RIGHT. I didn't look @ this as a science.... My opinion sprang from Lyoto's > technical skills including, your lingo, speed, distancing & timing.... Both had equal striking power when Lyoto is on his mark, though I would give Chuck the edge....
Chuck depended an awful lot defensively on typical kickboxer body movement & backing away.... I doubt he could have kept pace with Lyoto's offensive moves, which tactically include his defensive counter game....
