That's dumb then.
The Rampage fight was in 2003.
Chuck only started as pro in 1998.
So he went from green to pre-prime to prime to past-prime all within 5 years?
Chuck was only 34 in 2003, and he'd only had 15 fights. Not exactly war-torn, was he?
The Rampage fight was immediately after he knocked out Alistair Overeem in 3minutes, and before
he went on to record fantastic stoppages over Couture twice and Ortiz twice.
Saying he was no longer prime by the 1st Rampage fight??
