The way Chuck Liddell has dominated recent opponents Tito Ortiz and Randy Couture, it appears the Ultimate Fighting Championship's light-heavyweight champion is unbeatable.

This is not even going to be close. Rampage is going to MAN handle Liddell again.

3 years ago. Both are different fighters. You saw what Randy did to Chuck the first time the fought. What happened the 2nd and 3rd time?

I would like to see Rampage win, but I dont think he will. Chuck has it all dialed in right now.

i really think it will be a good match

maybe rampage wins and maybe chuck wins

but i really dont see how anyone can be 100% sure of the outcome, like someone said he lost to randy the natural and came back and beat him up twice.

then again rampage is hungry and is a great striker as well

the only thing im sure about is that it wont go to the cards

yeah...exactly... everybody is referring to the last fight, but chuck has improved a whole hell of a lot more than rampage has since he got the jesus smacked into him....

imo it will be a close fight, but in the end chuck will counter punch his way through rampage and have another highligt reel KO on his resume...

rampage is good enough to beat chuck but i've got to agree with zephead on this...
chuck has beat everybody convincingly and is going into this fight full of confidence
IMO chuck by KO

when was the last time chuck fought someone who didnt need to take you down to win though rampage can strike as good as anyone at this weight(except maybe shogun) and he has ground game. hes like a tito ortiz with natural talent

Rampage's last losses have been by ko and chuck is a ko artist all i have to say is overhand right.

Going to be such a good fight. Can't wait to see how close the odds are.

Fight could go either way.

Exactly.

I think it'll be a stand up fight, with Chuck eventually coming out on top. But Jackson can still tag Liddell with an uppercut and (T)KO him.

It's been too long to predict the fight using their last fight. Chuck has made leaps and bounds since then, he has developed a great sprawl, hes a natural boxer and his ground skill is underrated cuz you hardly get to see it, but i do think his boxing skill is a little overrated. In the chuck's fight with Tito he proved he wasn't unstoppable, in fact tito stood with him pretty well (...except twice). Fighting a guy who's willing to throw hands with him should make it an interesting fight indeed.
