Honestly, I think Chuck should hang it up for his own good. His heart is still there but his chin, reflexes, and equilibrium are all starting to fade. He should retire and find something else MMA related to be content with.

I agree with most of that list, except Thiago Silva and Franklin. I think Thiago is a dangerous young gun in his prime who would unfortunately eat chuck for breakfast at this point in Chuck's career. And Rich just has very sharp technical striking that would avoid and outpoint Chuck all night the same way Jardine did.

But everybody else yes. Tito he will smash for a third time effortlessly. Coleman/Couture won't be able to keep Liddell down any more than they could before. Forrest would be a cakewalk, nothing he throws would hurt Chuck in the least and Chuck would eventually land a bomb on Forrest's fragile chin. Kimbo and Buentello could be interesting, but I still think Chuck has better hands than these guys, and more power even though they're bigger. Bonnar is just a weak B level fighter who is exciting but is nowhere near the top in the UFC's packed LHW div, the day Chuck starts losing to that level of fighter is the day he should retire for good. And Wanderlei is still the same guy that Chuck just beat not so long ago.

What I DON'T wanna see is Chuck vs. Machida or Jon Jones. Either of these guys would humiliate him badly at this point, and tarnish his legacy. Even Lil Nog or Luiz Cane would beat him pretty bad IMO.

Chuck is finished IMO, i think he could beat a few fighters in the UFC just on experience alone, but i think the majority of the UFC fighters now would beat him. The guy is too punch drunk now IMO, his reactions are far too slow and has no chin anymore, anyone with a little speed would KO him.

However i still think its going to be a good fight with Tito, Tito has never been a good striker and i still think Chuck will have decent enough TDD to stay up. The prime chuck was a really bad match up for Tito as we found out, but now i think its alot more even and could go either way, am going to go with Tito this time.

I still want to see Chuck vs CroCop and don't understand why this hasn't happened both guys are over the hill former dominant strikers with name value and they weigh about the same. Does anyone really give a crap about Chuck fighting Tito again, I sure as hell don't.

Liddell (vs) Ortiz III

Not many are "pysched" about this one, but I am. I cannot stand Tito Ortiz. Watching him get KO'd and losing for a 3rd time would be awesome.

Liddell (vs) Kimbo Slice

Slice is "game" to stand and trade with anyone. Let's face it, his ground-game sux... but with a puncher's chance, Slice and Liddell could turn this into an intersting slug-fest.

Liddell (vs) Franklin

Assuming those last two fights haven't worn him out... a match-up against Franklin would be a good fight. Franklin still has enough "juice" to push Liddell, and it would be a good test to see how Liddell would do against a pretty good 'All-around' fighter.

Liddell (vs) Couture IV

Despite their age.... their past.... their recent fights....

This would be "epic." A fourth confrontation between two living Hall-of-Famers is a more sound match-up then Couture-Coleman. There is no-doubt that Couture can still mix it with the best of them. Despite the loss to Lesnar and Nogueria, he still came back to win a close-decision over the YOUNGER, Brandon Vera. If Liddell can get past Ortiz and maybe another fighter, and Couture keeps winning.... history can be made.

I think Chuck would definitely beat Kimbo now that I think about it. Because, I would assume Chuck would have the superior stand-up but saying that he actually starts losing the stand-up, what would Chuck do? Take Kimbo down and pound him out! While we can assume Kimbo still has a weak ground game, Chuck was at one time primarily a wrestler. Just thought I'd share my little revelation that I'm sure everyone else has already considered .

I would also pick Chuck over Struve, despite the height and reach disadvantage. I see Chuck being able to do what Buentello did but more effectively. Only problem I see for Chuck is if Struve incorporates those leg kicks again like he did in the third round. Chuck seems to have trouble with leg kicks (see Jardine).

As for a Chuck vs. Cro-Cop match, I would be very excited to see this fight but as much as I want to see one more LHK KO from Mirko, I don't want it to be on Chuck .
