    I'm of the minority opinion that Chuck is overrated. The majority of his career has been spent fighting grapplers with mediocre striking as witnessed by his defeats over the following:

    Tito Ortiz

    Randy Couture

    Kevin Randleman

    Renato Sobral

    Jeremy Horn (Natural Middle Weight)

    Liddell has done well against some strikers like Alistair Overeem, Vitor Belfort, and most recently Wanderlei Silva but every single one of those fights were battles and it was shown in his loss to mid-leveler Keith Jardine that striking is definitely his weakness. Go back to his fight against Quinton Jackson in Pride and you will see a thoroughly beaten Ice Man that had no answers for the technical striking that Quinton showcased. Fastforward to their second meeting and Liddell was heavily criticized for his striking that seemed greatly outclassed.

    Don't get me wrong, Liddell can be pretty exciting and he definitely comes to fights ready to brawl, but his time at the top of the food chain is over.

    Right now I am really impressed that despite the fact that he wont be fighting due to injury he is still going over to London to make an appearance at UFC 85. That is a class act, and the kind of person fans love to root for.

    Aside from his character, his fighting speaks for itself. While age is starting to catch up to him and he isnt invincible like he was for a few years he is still one of the most entertaining men out there. You always know what you are going to get when you watch Chuck fight.

    Don't know anything about him as a person, but he's one hell of a fighter and a great role model for MMA. I think h im and Dana certainly have a better relationship than, say, Tito and Dana or Barack and Hillary.

    awesome fighter, good takedown defense, good striking, knockout power, strikes at weird angles, personality is laid back, I think machida and rampage would beat him almost every time, Dana White wants to bone him.
