Chuck Liddell Is 48 Years Old, But He Plans More Fights After November 24th!
When Chuck Liddell was defeated to Rich Franklin at UFC 115 on June 12, 2010, it looked like the end of his career. Yet, he confirmed his MMA return in May 2018. His fight versus Tito Ortiz is set for Saturday, November 24th, under Golden Boy banner, in Inglewood, California. Oscar De La Hoya promises monstrous paydays for both fighters!
Chuck Liddell has a comment for everybody who claimed he had looked slow at his open workout last week. According to Liddell, his shape is great, and he hits hard as always. (via TMZ.com)
“I hit as hard as I ever have,” Chuck says … “I’m throwing fast and I’m moving and I’m in great shape.”
Chuck Liddell also threatened he would smash Rampage Jackson after a win over Tito Ortiz! “The Iceman” wants to revenge his two losses. “Rampage” won their first clash via TKO at PRIDE Final Conflict 2003 on November 9, 2003. Then Jackson went on to stopped Liddell for the second time on May 26, 2007, at UFC 71, via outstanding first-round right hook KO!
Chuck Liddell even created the list of potential rivals for his next fight.
“If I perform the way I think I’m going to on Saturday then I’m definitely going to be looking for another fight after this,” Liddell told TMZ. “There’s a lot of guys. (Chael) Sonnen’s been running his mouth, there’s always ‘Rampage’ still in it. Wanderlei (Silva) is still in it, Vitor (Belfort) has been talking about it, so we got a lot of guys out there who are possibilities.”
Chuck confirmed money was not the main reason for his return. He fights because he loves it.
“My bank account’s fine. My house is nice. My life is great … but I love fighting.”
Chuck Liddell has a score of two wins and zero losses versus Tito Ortiz. “The Iceman” knocked “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” out cold at UFC 47 in 2004, and earned another TKO victory at UFC 66 back in 2006.
In September of this year, Liddell said he would retire if Ortiz wins. Do you think Chuck will bash Tito for the third time on Saturday night? Do you expect Chuck Liddell Vs Rampage Jackson 3 soon?
