Chuck Liddell’s handler Dana White makes it known that Chuck Liddell is done fighting.
I'm wondering why Wanderlei Silva is not on the chopping block like Chuck Liddell is. Wandy has also lost 4 of his last 5 fights and 3 of those fights by KO. Could it be the fact that Wandy has an incredible 23 (T)KO's to his record? If Wandy happens to lose to Rich Franklin @ UFC 99 in Germany, then that would have him lossing 5 of last 6 fights and that is worse that Chuck's current lossing streak. Would Dana White and the UFC let Wandy still fight in the middleweight division after a possible loss to Franklin in June?
I do think Wandy will be on the chopping block but Wandy is only 32 years old. Chuck is 39 going on 40 this year. Thats the difference with how much more chuck is being asked to retire. I really think Wanderlei will bounce back with a knock out over Rich but we will see. The ufc rules dont favor Wandys style. Wanderlei with the least amount of rules possible is at his best. The ufc is making the rules too safe and it pisses me off. But the chicken shit society we live in mostly dont even like that mma is legal. Its all a big joke.
it has nothing to do with that, chuck could still fight and beat alot of people even some top guys if he caught them. there are plenty of people that have been ko'ed way more than chuck he was really only out cold in the evans fight guys in k-1 get ko'ed all the time back and forth its more dana trying to protect chuck and his legacy
ya i really hope he beats rich even tho i like rich. it would be way sad to see two legends like chuck and wandy both be forced into retirement so close to eachother.
I think at a new weightclass they may give Wandy a little more leeway. At least I hope so. But what happened to Franklin moving up to lightheavy?
The fight with Wandy and Franklin is going to be at a catch weight like 190 or something. Rich is going to stay at 205 lbs. after this fight.
