. Or is it just an issue of declining reflexes? Can't help but wonder.

Unless he wants to dance a tango de la muerte with his opponent I don't see how dancing will help him win fights.

Changing camps will make Chuck a better fighter. He wasn't learning anything new at The Pit.

Dancing will make him a better fighter because i personally believe his in better shape now then he was for his fights. I feel Chuck hasnt taken the fight game seriously in a while and his workout intensity suffered major from it. He relied so much on his punching power that i think I "Personally" feel that he didn't think he had to work out as hard because of it.


This is all speculation on my part of course and i would like to see chuck back in the octagon once this whole dwts is over just to see if it did make any difference at all.

The only thing that is going to make Chuck a better fighter is a time machine. He has clearly shown zero interest in evolving his game as time has gone on. The only way he will be competitive again is if he somehow goes back in time five years.

True.

Its wont make him a better fighter, just a former fighter who can dance (kinda).

For what it's worth, he looked a lot better in Week 2 vs Week 1. I could see a slight footwork improvement, but unless he can change with the times and evolve as a fighter as others have, he will not even sniff LHW Championship contention even if he does come back.

Well I guess it would give him better foot movement Liddell should come back and dance circles around all these LHW's..

Jason taylor said he lost something like 3 percent body fat and felt faster cause of the show. And he was still playing football at an amazing level. He wasnt retired or anything. So it will get chuck in shape. Like earlier noted if it does improve his foot work maybe it will help him. I agree he needs a new camp and a time machine. But these little changes could make a small enough change to get him back on the winning end of things.
