I hope Chuck Liddell never retires. Maybe I should say, I hope Chuck Liddell never retires and means it. I could see The Iceman fight once a week for the rest of my life and never get tired of the dude’s mohawk. Dude looks like he was an extra in Gummo. I would like to see the guy that takes a look at Chuck Liddel on the street and says ‘Yeah, I can take that guy‘. Actually I would like to see that guy after he says ‘Yeah, I can take that guy‘. It would be the best before/after pic this year, maybe even better than the before picture of my thumb and the one after UFC undisputed as dropped. The dude is everything my mother told me not to be in elementary school (which is probably why my childhood consisted of khaki pants and Choose your own adventure books).
So it’s heavily rumored and more than likely confirmed that Chuck Liddell is going to make a comeback (again) against Rich Franklin. Chuck Liddell and Brett Favre loves comebacks. Hell, there comebacks love comebacks. The fight is planned to occur in the fall and would happen as a co-main event (or possibly an undercard). Regardless, it’s always good to see your boy in the ring. Even though Dana White has said that he would prefer if Chuck never got back in the cage again, it’s sort of hard to turn down a dude that can easily make you an absurd amount of loot for a fight, regardless of the outcome. The dude is and has always been the face of UFC, and I’ve already set aside $59.95 to watch Chuck Liddell (and his mohawk) step in the cage for his 23rd fight in UFC. Also, If they ever did another Mortal Kombat movie and chose not to cast Chuck Liddell as Sub-Zero, I think we all need to get out in the streets and protest (Iran style). [Source]
