Hmmmmm, it' going to be interesting but I don't think it is going the distance....2 rounds at best.
Knock out or Tap out, no decision! My guess is a knock out because both guys are great sluggers, fast on their feet and have a lot to prove and lose. Chuck is great but I would not be suprised if Quinton won.

I think the fight itself is so, so. Mainly because of what Peter said above, it could be quick & fun to watch, but nothing unexpected from either guy because both have knock out ability. I think the significance of the fight is what really makes it. If chuck wins he might just be UFC's greatest champ ever, he took all comers, knocked them out, and wasn't afraid of anyone. I mean, who else is left after Rampage, yes there are always contenders, but what names are left? If Randy vs. Chuck made Chuck, then this fight could seal his legacy.

Mauricio "Shogun" Rua would beat Chuck IMO. Rumor has it he just signed with the UFC...

I still would like to see the Wanderlei Silva VS. Liddell match materialize.

We got teased with it but then it fell through.

He hasn't beaten Fedor. I hope that match happens at some point.

Mauricio is good. It's just a question of being able to handle jumping up in weight and not doing it too fast just to chase after Chuck.
Here is a link showing Mauricio giving Quinton a "knee" sandwich.:yikes:
