I doubt it, with all the new LH's from pride and even Houston looking great so far, I don't think his 1 dimensional fighting style will be able to beat alot of these guys. Rampage exposed him as very beatable.That being said he holds 2 impressive wins over couture.

As long as Rampage is the Champ of course not cause its proven Rampage is Chucks father but I expect Shogun to get a title shot and beat Rampage next year and Chuck will probablly retire Wanderlei so I expect a Shogon-Liddell fight next year not picking him but I think his chances are better vs Shogun.

Not at 205 no.....Not in the UFC no...

UFC's 205 is going to be pride dominated from now on in fro the next 3 years at least, with Quinton,Shogun and Hendo all destroying Chuck.

Nah, they're actually about half and half, but I doubt Hendo would beat Chuck anyway, and I think a prime Chuck has the skills to beat Shogun, but probably not the Chuck of today.
not the chuck of today?

so he's past his prime as well, so the chuck of when? he's not that far off beating couture, or did that loss suddenly make him shot.

Chuck will absolutely destroy Jardine however, and im inclined to agree with above in saying he is more suited to fighting Shogun than Hendo or rampage, but i dont think he wins against Rua anyway, but their would be a chance, however slim it is

I don't think he walks through jardine, I think that will be a good fight and I wouldn't be surprised to see Jardine upset him.

I could see Chuck being champ again. Style wise, he doesn't match up with Rampage very well, but I don't buy the idea that he could never beat Jackson. When you punch like Chuck, no one is totally safe in the ring against him.

If he beats Jardine (which he almost certainly will) and then Wanderlei (which is very possible), then he'll likely get another shot at the title.
