Chuck Liddell Un-Retires at Age 48, Seriously
Why Chuck? Why?
I mean, I get having the competitive spirit and wanting to be in the octagon, but seriously, this is a horrible idea. Chuck Liddell is coming out of retirement and he plans on fighting. What's the first step in announcing that you are un-retiring after almost 8 years of not fighting? Admitting you don't are what people think.
So who does Liddell want to fight?
The first fight Liddell is shooting for would be a fight against rival Tito Ortiz in November. Of course, this is a fighter who hasn't fought in almost a decade, and wasn't even competitive when he retired. His overall record in MMA is 21 and 8. Five of those losses came in his final 6 fights. Here is how his final 6 fights have gone.
- May 26, 2007 - LOSS to Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson, first round TKO
- September 22, 2007 - LOSS to Keith Jardine, split decision
- December 29, 2007 - WIN against Wanderlei SIlva, unanimous decision
- September 6, 2008 - LOSS to Rashad Evans, second round KO
- April 18, 2009 - LOSS to Mauricio Rua, first round TKO
- June 12, 2010 - LOSS to Rich Franklin, first round KO
It wasn't even like his fights were going the distance. He was getting knocked out. But hey, I'll bet I end up watching the fight against Ortiz. If not for anything other than that nostalgic feeling.
