So Do You Honestly Think Chuck Would Take Wanderlei Now?

im surprised how chuck has kept wanderleis name out his mouth since Pride "The Real Deal"

after tonight.. there is no doubt in my mind that wanderlei would KO chuck..

i think he would go down the same way Sakuraba did... be to careful and getting caught with the 1-2

chuck was not impressive tonight

i mean c;'mon.. tito almost rocked him.. and so did babalu.. those are literally c level stand up fighters,...

i think shogun would make a destroy liddell.. nevermind wandleri

His performance did not impress me. I'm leaning towards Wanderlei but can't say for sure. I've always been adament that Shogun would slaughter Lidell though.

My Top 5

(0. Fedor)
1. Cro Cop
2. GSP
3. Mauricio RuA
4. Quinton Jackson
5. BJ Penn

Wanderlei has had some shistey performances as well. I still think it would be a close one. Chuck was trying to play it safe and smart by not overpursuing because that is exactly what Tito and all of us expected him to do. He could have chopped his legs down too but he didn't because that is expected and he would leave himself open for a shoot every time he lifted his leg. By overpursuing like Tito expected he would have been vulnerable to a shoot as well since Tito surely has been practicing shooting in on barrages of punches, since that is Chuck's trademark move.

If Chuck were to fight Wandy, he better not keep his hands low like he did against Tito. Wanderlei would most absolutely exploit that. I still think the fight between Chuck and Wandy would be a good close one. It could go either way, but I'd give the edge to Silva. Shogun would **** him up though.

Almost rocked him? So you are saying if they didn't lose they would have beaten Chuck? Alright...

As for Babalu nearly rocking Chuck... I thought that as well when I first saw it. He rushed Chuck throwing punches, Chuck backed away from the flurry and then landed a heavy hit to knock Babalu to the ground. I thought Chuck was in trouble when Babalu rushed him as well. But when I saw the slow motion replay, I saw the opposite. Chuck didn't look worried or scared, he had a calm expression while backing away from the flurry and waiting to land a big hit, which he did.

I expected more out of you....

Chuck hasn't kept his name out of his mouth. In fact he talks about him on his own website in an interview.

While Chuck did look a bit slow, not unimpressive, but not like "Chuck", one thing is probably the fact that the dude is getting old. He was probably unmotivated going in this fight, fighting someone he already defeated, maybe the training is getting harder for him. Who knows, but I do think age is starting to kick in for the Iceman.

I haven't seen Silva fight in a while, but if he's in top form; I'd give the win to him. In top form, Silva is an animal.

well chuck did look a little bit more out of shape than usual last night. He was pretty gassed by the end of the fight, and his belly was hanging way over his shorts.

If chuck did want to fight wandy, he better spend some more time on cardio, because wandy will not go down as easy as Tito.
