    A true master pugilist.

    Chuck Liddell was a terrific puncher with concussing power in his right and left hands. He punched with full commitment and was an expert at elongating his punches to maximize impact of the blows while using great leverage. In his youth, he had phenomenal hand speed, incomparable takedown defense, elusive defense, a granite chin, and educated feet as well.

    What a fighter....

    In his prime, he would be top 3 LHW of all time.

    Fellow fans, please help with gifs of his masterful displays of striking

    Hard hitter with a granite chin. Not master of anything. Randy took him to school in the first fight. He was also losing both those fights against metzger and overeem until he connected. He was good but this day and age his skills would not get him very far.

    I know you love Chuck but he isn’t top 3 LHW of all time. He isn’t even top 5.

    1. Jones
    2. DC
    3. Wand
    4. Shogun
    5. Rampage

    Either way, war Chuck! A true legend of the sport

    My first favourite fighter, great to watch, not the most technical in hindsight though.

    He got some serious skills. But i guess its not easy to see with a untrained eye.

    No he is not. He lost only to Rampage. He is actually 2-1 in Pride.

    Chuck was a bar brawler who wrestled in college. Far from "masterful" Just someone who hit hard and could take a hard hit and sprawl and brawl.

    I always thought he was overrated. Fortunate that Hendo, Rampage, Shogun, Lil Night and Wand were all not in the UFC during his prime. But he does have some good wins.

    one of chucks best abilities was KEEPING HIS EYES OPEN. dude understood even under pressure you can be firing off blind strikes


    best example is chuck vs babalu 2 when babalu swarms chuck and eats a nasty uppercut. i cant find a gif sorry

    Good fighter but would lose to modern LHWs. Jon Jones the goat would nothing short of dismantle Chick, he is very audacious for calling out Jones

    Chuck was the fucking man.

    What a great era of MMA: Hughes, Franklin and Chocolate L just tearing shit up. No ducking fights or not defending titles there.

    We just had a guy fighting for the belt who was nothing but a wild brawler with cardio for 1 round, limited takedown defence and clueless off of his back.
