I think Rich will work Liddell's wide stance alot and keep him guessing. When Chuck thinks it's going to the leg he catches it to the ribs when he thinks he's getting it in the ribs he get's pecked with average yet accurate striking and when he thinks he is gonna get punches he get's kicked in the leg.

Liddell is always one shot away from winning as Wandy was and it wouldn't terribly surprise me if he won by KO/TKO. This is just my prediction and I want to see how close I can come on record.

Chuck will be taking this fight im happy to say. Dude obviously had a fire lit under himself as you could see in his recent pics. Chuck is in shape probably the ungriest he's ever been for a win and simply won't let a Jardine esque fight happen again. Chuck is gonna give Franklin more than he can handle. I wouldnt be surprised if it looks like Chuck vs Belfort.

Chuck will use his angles and light Franklin up all night long. I see Chuck getting back to his full arsenal aswell and not just looking for that one big shot.

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben

Sorry LOL I will edit. That being said you have a Liddell AVY doesn't surprise your butthurt by my prediction.
lol at being "butthurt." I was just saying your grasp on judging isn't great. It's cool though. A lot of people make that mistake, you're not the first and you won't be the last. Cool prediction. I obviously hope you're wrong but I've got nothing against Rich and as long as it's an exciting fight I'll be happy.

Ya sorry don't mean to come across as pissy.

For the record I am a Liddell fan also. One of the biggest supporters going into UFC 97 (look back if you want) don't know though that fight just completely sucked my faith away. He didn't even look like Chuck Liddell he looked like Mark Coleman wearing Iceman shorts.

Going into UFC 97 there was lot's of talk about Chuck evolving as a fighter taking this make seriously etc etc but in the end nothing changed or improved at all, in fact he got worse. Rashad's KO might have been more devastating but I feel like Chuck was winning up until that point. Who knows though this has been a long time off and the pics I have seen CHUCK IS IN SHAPE.

Not really even a huge Franklin fan ether this is just my prediction. Unfortunately I see Liddell living out the rest of his fights in Hughes fashion, Semi-Retired.

All good man. I probably came off like a prick in my initial post as well. So apologies here.

I'd throw out his UFC 97 performance. Not making excuses for him but following the Rashad KO I think he came back too quickly and he wasn't mentally into that fight thanks to Dana pressuring him into retirement. Now he's had 14 months off, should be healed, didn't let himself get out of shape, and has had more time to work with Howard Davis to actually improve his striking defense and movement.

I like the Franklin match up for Chuck but he's got to stop relying solely on his hands. He needs to get back to using his kicks and needs to start using his wrestling to do damage and not just score points. He was saying all the right things during the media call today that made me believe he'll win this fight.

Biggest thing he needs to do is make Franklin pay for all the kicks he's going to throw. If he does that and just doesn't allow Rich to batter his legs and body then I think he'll win.

I'm a Liddell supported through and through. I'm pretty much talking myself into a huge disappointment following the fight but whatever. If he gets KO'd or even loses a close decision, he should probably give it up for good. But Franklin isn't a young quick fighter like Rashad and Shogun were. Like Liddell, his best days are likely behind him.

nice write up but I think you're wrong.

I see liddell tagging franklin early on and getting the TKO by the 2nd round.

Two fighters I love... I see the first round as a lot of respect and circling, but the second round, Rich will get more aggressive, and will get caught by Chuck's right hand.
