just curious how the site as a whole feels about this.

picked this up from the debate in this thread.

i chose this forum bc it said other Padded Room topics were moved here & since that is where i would have put it before, I assumed it went here now. if not, could a mod please move it for me.

Dan of course for me If he's in his prime meaning now.


The dude beat fedor.

Do I think chuck in his prime could beat fedor? Hell no. Not even the fedor now that supposedly fell off

this has been a dream fight of mine since the beginning of time.

i had a hard time voting, but eventually went w/ dan. most blame chuck's losses at the end of his career on his chin & age, but i think it was the step up in competition.

i also have never thought tito or randy were as good as they are made out to be (please dont misinterpret this as me saying they are not or were not ever good) and those are 4 of his biggest wins.

please dont flame, as i will not be arguing this since it is my opinion. it's all in fun. i love chuck more than dan, so hope no one gets their butt hurt.

It's a good thing you put down your disclaimer, poorfranklin, because I was ready to open a can of whoop ass.

I voted for Dan. Stylistically, Dan is a bad match up for Liddell. Dan is sort of a "more ferocious Couture."

I'm not going into detail on how Dan would beat Liddell but it'll probably go something like this...

IMo Prime Dan is better than Prime Rampage....and Page beat Chuck....twice! Dan by straight up knockout. If anyone wants to flame, bring it on....I am and always have been a Chuck hater and swing violently from Tito's sack!

A 2005-2006 chuck vs the same Hendo right before hendo buried wanderlei.....

Hendo by GnP He would have withstood Chucks punches standing and would have raped Chucks wrestling defense. Probably within 5 rounds of utter domination Hendo would have cracked Chuckys defense for the win.

I went with Chuck, slightly. I think he would pick Dan apart at distance, and stuff most, if not all of his takedown attempts. Would be a hell of a fight though. The mental image of Dan's overhand right combined with Chuck's low hands was giving me pause before finally settling in on Liddell. I had flashbacks of what Rashad was able to land on Mr. Liddell.

Chuck made his career on knocking people out......Dan has still never been knocked out. If Dan didn't finich him, he'd get the decision.

Ko'ing Hendo is like me trying to bang Jessica Biel........it's a nice thought, but it's never gonna happen

I think Chuck would have won by decision.

I definitely don't see him knocking Dan out but I don't see Dan landing the H bomb on him either or having any success taking or keeping him down.

It's hard to pin point what exactly is prime Dan Henderson. He's been competing with the very best his entire career and has been pretty damn consistent the entire time.

If Liddell fought Hendo around the UFC 40s-60s I would probably chose Chuck, but it would be a bit of a toss up imo. I wish we could have seen it.
