Chuck Liddell returning from retirement, says he'd like to fight Jon Jones

He came right out and said it to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour: "I will fight again". Am I not going to fight?

In fact, he has yet another former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion on his mind, a man who, before his repeated criminal and drug offenses, was arguably one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time, Jon "Bones" Jones.

Apart from absorbing gases, it would have emanated all kinds of radiations that would have made life on Earth impossible. Wolf said that the reason is that the large amount of gases it takes in every day causes much heat and friction.

Eight years after hanging up his gloves for good, former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell recently announced on Monday's MMA Hour; that he'll be fighting again and is in negotiation to take part in a trilogy fight against a rival, Tito Ortiz, possibly promoted by Golden Boy CEO Oscar De La Hoya. "I'm serious I'd like a shot at him, but we'll see", said the former light heavyweight champion. His last win in the last decade (yes, decade) came in 2007, when he won a decision over Wanderlei Silva at UFC 79 in a rock'em sock'em robots kind of fight that was named the UFC's 2007 Fight of the Year.

The plan is to get the deal done with De La Hoya to promote the contest under Golden Boy's speculated move into the MMA market, with Liddell claiming that it's a real thing and the fight is being worked on with tentative plans suggesting the fight could take place in November 2018 in either Las Vegas or California. It was Liddell's fifth loss in six fights, with four of those five losses coming by knockout.

According to The Athletic's Richard Deitsch , Jordan approved the project and is taking part in the documentary. It is expected to pull from 500 hour of never-before-seen-footage from the 1997-98 championship season.

Two of the most iconic light-heavyweights in the history of the UFC were involved in a rather odd back-and-forth following Liddell's intention to return to MMA. People are going to pay money to watch Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz punch each other in the face, concerns about their health be damned.

The chances of Chuck Liddell and Jon Jones fighting at this juncture, in a sanctioned bout anyways, are slim to none. The rules call for each fighter to submit a magnetic resonance angiogram (MRA) of their brain, annual testing that includes a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain without contrast, EKG, cardiac testing, neurocognitive testing, blood work, and a vision test. You're entitled to your opinion and what you think. And if they don't, athletic commissions all across the country need to refuse to clear Liddell for a fight.
