    My buddy offered me this last night and i'm really tempted even though liddell is the official underdog?

    what do you think?

    :dunno: I like Silva more than Chuck but unfortunately, Silva's forward moving aggressive striking is perfect for Chuck's looping counter punches. Silva leaves a lot of room for opening shots and always seems to be moving forward, Chuck will be looking for that counter punch hook that will most likely land. I hope Silva comes in and decides to play the MMA game rather than the strictly stand up game with Chuck, he'll win then.

    yeah, if he fights smart and gets chuck cornered and can clinch with him its over.

    If he just runs after chuck he might get hurt.

    Flashback to 9/22 where everybody said the same thing about Jardine and look what happened.

    The odds are virtually even with Silva at -130 and Liddell at -105.

    $50 is not worth the time to sign up and wait time to cash out.

    based off of what? I think machida is the favorite for a reason. He has wins over accomplished fighters which aren't just flash knockouts

    hahahahha, look at Terry's accomplishments against 205 fighters, and look at Machidas. Machida has never beaten a ranked 205ers. Terry has KO'd two in the past year.

    when was the last time silva last fought in the octagon? When was the last time silva fought? I know chuck is coming off of 2 loses, but he has more octagon experience. As much as I would like to see wandy win, I give the edge to chuck.

    I love Wandy, I think hes the better fighter and i hope he wins but I think Chuck really has everything going for him in this fight. Wandys usual style plays right into chucks style, Wandy might have some ring rust he'll need to shake off, and Chuck has all the cage/ufc experience. If there were soccer kicks and knees allowed in this fight id definitely give it to wandy, but as it is now, it's definitely going to be a standup fight; and Chuck does best against aggressive strikers who chase him.
