    Can't help but think that after all the hype for this fight that it'll be like the Arlovski-Buentello fight and just piss everyone off.

    I know it probably won't be, but everyones talking about how great it will be.

    Can you send the link to that interview??? I havnt read it and as far as the fight i thinks its gonna be the best fight this year for the UFC without a doubt,most likley one of the best ever, im a huge fan of both fighters but my vote went to chuck just because i think chucks strikings is more technical then wandys and I cant see this fight going to the ground.

    I'm gonna go with Liddell

    I beleive this fight will be very close, but I beleive in the Octagon Chuck has to be a slight favorite. As everyone knows, no soccer kicks and head stomps, which is how Wandy finishes a lot of his opponents one they go down. Wandy might drop Chuck, but there is no way he is going to be able to keep him down, Chuck has a helluva chin and is great at getting back to his feet . Also Chuck is about 3 inches taller than Wandy and doesn't shoot in for takedowns, so that will take Wands killer knees out of the picture. I think Chuck is going to circle and use angles (see Couture II and III) and eventually catch Wandy flush and stun him, and will finish it with a flurry which will lead to a ref stoppage. Just my 2 cents. I guess we will see in November (hopefully).

    The extent of Chuck's wrestling is staying on his feet, that is fine but if Wandy wanted to take the fight to the ground he could. He obviously wants to shut Chuck up and KO him (as I want him to as well).

    Randy vs Chuck II was an eye gouge victory, yes Horn sucks, Randy vs Chuck III Randy sucked (obviously not into it as he was goign to retire no matter the outcome and that was on his mind mor than the actual fight).

    You shall see my friend, the hype surrounding Chuck is called Dana White politics, you will return to earth after the Wandy vs Chuck fight (should it take place).
    Randy would in no way shape or form been owned.Do you honestly think that Wand would've been able to avoid Randy's take downs?

    I doubt Wand could take the fight to the ground Chuck is a much better wrestler imo.

    Randy/Chuck 2 was an eye gouge victory ,but a victory none the less.Horn doesn't suck and Randy was good in Randy/Chuck 3 he was winning the fight untill he slipped.

    After Chuck knocks Wand out cold you'll see that Chuck right now in the best LHW in the world.

    It's different b/c the Chuck/Wand fight is confirmed if Chuck Beats Babalu or should I say when Chuck beats Babalu.The Wand/Couture fight was just in negoatiations.

    I think the Chuck/Wand thing has a little bit more to due with Pride needing to get over with the USA fans and build more of a solid fanbase in the US now, since they lost their contract with Fuji TV. Before Pride didn't really need the US money, but now they do more than ever.
