Chuck Overrated...2 wins over Randy,2 wins over Tito,2 wins against Babalu,win against Wandy,Horn,But 2 losses to Rampage and loss to Jardine,Randy and Horn makes someone overrated..
Who the hell has Kimbo beat?? a 50yr old Tank Abbott.2 Joke fights with Mercer and Bo Cantrel...Oh wait he did beat that dreads dude on youtube i forgot ..
Chuck overrated NAH.Maybe at the end or close to the end of his prime..But overrated...
Well its easy to play devil's advocate on those - A mentally in form Randy kicked Chuck's ass. If you've ever been through a divorce you would know you can't fight 100% mentally. Not an excuse, Chuck won fair, but it wasn't against the best Randy (like the first fight). Not to mention Randy is better at HW. And I'm not even a big Couture fan. Tito was never that great, just isn't impressive beating him imo. Wandy win was FAR FROM CONCLUSIVE. Liddell looked good, but Wandy looked weird, awkward gameplan, and Chuck going for meaningless takedowns and then looking at the clock was just pathetic. What fighter looks at the clock!? Finish the damn fight! I thought it was close to a draw, 1-round each, with the last being even if takedowns don't count. And once again, far from the best Wandy that was in there. Babalu is an okay win, but who has he ever beaten besides a green Shogun?
Not to mention I think Vitor edged him, and Soleuv was a draw at least, with Bustamante definitely beating him. See where I'm going with all this? And even if YOU personally do not overrate Chuck, most of his fans do, especially those who think he would even stand at chance with Crocop or Fedor (remember that?). Just like me and you might not overrate Kimbo, but many people do.
And styles make fights, I think Kimbo's is perfect against Chuck. Solid chin (if Chuck couldn't knock out Jardine/Wandy/Vitor/Soleuv/Busta, he's not knocking out a bigger Kimbo). And Kimbo's way more powerful. Sure his experience against solid comp is lacking, but that doesn't decrease his chin/power/speed.
