Meh, you guys are making too much of this.  I'm sure he didn't do anything out of the ordinary before this fight.  He got caught with a hook square on the chin, it could happen to anyone. 
If your out partying until 4am you are not going to be at your very best. Maybe he would still have got knocked out but at the end of the day the week before the biggest fight of your life you shouldn't be out clubbing.

How do you know he was out till 4am?  What if Rampage was out till 5am?

What has Rampage hypothetically going out till 5am got to do with anything. At the end of the day, Chuck has been KO'd twice by Rampage now. Shogun Rua is by far the best LHW in MMA.

UHHH...he knocked Chuck out? Could have been partying harder than him?  It doesn't matter what either of them did.  Liddell was the same as he's always been and got knocked to the ground, pounded and couldn't defend himself.  End of. 

Shogun Rua?  Wrong, Rampage is right now.  He's got the only belt that matters and until Rua takes it from him (or anyone else), it's Quinton.  I suspect this fight will happen after Dan Henderson fight Rampage.

Last time Rua fought Rampage, he f***ing dominated him. Rua isn't even int he UFC so how can he get the belt from Rampage? Rampage is good, but he isn't as good as Shogun, or Wanderlei Silva for that matter.

I know he was out until 4am and Rampage wasn't because their are articles on UFCMania, UFCcountdown, MMAWeekly and virtually every other UFC/MMA site showing pictures of him at all the big Vegas clubs.

Some more news on the london show for all interested. It will take place on September 8th at the O2.

The main event will be Mirko "Cro Crop" Filipovic against an unnamed opponent. Michael Bisping and Jess Liaudin will also feature on the card.

I don't think the announcement was shown on the UK show. Got to remember the version we get is edited in some places.

Just to add to that in the LA Times today Liddell has 'fessed up that he was out clubbing every night that week including the night before the fight, although he says that wasn't the reason for his defeat.

But those who watch UFC already knew that.  :D 

Just taking the p*ss, Andy mate.  Rampage has the belt, doesn't matter about the past.  I'll agree with you when Rua takes it from him.

You're a fan, Andy?  I just want to see good fights, most of the time I don't care who wins.  Didn't care who won saturday. 

Well, that's a lie, I like seeing GSP do well as with Bisping.

Rua, is the best fighter I've ever seen, apart from Fedor.

How many times have you seen them?  I think it's impossible to label this guy "the best" or "unbeatable".  That's why the sport is so great, anyone can beat anyone else.  There are fighters who are better than others, but it's hard to label one guy, "The Best". 

I agree, they're both good and can't wait to see them fight in the UFC.

New info on the London event in September. Mirko "Cro Crop" Filopovic is no longer the main event.

The main event will know be Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs. Dan Henderson for the UFC Light-Heavyweight Championship.

Let me just say solely because of that fight I will be there.

Can this be renamed?  I keep forgetting what it stands for and opening the thread in the mistaken belief I might be interested.  After doing this a few times, I now know to avoid the thread, but keep forgetting what it stands for and opening it to remind myself.

Hasn't been announced yet.

Also Mirko "Cro Crop" Filopovic will likely face Cheick Kongo in London.

Ultimate fighter finale on sunday. Penn v Pulver, Diaz v Manny.

Bravo is s***, the haven't even broadcast the second semi yet, but they are advertising the final, so they've spoilt the second semi.

He's certainly scary in his bare knuckle guise. I wouldn't feel safe even with a crowbar. :(
