It was easy for hendo to get him down pretty much everytime he grabbed him he took him down.

Well that is even more to my point, why is Chael going to handle Rampage (an absolute beast) up at 205 when Hendo couldn't?

Thats why Chael is "The Worlds Greatest Fighter"
As we all know, Chael is never short on words, however we do know that at 3-2 he's not so great at backing up those words, so him saying he'll fight any man God has put on this earth and him actually doing it, let alone beating said person, isn't something I'd want to bet the farm on.

Cardio is what failed Hendo while if Sonnen was to fight him it would most likely be a 3 rounder.

I don't think anyone has EVER managed to stop Chael's takedowns.

Chael says he has never lost a round. And, I think that's because everyone he has fought from Anderson Silva to Forrest Griffin has been taken down and pounded on.

Don't see a reason Rampage would be any different.

Hmm, yeah he could take Rampage down or whatever, but I think the biggest factor in this fight would be confidence.

First time fighting at LHW and you've got Quinton Jackson on the other side of the cage staring at you? Chael may be a better wrestler and he may have more quotes of confidence than the Dictionary could even come up with, but I have no doubt that Rampage would be the more confident man in this one.

There's no way in hell Chael would finish Rampage, in fact I'd say Rampage can stall Chael on the ground enough to repeatedly have the fight stood up.

Chael has all the confidence in the world. you don't go straight after Nate or Anderson as soon as the bell rings if you don't have confidence

You think someone who says being awarded a BJJ black belt by the Nogueira brothers is like receiving a toy in a mcdonald's happy meal, lacks confidence?

Considering all the shit Chael has talked over the past few years, I would think he has confidence in himself to back it up -- or is crazy.

Not sure, how it being a result of a lack of confidence would work..

No, Chael SAYS he has all the confidence in the world. The reason he goes straight after guys is because then even if he loses, he can at least say in his sad little media rants that he 'may not have won, but he sure beat him up'.

They guy doesn't win enough or finish enough people to be truly confident, but yes his confidence in the fact he can take you down and girl-punch you all night is sky high.
