Chuck Liddell might fight in the UFC again

May

A few weeks removed from personally retiring Chuck Liddell, Dana White seems to be backing off of those words a bit.

“Trust me when I tell you, he’s ready to retire,” White said. “He’s ready to retire. It’s the reason we love Chuck Liddell. He has nothing left to prove. He’s got a [expletive] load of money. He’s been a world champion. He’s beaten a who’s who of mixed martial arts fighters. He’s the most famous guy in the sport. There’s no reason to fight. He’s 40 years old, man. He and I had an agreement. We had a deal.

“Am I his father? Can I tell him not to fight? Absolutely not. If he still wants to fight, he can fight. I’m not saying, ‘It will never happen. It will never happen.’ But he made a deal with me. He’s never not listened to me. We’ll see what happens.”

Chuck Liddell still has one fight left on his UFC contract. He was brutally knocked out for the 2nd consecutive time at UFC 97.
