Talking at last weekend’s Boston UFC Fan Expo, Chuck Liddell was non-committal about his future saying that he wasn’t sure whether he was ready to retire. When asked about a possible return to the Octagon, the former World Lightheavyweight Champion said that “I don’t know yet…I haven’t taken too much time to think about it. I’ve been traveling. I’ve only been home two days in a row twice since my last fight, so I really haven’t settled down…I get to be home for a month here coming up, so I’m going to go home and kind of figure out what I’m doing now.”
UFC President and Liddell’s former manager Dana White has twice benched Liddell and said in July that if he insisted on making a comeback to mixed martial arts action that he would have to release him. While making it clear that he wasn’t interested in fighting outside the UFC, Liddell painted a less black and white picture say that White had “really kind of left it up to me…I really haven’t thought about it. Until I figure out what I’m doing and decide what I want to do, there’s no reason to think about that”.
Worryingly, Liddell seems obilivious to his 1-5 record in his previous six fights, saying that he’d fight “I’ll fight whoever…Whatever it takes to get back to a world title, if I decide to continue”.
