    Chuck punches so hard and so accurately and from so many weird angles. Couture controled him, but Jackson beat him up. He has a huge chip on his shoulder 'cause of this, and EVERYTHING to lose…He saw the method to beat Quinton's style by wathcing the Wanderlei and Shogun fights, and has felt more aggresive and more technical fighters in his battles with Ortiz and Couture. He's going to dispose of Rampage quickly, and violently.
