    Didn't Tito try and prove a point by standing with Chuck too? Stupid shit to try and play another fighters game like that.

    Chuck does this to guys because he can get up pretty well from a takedown and won't jump on top of someone when they're on their back.

    First I would like to dispel the myth the Liddle can't be taken down. It's happened before & it will happen again. Low kick followed by a shoot, it can be that easy!

    It seems to me that Liddle has built a reputation similar to Tyson in his prime, in that fighters are shit scared before they get in the cage & only hope to survive against him.

    I'm hoping Babalu shows Chuck respect but not too much respect like Horn & Couture did in their fights. Oh & I'm not taking anything away from those fighters, but any good wrestler/bjj fighter should be able to take anyone down.

    Liddle is well known as one of the best stand up fighters in the game. Horn said that he wasn't looking to take the fight to the ground & wanted to stand with Chuck. In anyones mind that's gotta be a dumb strategy.
    That was the only stradegy he could have.His wrestling sucks and he knew he couldn't take down Chuck so what would you of rather him done?

    Given Horns recent lackluster performances i think he is going to come in ready to go. he just needs to get that fire back in his eyes. I'm taking horn by sub 3rd round. He has a good chin. With the exception of the Liddell fight i don't think he has ever been knocked out. Guys tough as hell.

    As the guy said earlier Horn is a great fighter, but he rarely brings in his A game. Against Liddle he actually promoted himself saying that he was gonna stand & strike! The submission fighter is gonna stand with one of the most dangerous punchers in the sport. Bizaar!

    Lindland? Well, I'd rather watch puddle evaporate.

    There is real potential that this will be one of the most boring fights in the history of mma!

    This fight will definitely give us a better idea of where each of them should rank in the top 10. With Franklin vs. Silva also coming up the top 10 rankings in the MW division will be a lot more then just an estimated guess.
