Former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell stated in a recent interview that he doesn’t plan to return anytime soon. “I’ll fight sometime in the spring. Probably I’ll go for a fight in the spring so we’ll see, we’ll see who’ll they [the UFC] put me up against.”
With losses in three of out his last four fights, some are wondering what more the former champion has to prove.
After Rashad Evans gets his title shot against Forrest Griffin and Quinton Jackson gets a third shot at Wanderlei Silva, things in the UFC’s light heavyweight division might clear up.
There are also a few other light heavyweight fights to keep your eye on as well, as Lyoto Machida takes on Thiago Silva and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua returns to the Octagon against Mark Coleman.
The light heavyweight picture in the UFC should be a little clearer by the time spring rolls around.
