For him, his game plan works and it's safe, but for the fans he's not layin it all out there. He's doin just what it takes to hold onto the title.
Now if he steps up to Heavyweight to fight Crocop and Fedor like he says he wants to he'll really have his hands full.
I agree with the very last line in this statement, but as far as the main part....are you on something? I wouldnt care if I put EVERY fighter I fought in a rear-naked choke, as long as I have a winning streak, I'm bringing in big paychecks and I still have the belt around my waist, that's what I'm going to do. Theres nothing special about laying it all out on the line and getting your head knocked off. Any fighter can do that.
Lets just say that Chuck charges in on Rampage and gets KTFO. Do you think the fans are going to say, "Man, that Chuck is a true champion, look how he ran in there, right before getting knocked out!" NO.............they are going to say, "Damn, did you see Rampage Knock Chuck the F___ out????"
Mirko CroCop is a very exciting fighter to watch. His leg kicks are in a league of their own. The only downfall to fighting Chuck, is Chuck can KO anyone! Hell Randleman dropped Mirko with a hard left, so does anyone seriously think Chuck cant throw that looping left to end Mirkos night?
This fight is way too close to call, but CroCop wouldnt blow through Liddell like some people think. Liddell knows about CroCops legs kicks and he wouldnt just leave himself out there for one of them. His stance is too wide and he doesnt stand close enough to a fighter to take the risk of getting kicked like that. Hes going to throw his punches/combos and he backs off. Very smart IMO.
