Hey Matt Boone, I think Rulon could definitely lose the 35 pounds he'd need in order to fight Chuck as a 265 pound HW. If you remember the way he looked when he fought Yoshida, the extra pounds he was carrying looked like luggage on him. The gold medalist at 265 would still be skilled and massive enough to take down and keep down the iceman. This fight will probably never happen, even if Chuck took some fights as a HW. Rulon, although a great wrestler, is a boring mma fighter. He'd probably do the old lay and pray in order to beat Chuck, his GnP isn't that good. His takedowns, control on the ground and conditioning are all good but that doesn't equal ppv buys and put butts in seats. Dana would never sign this match, it wouldn't be very exciting and he wouldn't want his big money-maker losing. What might be kinda cool is for UFC to have a super-heavyweight division. We'd get to see some real monsters go at it.
