"Towards the end of his career I begged him not to so much and he still wouldn't," says Hackleman. "He would not stop bangin'. He banged 'till the end. He couldn't help it. We would spend hours and hours and hours [on it]. We put the little thing down between his chin and his shoulders to keep his chin down. To keep his hands up, I'd put weights in his hands, stuff under his arms. Hours and hours and he would drill it, drill it, drill it. The second he hit someone and just saw that little spark in the eye, that killer instinct would take over and he'd drop his hands to his hips, put his chin up in the air and just start swinging for the knockout. He'd forget everything.

 

"When his chin wasn't quite what it was? He didn't want to change his style. We didn't want to turn into a more cerebral game. He wanted to go out a banger and he did."

 

 

LOL He would not stop bangin'! He banged 'till the end. He couldn't help it. We would spend hours and hours and hours on it.

 

Hah bloodyelbow will never top that headline.

I listened to that. Was good. He said if Chuck ever tried to fight again, he would take a bat to Liddell's legs because he just couldn't stand to see him take any more punishment. And was an interesting personality, too. An MMA fighter/coach/trainer who says that he hates watching fights because he doesn't like to see people get hurt. Lol. It was weird, but good.

It was true...chuck got that feeling and just when all berserker the second he clipped you

 

His lacking of evolution at the end just proved to me more he was never the LHW goat (even be4 jones got into the debate)...his style was his style and if the situation called for something else like with Rampage he could not do it

 

Dude was an all-time great but not GOAT level great to me he's the Eli Manning of his time...he wins often...beats some good guys but was never at anyone time the best guy walkin'

Bret Favre. Chuck's the Bret Favre of his time.

If you see them show Chuck sitting in the crowd inbetween rounds, you can see his eyes, and they are totally in that octagon in place of one of the fighters. Obviously it's time to hang it up, but even now if he had the option, he'd be back in there in a heartbeat.
