Jon Jones Snaps Back At Chuck Liddell

Chuck Liddell Officially Out Of Retirement, Vowing To Fight Tito Ortiz This November

Chuck Liddell Officially Out Of Retirement, Vowing To Fight Tito Ortiz This November

Why would any promoter or state athletic commission even entertain the idea of a 48-year old Chuck Liddell getting back in the cage, even against a 43-year old Tito Ortiz?

The news and headlines didn't stop there from Liddell, who went on to say during his interview with Helwani that he believes he needs two or three fights then he'd like to take on former UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones.

"I miss it. I never stopped missing it", he said. And I kinda hadn't really thought about it much.

"I will fight again, yeah, if we can get a deal together with somebody that makes sense, yeah."
Am I going to do all of this and not fight?' Oh no, we had to have somebody backing up, and if it doesn't work out with him, I'm (still) going to give it a shot.

Why's that? Well, if you missed it, yesterday Liddell appeared on "The MMA Hour", and he relayed that he is officially, ending his retirement.

In the opinion of Phil Baroni, an MMA veteran of Liddell's vintage, however, it's none of our business what Liddell does.

While the ridiculous match-up would nearly never happen with Jones facing a potentially lengthy suspension from USADA and Liddell out of the UFC and likely never to return, it appears that the longtime UFC fan favorite will still be able to compete in his home state on one serious condition. Worry about yourself. It's America. However, The Iceman was targeting the biggest names of today and claimed he wants Jon Jones after two warm-up fights. If I can't fight, if I don't feel like I can perform or go out there and perform, I wouldn't. Even if you don't think Liddell shouldn't be fighting again, you have to admit that a third fight between "The Iceman" and "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" is a big fight at a time in the sport where stars are few and far between. "I will administratively grant him a license". "We will see. Just, match styles".

"Old Chuck has been calling me out for years!". I normally try to respect my elders but if you want it, come get it. "I'd literally fly you out to Albuquerque this weekend", Jones wrote on Twitter.

Jones followed up by proclaiming he "might want to test the strength of that jaw" before jumping back into the fire.
