Chuck Liddell comments on Silva’s move to 205

Former UFC light heavyweight champion, Chuck “the Iceman” Liddell recently sat down with our friends over at MMANews. He had the following to say about Anderson Silva’s move up to the 205 pound weight division.

“Anderson Silva is a tough fighter. If anyone can move up and do it I think he could do it. It’s another 20 lbs to him, so it’s a big jump. I think there are a lot of good fights for him at 205…Sure, it could be a good fight but I think I’m too big for him. He’s a tough fighter and I have all the respect in the world for him but I think I’d be too much for him.”

Liddell went on to say that he felt that he deserved a title shot should he get by Rashad Evans at UFC 88.
