Igor. No question.

I feel anyone who picks chuck has not watched many Igor matches. The man was something.

We've been through this. Igor was absolutely WRECKING top heavies and had insane power. Coupled with far better head movement, leg attacks and defensive fundamentals, he would definitely be the favorite over Liddell (both in their primes). Chuck was awesome, but he was way too open for someone as accurate, technical and powerful as Igor.

I'm thinking Chuck, due to his reach advantage over Igor. Both were good strikers, but Igor would have given up a lot of reach.

Chuck would shoot right away and then have Igor thinking TD and then bombs would fly and Igor would get slept. 

When Igor fought high level competition, he usually lost. 

Great fighter, tough as nails, made people believe in strikers, Hall of Famer, but Chuck's combo of wrestling and stiking and big time victories win it for him.

Chuck would be too proud/stupid to shoot a TD; Hell, it'd be too late for him to try that tactic IMO. He'd be sleeping.

Igor would have been such a shock for Chuck, as Chuck was used to facing grapplers, and even then he could be outstruck.

Chuck NEVER beat a seriously dangerous striker who was on form.

Wrong about Igor wrecking top HWs. He fought a few top HWs, and except for Kerr, (and Goodridge if he counts)he lost to all of them.

Chuck's wins over Randy, Vitor, Randleman, Tito, Overeem are all more significant than anything Igor has on his record

It's really not though. Igor never beat anyone close to the level of prime Liddell. He was great for his time, but it's about as laughable as people saying Sakuraba would be a force in today's WW division. Nostalgia is a hell of a thing.

Igor would win.. Most likely in a brutal fashion.

In fact, I feel sorry for anyone who had to battle NHB with a prime Igor Phone Post 3.0

What striker on Igor's level did Chuck beat in his prime?

Even RANDY outstruck him whilst Chuck was in HIS prime!

He went life and death with a washed up Wand, got pole-axed by Rich Franklin (and Chuck was in MEAN shape for that fight, and was winning it), got schooled and KO'd by Rampage...

Fact is, is that Chuck never beat ANYONE thoroughly on Igor's level when it came to striking.

Igor's chin was better. Chuck had a great jaw, too but his boxing was pretty weak & Igor has shown some good hands & footwork against Goodridge, Bueno, Schrijber & Satake.

Don't get me wrong it would've been an amazing fight & Chuck could win with the right gameplan but the only people I have seen beat a prime Igor in standup were Hoost, Crocop & Telligman.

The 1st two I don't even have to mention there greatness but Telligman would make some of you think twice. He turned into a pretty good boxer & his height & jab/cross fucked up Igor's night all day. Tools that Chuck simply refuses to use, but who knows what would happen that night.
