Jon Jones tells Chuck Liddell to 'Come get it'

Jon Jones tells Chuck Liddell to 'Come get it'

Liddell beat Randy Couture in their second meeting in 2005 to win the UFC light heavyweight championship, successfully defending it four times-including his second career win over Ortiz-before losing it to Rampage Jackson in 2007. Liddell stated on the show "It's a real thing". Unfortunately, it looks like a promotion already had Liddell's worst interests in mind, and that promotion is Golden Boy, who is lining up a fight between Liddell and fellow retirement circuit participant (and former Liddell blood rival) Tito Ortiz. What I do hope is that he is partnering up with Chuck Liddell and they are going to be partners other than have Chuck Liddell come in and fight.

After his retirement, Liddell was given an executive position with the UFC, but Endeavor, the UFC's new ownership group, eliminated Liddell's job near the end of 2016.

The once Light Heavyweight Champion made claims that he would not train for months and not fight somebody. I'm serious I'd like a shot at him, but we'll see.

The 48-year-old Liddell hasn't stepped in the Octagon since he was knocked senseless by Rich Franklin at UFC 115 almost eight years ago. "It'll be somebody else, one of the guys from my past probably, most likely, and we'll see where I'm at".

At the same time, the country would make preparations to restart its nuclear program, he said . The U.S. leader accused Iran of creating " bedlam and death " in the region.

The Iceman returning would be very bad on many levels. Liddell says the only reason for a comeback fight is simply missing the lifestyle of a fighter.

If Oscar De La Hoya is not the man to get Lidell back into competition and if Dana White does not budge on his position, Jon Jones has personally stepped forward to give Chuck Lidell the opportunity he's been asking for whenever the legend is ready to make the commute to Albuquerque on Jones' dime. Liddell knocked out Ortiz in both of their blockbuster bouts in 2004 and 2006 respectively.

De la Hoya, the head of Golden Boy Promotions, has expressed his interest in promoting MMA and Liddell confirmed that his return bout very well could take place under the Golden Boy Promotions banner, possibly in November in either California or Las Vegas. Ortiz took to Twitter to announce the rumors are true. What an interesting day for the MMA world, one of the pioneers of the sport seems to be returning.
