An interesting feature from MMAjunkie.com on Chuck Liddell as he gets ready for his upcoming coaching stint on The Ultimate Fighter.
Liddell claims he has one more run at the title left. He compared his situation to when Randy Couture came back to win the heavyweight title.
"He came back, and he's still fighting. He won the heavyweight title. I just needed some time off," Liddell told MMAjunkie.com.
So, does anyone buy that Liddell can recapture the light heavyweight championship? I love the guy and hope he wins a few fights, but a title is out of his reach.
The big difference with Couture's return and championship win is that it came at a time when the UFC's heavyweight division was at its weakest. The UFC's light heavyweight division is stacked, which would make things much, much harder on Liddell.
I definitely don't agree with Dana White that he's too old to fight effectively. If White is going to let a guy like Mark Coleman fight, then Liddell should be able to fight until he's done.
But, at the same time, let's not kid ourselves. While it would make for a great story, Liddell's days of being a UFC champ are behind him.
