Jon Jones vs. Chuck Liddell? Please, No!

Chuck Liddell Officially Out Of Retirement, Vowing To Fight Tito Ortiz This November Nearly eight years after his last fight, 48-year old Chuck Liddell wants to make a comeback

"I never stopped missing it". "And I kinda hadn't really thought about it much", Liddell said (thanks to MMA Fighting for the quotes). In other words, it's official - UFC Hall of Fame fighter and one of the best to ever do it Chuck Liddell is ending his retirement.

"In my mind, I would like two good warm-up fights, and I'd like a shot at Jon Jones".

After appearing on The MMA Hour this week, The Iceman announced his comeback as Chuck Liddell sat down with Ariel Helwani to reveal that he is officially coming out of retirement and targeting a third bout against long-time rival, Tito Ortiz.

But at the same time, the reality is Liddell is 48, he's coming off of a long layoff, and he was brutally knocked out in the last three fights he had and in five of his last six fights. 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.

"I will fight again", Liddell said, point blank, on the show (transcribed by MMA Fighting). We should be concerned since we care about Liddell as one of the all-time legends of the sport, and we are, but at the same time, if this is what Liddell wants and he's cleared to fight by the athletic commission, then there's no much else we can say.

Mom allegedly stabbed 11-year-old, fled with 7-year
Authorities have found the woman and her 7-year-old daughter after she allegedly kidnapped her and stabbed another daughter. Police said it was unclear where Ahmad may be headed but that she had lived in Tennessee and Texas in the past.

Two of the most iconic light-heavyweights in the history of the UFC were involved in a rather unusual back-and-forth following Liddell's intention to return to MMA. If Chuck wants to fight, let him fight. I am serious; I'd like a shot at hime. "I will fight again", Liddell declared.

The report stated that when licensing fighters older than 40 (Liddell is now 48), the CSAC follows guidelines from the Association of Ringside Physicians (ARP). If I can't fight, if I don't feel like I can perform or go out there and perform, I wouldn't.

That means we could legitimately be seeing Liddell vs. Ortiz III later this year, and from the sound of it, the fight may just take place in California.

Jones has been sitting out on a USADA suspension following a second failed drug test after knocking out Daniel Cormier at UFC 217 and is facing a four-year suspension.
