"I would have taken the fight, but I don't make his decisions or run his career for him. [Lyoto Machida's decision,] that's a different thing. Machida would have got a title fight he was in line for, whereas Chael was taking a title fight he wasn't in line for. If Lyoto was not in shape, I guess I understand. He was beat by Jones last time and he would have wanted time to prepare. It is different from a peak Jones turning down a fight."

This is why Chuck will always be remembered as the greatest LHW ever! The dude just loved to fight and would not turn down a challenge!

I'd love to see Chuck come back one last time & end his career on a high note with a triumphant vintage Ice Man one punch KO

Very un-likely against Sonnen but I can dream can't I

Chuck coming out of retirement to save a ppv against Chael would have been huge. If I was Dana I would have loved to make it happen

Agreed tbh. Liddell would be a bad match for Sonnen. I like Sonnen but to see a vintage Liddell KO would have been awesome.

God damn I miss the Iceman. He was a guy you actually could believe when they said they would fight anyone, anywhere.

I chose this picture for Chuck's epic shirt. I think this was after the Franklin fight.
