Why do you guys keep talking about chuck lidell's sprawl when in the previous rampage fight he didn't even shoot on him?
Rampage punched lidell from up close until he was practically inches away from him and lifted him up and then slammed him. Sprawl does shit all if your opponent is 1/2 an inch from you and he's lifting you up with raw strength, especially if its rampage doing that.
Another thing I hear people say is that Lidell's punches and feet movement is better, but Lidell did land a lot of good hits on rampage in their last fight, the only thing is Rampage weathered through it and through a lot of punches himself and wobbled him.
Is Lidell better now because somehow his punches have become a lot stronger? I donno, watching that Silva vs Rampage fight made me think that he's nigh on impossible to knock out. The guy ate i think close to 30 knees that fight and a dozen punches all in the same succession and the guy was still standing (wobbling, but still standing).
Lidell is known for knocking people out with his power, but what can he do against somehow who can take his hits? and not only that, possibly hit just as hard or harder than him, and can physically lift him from his feet without much effort?
Remember guys, Rampage didn't do much shooting in that match with Lidell, he simply lifted his ass up after having punched him or clinched him.
If this is the old rampage with the same strategy as the last fight, I don't see chuck winning this.
