Rampage is a very good striker though unlike anyone that Chuck has fought recently
and like you said, Wandy's takedown D is not like Chucks so its a different matchup.. Chuck is facing guys that cant strike, but can work on the ground.. but they cant take him to the ground
the guys Wandy is facing can take him to the ground, Arona has done it and beat him doing it.. and Wandy then beat him.. im just saying that the guys Wandy fought had a better chance of beating him then the guys Chuck fought JMO on that
