I felt so bad for him to see him go out like that...he is a great person and a legend and when you see that as a fighter, you get a small glimpse of your own demise in the sport.There were no changes...I knew before that before the fight because an inside source told me that was just a front.

If Chuck's whole new training thing was a charade, that is pretty scandalous, but people who trained with him for this camp say he trained very hard. Are they part of this "front" too?
Either way, I agree it was sad to see Chuck go out like that. As soon as I saw how slow Chuck was, I knew it was a matter of time. In the past, watching Chuck gave you a feeling of imminent doom for his opponent. Against Shogun it felt like I was just waiting for a disaster. I don't want to see that again, and neither does Dana.
That's why Chuck is done.
