    Chuck was only great because he didn't fight people like Hendo. that and his eye poke maneuver.

    Hendo would have wrecked him then, now, anytime.

    Chuck never fought the guys with the same kind of power Hendo fought, so I think Hendo's chin has proven stronger. Hendo has eaten big punches from Rampage, Fedor, Shogun, Wanderlei, Anderon Silva, pretty much all of the best KO artists of the sport and he's never been put away by strikes or come close to being KO'ed. The same can't be said for Chuck, and in Chuck's prime he was a grappler killer.

    Well, simple is what I do best haha

    And I wouldn't call Chuck technical either, but perhaps more technical then Hendo. Admittedly, I'm sure you guys have more knowledge about striking technique then myself.

With Hendo, you know that right hand is coming, but very few people can stop it regardless. Shogun is a much more diverse striker, but Hendo has better headmovement and accuracy with that right hand. That's what makes him elite IMO. Liddell, has more diverse striking, more technical,(if you can call it that, because he even said he couldnt be a boxer due to his unconventional style) good footwork, but I think I have better head movement than he does.

    Standup would be very easy, as Hendo's aggressive style mixed with Liddels counter striking and superior range would have Hendo soley focused on the takedown.
    No problem?????????????????????????? The Iceman could whip my ass no problem. Hendo, now that would be a different story. No problem.
