Chuck is a legend, no one can take that from him.
It's always sad to see one of the greats decline, but Chuck looks done.
He's a shell of his former self as far as I'm concerned.

I still love Chuck.

We all love Chuck and it is sad to see him go out like this but he has had an incredible career and made a shitload of cash along the way!

Time for him to hang em up and leave the sport with some dignity!

Don't feel too bad for the guy, he is a freaking multi-millionaire who gets to retire in his 30's!

i say give him someone like Eric Schafer who is a solid fighter, that chuck can defend against the take down and hopfully go out on a win

Chuck Liddell is the whole reason i became a fan of the sport. I was hoping so much that he would bounce back and go on another run for the title, but that's just not viable any longer.

His age has caught up with him. I'd rather see him hang it up and preserve what is left of his legacy rather than take a fight with a mid-tier fighter.

Where's that old Shogun support thread after he lost to Forrest? Big ups to everyone like me who never lost faith in him! I knew if he kickboxed and din't just box like Wandy he could take it!

WAR SHOGUN!!!! If anything, I think Chucks defense was worse then before he started training Howard Johnson. Good exciting fight though, Chuck made it exciting no doubt and landed some hard ones! Both guys put up a good effort, big ups 2 both men but congrats Shogun I'm glad your back!!!

The sport have grown so much that for one-dimensional fighters like Chuck it'll be really hard to step-up in competition, not to mention the age factor.


I never lost faith in Shogun, never was worried because of his cardio since the 1st round was 5 fresh minutes anyways and he was able to take advantage.

Hopefully now people realize how good a healthy Shogun is when he doesn't have ring rust.

It sucks to see him down like this. I think he will fight again, but thats just me hoping I geuss. Either way he is a great fighter and his legend will never die.

Shogun was a beast in pride but he used foot stops & kicks & knees to the head alot. He can't in the UFC, problem for him imo. I know alot will disagree. He didn't impress me against chuck, definetly not against coleman or forrest.
Chusk is a legend & i never have or never will bet against him, but he is past his prime. He dropped in rank after 4 losses out of his last 5 fights so give him 2 more fights see what happens. Its always nice to see a legend go out with win.

Chuck is a legend in the sport, and you can hate on him all you want but theres no denying it.

To me, this fight was a passing of the torch. Alot of people said that was the case when Rampage knocked Chuck out, but I think Shoguns the future of the division and will be the man to take chucks crown as the greatest UFC LHW champ.

I love both guys, they are my number 1 and 2 in the division, so even though im pretty depressed about Chucks loss, im happy to see Shogun finally gaining some respect from all his haters. Thats his second K.O win without stomps so hopefully people will cut the "shoguns main weapons are stomps" ****, becouse its ridiculous. His biggest weapons are his crafty JJ, powerfull hands and some of the best low kicks in the game.

Chuck was and forever will be the face of MMA in my opinion. He has sold more PPV's, KO'd true greats of the sport and left a bigger impression on the general public than anyone else in MMA has or ever will.
The UFC and MMA owes a hell of a lot to Chuck and I hope they recognize just how important he is/was.
His style of fighting and personality were exactly what MMA and the UFC needed at exactly the right time to propel it to where it is today! I seriously doubt you could have had MMA in the position it was back then and use a champ or contender of today to rocket it to where it is now.
Chuck is a legend and I'v no doubt a future hall of famer!
