Horse shit. You discredited a long list of good fighters because they were grapplers, clearly forgetting that mixed martial arts is not just a striking match. How many strikers did those "grapplers" overcome on the road before and after hitting the chuck lidell road block? Chuck lidell being able to use striking to beat them depended on more than an ability to throw punches, it also consisted of an ability to defend take downs and get back up from takedowns, the latter of which few other fighters can match chucks ability at
You call him a hype job, even though he owns 2 wins over a current p4p and the number 6 all time p4p'er on your very own lists
You only used the lucky punch argument once eh? So that means i cant respond to it? Too bad chump, your the one who raised it.
The fact is, that anyone else with that resume would be a hall of famer. But because its chuck, a guy whom you seem to have a personal dislike for, you dump an excessive amount of shit on his accomplishments. The UFC can promote a guy heavily, but it cant forcibly manufacture a fan base. Your irrationally biased towards him, and thats cool so long as you can call a spade a spade and admit. But you cant, so you sit on the hater side of the fence with all the other numbskulls. Enjoy the company
I don't know where you get off tossing out personal insults, but you can put it up your ass to compliment that cum you've been taking on the side. I NEVER discredited any fighters because they were "grapplers" dumbshit, I discredited Chuck Liddell's KNOCKOUT wins over GRAPPLERS. People act like KO'ing a fucking GRAPPLER (Randy Couture) in a STAND-UP war is some kind of fucking accomplishment. Is KO'ing Jeremy Horn, Babalu, Vernon White, and Tito Ortiz REALLY so goddamn impressive that you've gotta chuck some cum from Liddell like you're his personal cum dumpster?
Chuck Liddell has ZERO ground game, and ZERO stand-up skills. He's got ungodly power in his hands which are useful only when fighting grapplers who can't take him down and beat him on the ground. Chuck gets OWNED every time he fights a skilled (Rampage) or semi-skilled (Keith Jardine) striker, and occassionally drops matches to fighters with NO stand-up game (Randy Couture, Jeremy Horn.)
He struggled, and narrowly defeated, a shot-to-hell Wanderlei Silva who was throwing nothing but bolo shots that put even Chuck's looping-ass punches to shame. Sorry, tough guy, that don't come close to cutting it for me.
Chuck is a top-10 all-time UFC
fighter, but he is neither a current top-10 fighter, nor is he a top-10 all-time MMA fighter. If he is, give me your fucking list, now or ever, and tell me who you put him in front of.
You're stuck on the UFC jizz, son. I may be a "hater," but I'd rather be a hater than a blind ass nuthugging sheep who only eats the curd spewed down my throat from an overhyped product of the system.
