I think it'll be a close match, but I hope Chuck wins, just looking forward to the hypothetical UFC v Pride tournament, and I'd rather see Chuck fight someone from Pride than Rampage as he's fought most of them already. That said they don't have to be champions to fight each other, and that is way off and not confirmed in any way; so in contradicting myself entirely, I just hope it's a good fight

you have a point....if they put him up against Shogun or Silva again we know how that'll end... but dana also said it would be another year before we see PRIDE vs UFC fights so i dont think rampage would still be champ then anyways...

Rampage....4th Round GnP stoppage....or 5th Round.....or a Unanimous Decision....or Split...or 1st round KO...or 2nd...or even a 3rd....yea..

in other words....Rampage wins!...if Rampage takes the belt i dont see him holding it for more than 1-2 defenses though..

IMO Chuck is a great champ and has more than a 50 % of KO'ing Rampage, but it would be nice to shake up the lhw div in the UFC

Exactly what I think... It would add so many different angles to UFC's LHW picture...

That and I hope if Chuck does lose that he'll move up to heavy and fight CC, and maybe even some of the big guys from Pride

your right the LHW does neeed a bit of a shake up but dont you think that if CHUCK wins he could decide that he has nothing to prove at LHW and make the step up to HW???
1. i dont think CHUCK would want to be remembered as losing the LHW belt then leaving that division, some people would call him a coward for not facing jackson a third time.

2. if he moves up to HW as the undisputed LHW champion then surely he would be able to negotiate bigger/better contracts for himself to fight the top fighters like CROCOP and FEDOR

question: is it actually a rule in the ufc that fighters can only fight each a maximum of three times or is it just something that the ufc does to keep the the sport fresh??

for example if RANDY were to beat CROCOP and CHUCK stepped up to HW would he get a shot at the title while RANDY was champion???

I think Chuck will be remembered as one of if not the most dominant LHW champ in the UFC win or lose the rampage fight... I don't know about a rematch if he loses to Page because Chuck would already be 0-2 gainst him...

I don't think that there is an actaul rule stopping fighters from going beyond the rubber match, but it seems to be how a lot of fueds in combat sports are decided... It's the whole best out of 3 thing...

I hope Chuck doesn't fight Randy again... IMO Lidell is the Natural's kryptonite

Rampages stand up is fine. He would be fine on his feet for the most part, and could probably land a good deal of shots on Liddell. The part where Liddell always rises above his opponent is when they just start scrapping. If Rampage sticks to his technique, and covers up well(like he normally does), I don't see how he could lose. Rampage by boring decision.

thats exactly what im saying....rampages stand up is fine......NOT GREAT.... and Liddell rises above the rest by being extremely smart. he wont punch himself out, or just let someone take him down with poor footwork. Which by the way jacksons footwork looks horrible to me...he steps straight back when trying avoid punches. thats not something to do against a striker like liddell...LIDDELL WILL NEVER GO TO A DECISION....Either its a ko for his opponent or him....and didnt ortiz cover up realllllllly good too? look how that turned out

Chuck is really good at getting people to fight his fight. And when they don't fight his style he loses.(Randy!!!!!!!!!!!)

I really think Chuck is on fire right now and its gonna take a lot for rampage to beat him

I dont really think Rampage has good standup...i guees you guys havent seen the beating Wanderlei gave him twice and the beating Shogun gave him.The Problem with people who fight chuck is they seem to fight his fight by standing up..If your a wrestler or a BJJ guy obviously you should want to take Liddell down which isnt very easy...If rampage wants to win he'd better hope he can take Liddell down cause On feet chuck is arguably the best...

All the guys at Chuteboxe have different standup then Chuck. I think Rampage takes this the same way he did in 2003, and i'll bet some $$$ on it.
