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??


You misunderstood me. He hadn't peaked yet. He was a late peaking fighter. Do you consider Pac's loss to Morales a peak Manny? No.
