Shogun, I know very well who Mauricio is. I can not wait for him to start fighting in the UFC and he is a great fighter. I love Pride also, but to say Chuck in overrated is ridiculous. He has been fighting the top level in the UFC for his entire reign, not dodging the best like Ortiz did.
So what you are really saying is that no UFC fighter is that great because Pride fighters are better. I will simply point you to Cro-Cop's (who I love and can't believe he lost
) latest 'KTFO'. I love Pride, really, have been watching it sor years and having some crossovers is a dream come true.
So Chuck has been fighting ground fighters mostly, Oh well, they are the ones who are at the top of the heap. Should he not fight the #1 contender because their style doesn't match his? They are the #1 contenders, what style they are is irrelevant. Truth be told, no one can stand with Chuck, so only the ground fighters really have a chance against him. His takedown defense is the best in the game, bar none. I can't wait to see Hollywood and Shogun, and the Axe Murderer is my all time favorite fighter, period. Personally I think Wanderlei will take Chuck apart, but that's a different thread...
