I think they'll give him someone who is more of a wrestler with limited stand up. They still want to put him back in the title shot relm to get more dollers out of him.

I would like for it to be Luiz Cane, but I doubt they'll make that matchup.

It will probably be a tailor-made opponent to get Chuck back on the winning track, butas I look at the UFC LHW roster there really aren't any established guys that would be a gimme fight for Chuck, so I'm going to stick with my main man Luiz Cane.

If Chuck loses again I think he retires so this is really a pivotal match in his career.

Maybe they'll bring in a guy like Arona to face Chuck, hype the shit outta him and it becomes win win. If he can't take chuck down he'll more then likely get Ko'd since his chin isn't fantastic so he's about the biggest name around that would get people talking and it's still a favourable match up for Chuck(unless he demolishes his leg with kicks).

No way. Chuck isn't what he used to be but you ask any mma fan, or random people on the street and they will know who Chuck is.

i think chuck should fight shogun. if shogun wins , they built a new star among the mainstream fans . If chuck wins, hes back on track in a big way .
plus it would be like wandy vs chuck all over again .

As for who Chuck should fight next. I would like to see him get Brandon Vera. But I expect it to be a lower level guy.

I would like for him to fight Shogun to see if either are still a real contender for the title. But i would also like to see him KO Vera so he will go back to HW. But the UFC will five him Schafer since he is off a win over a known fighter.

I think he should move up to heavy weight. He'll still struggle at the top of the class but his strengths were always his counters and his fast hands, both of which are being negated by the faster stronger LHW contenders that are coming up.

I think everyone on the poll except Shafer would tool Chuck. Chuck has been figured out and he needs to be where his strengths are still viable, at HW competing against slower opposition who can't get off before Chuck does.

Personally, I don't think Chuck can really hang with the top dogs of either weight class anymore and is not gonna make another run for the belt. They were trying to give him a lay up with Rashad and he blew it, so I don't see him getting another shot at the belt unless they throw him to the top contenders and he manages to pull out the W (which I just don't see happening).

Seth Petruzelli or Kurt Angle as both opponents would have nthing to lose. Maybe Vera if UFC doesnt release him?
