Exactly Rampage had him pretty beat up, Chuck was falling down just from Rampage pushing him. All that fight was was an example of someone who can stand with Liddell and not be an idiot like Babalu and run into his fists.

Babalu, Horn, Tito and Randy are all mainly ground fighters and wrestlers. Coutour has some pretty good standup and Titos is decent but none are as good as chuck.

After Chuck beats Tito up he should test himself in Pride. Cause in the UFC nobody has the striking skills to even have a chance. Brandon Vera is the only guy I can think of who may be able to beat Chuck. Of course Tito has a chance but I don't see it happening. I want Vera vs. Liddell

I agree that mma standup, in general, has improved a bit but still has a loooong way to go overall.

Chuck swings with everything and, as a result, has produced some fantastic knockouts. A few things though. First, his punches are too wide and his CHIN IS UP EXPOSED, and he stands squared up offering both head and body as a target.

No one Chuck has fought from Ortiz to Belfort on down protects their chin NOR do they punch straight, but loop their punches as well. QJ is one exception though.

Streetsoldier had success against Chuck because he boxes cleaner than Liddell keeping his chin down, hands up in a classic stance, and he fought low slipping under and attacking from under those haymakers. And when Liddell missed, Streetsoldier made him pay for it countering well and driving him back.

In terms of power Liddell has it. In terms of technique he lacks....SORELY. In terms of effectiveness, he's money....but based on my observation this is due by in large to the lack of overall striking technique widely and currently practiced in mma.

Scratch Belfort from off my above list. He DOES punch straight. However Belfort, IMO, does not set his shots up well and can be a mental midget sometimes.

Randy is a better than decent striker although he utilizes G and P often. He did beat Chuck but chuck came back and beat him twice since, although Randy was getting up there in years... damn I hate when I argue with myself trying to make a point. Anyways, for those saying that a boxer would murder Liddell I say: It's a good thing he's not a boxer then. He is an MMA fighter not a boxer, as for IRON MIKE, I don't think he could handle being whipped around by Chuck's kicks and right hand.
