    I don't think so. I think Chuck had a bad night against Rampage and just got outpointed by Jardine. I still think he is a top LHW.

    i think lidell is a top LHW. he just spent many years fighting average competition, and now he's in for a shock when all the above average guys come out. i think silva will beat chuck at his own game. chuck has a losing streak against aggressive fighters… i.e. randy in their first fight, rampage jackson (both fights), and now wanderlei. wandy is probably the most aggressive. i know this is random, but does anyone else think wandy's face resembles a gorilla?

    haha yeah, I can see that. I always say he reminds me of a characature. You know where they draw you with a big head and small eyes.

    i personally don't think jardine is any good. he is like rashad, just average.

    yeah jardine is a good fighter but not great. Rashad is a overconfidant punk who actually thought he beat Ortiz. And then he made it out like sayin Nappy headed ho is racist. He is a nappy headed ho lol. I despise him. Now back to the matter at hand. Chuck will lose unless one of those sloppy punches he thrws lands right on the money. Silva is very good at recovering. His last 2 fights yeah they went bad for him but they were against great fighters that he had beat previously. Well he beat crocop really but it was a weird rules match so it was a draw but he did win that fight. Unless chuck learns to put his hands up he will keep losing.

    I think Silva is going to win. Chuck has had some bad luck lately. I think a lot of people expected the loss to Rampage, but not to Jardine. He's getting older, but mostly I think his dedication to training has suffered the last year or two. I think it's hilarious to see people say things like, he only does well against average guys, or he's over rated, or washed up, or any number of things that come from people who probably don't compete. The guy has beat Randy twice, Tito twice, Babalu twice, Jeremy Horn, Belfort, Randleman…..He can't win forever. No one can. He doesn't deserve to have his skill minimized. As far as his striking goes or "sloppy" punching. He is one of the most technical strikers in the sport. He may have an unorthodox style, but it's been very successful. Like I said, I think Silva will win, but don't be too surprised if Chuck takes him out like a fat girl in dodge ball. He has the ability to do it as he's moving backwards. A perfect style when you're facing an aggressive fighter like Silva.

    ya i think sliva needs to fight a smart fight and not chase him very much… chuck tried to get rampage to follow him the whole first little bit of the second fight and it was only when he let rampage into his head by mocking him did he engage and get knockd out
