I don't see Chuck's counter striking back pedaling style working against Igor.

Chuck got hit a lot in his day... Some of his best KO's were the result of a guy that thought they had him in trouble getting caught charging in. He also used to take one to give one.

I think if Igor clips him it's at the beginning of an explosive, devastating combo. I give it to Igor in a fire fight. Can't rely on countering a guy who will either sleep or stun you with any solid contact. Phone Post 3.0

Bobby Lupo - Good point about Tiger White. He was putting it on Chuck.

I think Chucks wrestling is where the fight is most uneven. He could brawl and take Igor down if it got to be too much. Phone Post 3.0

Kerr had a hard time taking Igor down at first, and a basically fresh Coleman had a hard time taking a two fights in Igor down. 

Igor accomplished more overall in his career by having the longest undefeated streak in legitimate MMA against what counted as top competition at the time and beating BJJ black belts(though had retired by the time competition was as diverse in skill as it was in Chuck's time), and stylistically matches up very well with Chuck. Chuck got caught against much, much lesser strikers than Igor, and if he got caught against Igor he was going to sleep.

Igor didn't have to worry about Coleman or Kerr landing bolos. He could focus 80% on tdd. Chuck is too multi dimensional Phone Post 3.0

LOL! Yeah, Chuck showed some killer submissions...

Dude only used his wrestling when was in trouble, and it's too late to do that once Igor hits you.

Igor had very good TDD and was never laid on, getting Igor down wasn't going to be easy, Igor just didn't use offensive wrestling. But neither did Chuck, he only used his wrestling to keep standing. He didn't use it against Wand or against Vitor, two strikers with lots of power who did bad against wrestlers. 

 

Chuck could not get Igor down, and wouldn't try to going on his history.

He most certainly used it against Wanderlei. Phone Post 3.0
