If you watch chucks earlier fights. He has a very broad skill set. He sprawled, shot for takedowns, threw great high kicks, fished for subs, worked GnP. He’s just gotten stagnate ESPECIALLY with this game plans.
Hackleman is right he does cross train quite a bit…Shit he trained with Eddie Bravo for a little while and the “Half and Half” was something Liddell came up with… but his strategies are predictable, he’s become relient on shoddy skills designed for less well rounded athletes dependent on his ability to ‘catch’ someone.
So IMO, this change may ACTUALLY have a great effect on his game. If he USES the new skill set he develops which is yet to be seen. THAT is the biggest thing he has to deal with. Actually putting the shit he learns to use. He has the athletic ability.
I personally would have gone to Sityodtong, Boston or Xtreme Couture. It’s not like ATT is bad though lol…
If he had a great gameplanner (sorry hackleman) and it was just skillsets he needed to work on then he could shit like anderson silva and just go work on individual aspects… Silva just spent time in thailand to work on his thaiboxing and is spending time with Freddie Roach to sharpen up his boxing. But he already puts everything together so beautifully that he can work on just small attributes.
Chuck imo needs a fucking overhaul.
Good points. He should of done this shit 2-3 years ago.
