Did you just say "you need to get inside on Chuck Liddell."? A few guys have tried that.
Vernon White was a great young striker with the athleticism to bring it to Liddell and get inside and throw short punches. While he tried to move inside he got punched in the face repeatedly, and he did not last that long.
Randleman got inside on Chuck, but those were all for takedowns, and we know that you have to be better than an NCAA wrestler to take down Chuck Liddell.
Jardine does have a shot at Chuck, the question is whether or not he's going to try and dance with Chuck. It doesn't seem to be an issue of people getting inside, it's an issue of argressiveness. Everyone knows how strong Chuck's hands are and so they try not to get hit so much, always thinking about normal angles, that they miss little things he does and some of the bizzarre angles that he throws at. That is, at least in my mind, the key to beating Chuck.
Look at it this way. Chuck is feared and respected by every lightheavyweight in the UFC, and his hands are considered the most dangerous weapon around. Chuck went to PRIDE and fought Rampage and Rampage just took the punishment as it came and dished it right back at Chuck, and he won. He showed no fear.
