Fri, May 25, 2007 UFC 71.... I was 17 years old.... Watching Wanderlei clips on youtube in my free time... and Chuck was already the UFC GOAT at the time IMO...... I had all my buddies over. The parents were out of town. Ordered a couple Pizzas. Had a nice 30 pack of the best beer you can get. Busch Light. Ordered the PPV without permission from my parents. Like an absolute boss. Houston Alexander had just sent Jardine into orbit. I'm not sure if he actually ever landed We were pumped. Chuck Liddell was kind of invincible in most of our minds then. Though we all knew how good Rampage was and that he beat Chuck in Pride..... I am not sure his first fight in the UFC vs Marvin Eastman led any of us to believe he would beat Chuck. But Chuck floated that left hand. He left it hanging. And Rampage had an amazing shell defense. His boxing was the best it had ever been. He would have blocked that punch if it went to the head instead of the body. He rolled with it beautifully and countered with the cleanest right hook I have ever seen in my life. One of the first times I remembered being truly in awe from a fight outcome. The Iceman wasn't invincible. Not even on the feet. And Rampage showed the giant hole in Chucks defense. He hung his hands. And that left hand didn't come up after he threw it.
