If they brought Wanderlei in, it would be after Chuck and Rampage fight or else it defeats the purpose of having Rampage in the UFC right now. They might just have Wanderlei fight the winner (if Pride let's him go).

I am a Chuck lover but every fan has fantasy match-ups and Chuck/CC would be one of them. And think about it... there is potential for Chuck to be the first person to hold simultaneous belts in two different weight classes.

Also... Same day weigh-ins are the only way to go. And the only reason it would be dangerous to do so is for fighters who don't belong in that weight class in the first place. Instead we'll begin to see fighters closer to their own natural weight in each class.

I admire the moxy, don't get me wrong. It's just....... why? I can see why he would want to test himself. I don't want to see it, I don't get why you all would want to see it (except extreme Chuck haters), I don't get why Dana would even talk about it publicly. I don't think it's anywhere near gonna happen, but if it does it'll be a faster HL reel KO than prob'ly any other UFC CroCop fight (IMO) . Style wise they are so opposite in CC's favor. They both have good matchups w/ certain fighters, I just think Chuck's style says fast CC KO to me. But yeah I think it's weird when any fighter doesn't say anyone anwhere anytime. To me when you fight, that's what you do. IDK.



It sounds like you're more scared for chuck than he is for himself. I don't think it's as bad of a match up as you make it out to be. There will probably be 10 lbs or less weight difference and Chuck is considered by most to be a higher ranked P4P fighter than Mirko.



I guess maybe it's just me... course, I wouldn't rank Chuck over Mirko P4P either... so, idk. I just think he's way to much of a sit back counter striker, Mirko would run through him like noone he's had a chance to face.... ever. Jackson doesn't even compare, Alistair is no Mirko. I can't think of anyone else Chuck has fought to compare. I don't hate on Chuck and will rarely bet against him, I just think in this fight he would literally have nothing but the proverbial puncher's chance.

Crocop Liddell would be sick!!!

lol..i hope Baroni K-Frank-TFO..


I REALLY hope Rampage's next opponent is an easy fight for him..i wouldnt want to see him lose and not see the rematch we are waiting for....



Aint that the truth.. If Rampage fails to win, He'll be on a LONG road to recovery, and he seems to have a hella good ring entrance. Fun to watch..

I agree that Wandy would have to come after Chuck vs. Rampage because i think there would be more buzz about it and we would have a better idea. Being that Chuck fights in UFC 71 (late May) i don't think Wandy will be able to come in by then, let alone gain the hype that the UFC will want for it.

I would like to see Chuck vs. Cro Cop as well, and i think Chuck would do it because there aren't many challenges left for him. he is getting older, and we all know Dana has been trying to get Wandy to fight him for years. who knows if that will happen at any point, so i think they have to plan for Chuck to face a challenging opponent. Chuck has dominated for some time, and if he dominates Rampage, say in October or whenever they fight, they will have to come up with someone else for him to fight. If Wandy isn't signed by then, i have to think Cro Cop. The TUF guys may be good, but the way Chuck handled Babalu and Tito they can't go against him for sometime.

I agree . The one problem that could conceivably happen though is Chuck could catch him. If Cro-cops the champ then ,and Chuck decides he's beat everone and retires that's 2 vacant belts. Highly unlikely true, but still possible.

If that did happen I don't forsee that being a problem. You would want to avoid the paper champion, but it would be a great excuse for a UFC Grand Prix style tournament.

Chucks been dominating for a long time. It would be good to see him go up a class. It will be his chance to show the world whats what, and he wouldn't have to worry about cutting weight before a bout. That alone could make a difference.
