I don't know who was fighting last night but it's not the Wanderlei I remember. I haven't seen his last few fights so maybe he's changed over time. I counted one knee, and a few weak kicks. And standing around passively waiting for Chuck to initiate, I've never seen that in Wanderlei. I'm wondering if the lack of a corner and Chucks constant circling maybe threw him off. In PRIDE he used to cram people into the corner and just knee them into submission.

Well, congrats to Chuck.



Bigger fight area with a distinct lack of corners really hurts his fighting style. It gives a guy like chuck a ton of room to move and easier outs when he gets backed up. Also, Silva was NOTABLY smaller than in Pride. Take that as you will...
