Liddell caught him with a right hand and pretty much knocked him out,he landed a couple of punches on Corture after he hit the floor.Pretty quick fight.

Yes, it is.

But this isn't a boxing thread.

And frankly, I'm surprised. I didn't figure Chucky could beat him...

I was suprised too.I think Randy caught Chuck by surprise in the first fight when he kept it off the ground and was striking him and then moved to the ground and pound.In this fight he never got the chance to really get into a flow of striking are ground attacks.Randy took a thumb in the eye but I don't know how much that affected the fight.

I wasn't surprised that chuck beat him but I was very surprised at how quick it ended.

I really liked Randy better but Chuck's a badass so it wasn't a shocking end..... just quick.

Randy was cool about the whole thing though and gave Chuck all the respect he deserved. I can't wait to see Randy fight again.

I wondered about that too. I'm sure it had some effect. I don't care who you are, a thumb stuck in your eye is going to change both the way you see and the amount of fight in you.

Regardless, it was a good fight short or not.

Im surprised Corture was content with going toe-to-toe with Chuck. I kept waiting for Corture to shoot-in and take the fight to the ground.

Awesome, I figured Lidell might win. Wish I had seen the fight live.
