Hmm, if he isn't the best LHW who is?

UFC didn't rank him did they? mmaweekly ranks him # 1 but I don't see how that is the UFC's fault?

Lets look at the others and see who should be 1.

2. Mauricio "Shogun" Rua
3. Wanderlei Silva
4. Ricardo Arona
5. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
6. Renato "Babalu" Sobral
7. Quinton Jackson
8. Tito Ortiz
9. Kazuhiro Nakamura
10. Alistair Overeem

*shrug*

I think Chuck is probably 3rd behind shogun and silva. Babalu is a really good fighter though and a lot of people are overlooking this victory and putting it in the basket with shamrock and ortiz.

..and in all fairness you MAY be right. But until Chuck fights Shogun or Wandy we will never know. This sport is MMA, anything can happen and does happen.
Chuck could KO Wandy or Shogun in the first round, or get killed.

chucks' measly 7 wins in a row does not trump wandys 20 wins in a row thats for dam sure. and u say chuck is the champ that proves something? wandy is the grandprix champ of 2003 i think and is current lhw champ in pride. if u gonna argue that tito and randy is quality competition then... ufc marketting has gotten to ur head. any mma fan can deduce that shogun wandy has a much higher probablity of winning..

if he doesn't get passed rampage in their next fight nobody in this god dam forum should ever talk about if chuck can beat wandy ever again.. unless ur a total noob.

and if crocop wins i will not say he's a poster boy or a cash maker because i know who he is idiot. i know how good he is. for u to say that means u dont know shit.

dana white was kickin his own ass when anderson silva won the belt.. because he just lost rich franklin who brings in the dough from fans.. if liddel is lost esp to some foreigner the americans wont like it too much.. dont u people get it??? shit! he right now is the face of the ufc, but i guess they dont care if rampage wins since he's got personaility and can draw lots of fans

that's it right there. Chuck might be a shark in a sea of algae, but until he fights wandy or shogun he/dana can claim all the hype and status they want because there's no legitimate challene to him that is going to happen any time soon...

oh wait...

RAMPAGE!!!


whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

Where do you get your delusional theory that ALL UFC fans are narrow-minded xenophobic tools? UFC fans don’t care about what country a fighter is from.

Tim Silvia is from the USA and HATED by many fans.
GSP, Michael Bisbing, Mirko Cro Cop, David Loiseau, Andrei Arlovski, Royce Gracie, Renato Sobral all draw huge crowds and have large fan bases in the USA (Arlovski was way more popular as the HW champ than Silvia) so being American has nothing to do with hyping a fighter.

Chuck is hyped as the best in the world by the UFC because of capitalism. Why would the UFC mention any other organization or fighter from outside their sphere?
The NFL doesn’t mention Canadian football league when they call the super bowl winner world champions, the winner of the World Series is called the world champion with no mention of any other baseball leagues.

Anyone that knows MMA understands that Chuck is not the greatest, no one is (until they all fight each other several times) but he’s defiantly in the top 5 and if he defeats Rampage I would say top 3.

Who is #1 is all hypothetical BS, the UFC will hype Chuck because he’s popular, he wins and he MAKES THEM MILLIONS!

Shogun is the greatest LHW in the world. Enough said.

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

And yet in EVERY Olympics we RULE THE WORLD!

Not bad for a country that is supposed to be full of fat people.
We’re even competitive at sports that are not popular in the USA.

Most countries are at the top level in a few sports, we’re good at everything and great at most (sports). Name another country that is so dominant at so many sports?????????
