Now it is the undefeated Evans who stands between The Iceman and a potential rematch with Rampage, and Liddell warned his opponent that he is on dangerous ground.
“I’m one punch away from knocking somebody out at all times,” he told Setanta Sports News. “I’m planning on giving him his first loss, and I’m looking forward to it.
“He likes to stand and strike, and he tries to be fast on his feet and he has fast hands, and he has a good shot.
“He has good takedowns but I have good takedown defence so it should be a good fight. He’s gonna try to win the fight with speed but I’m going to win it with power.
“We haven’t put together a game plan yet, but my game plan hasn’t changed for years. It isn’t too hard to figure out what I’m going to do, I’m going to stand there and strike.

“I’ll try to stop him taking me down and then when we’re stood up I’ll knock him down. I’m looking for a first-round knock-out.


“It’d make things easier for me if Rampage beats Forrest Griffin; I can get my title shot and revenge on Rampage at the same time.
“The only reason I’m fighting Rashad is because Rampage already had his fight scheduled. I wanna knock Rashad out my way and get my shot at Rampage.
“I had a bad year but I’m on my comeback, I’m feeling good, I want my title so I can finish my career at the top.
“Rashad better be ready because he’s in my way and I’m coming after him.”

Just Chuck being Chuck really. I can't see Rashad continueing his win streak with The Iceman in his way.... But I also thought Chuck would kill The Dean!!

Oh God i'm such a noob!!!

With his comment about finishing his career on top does this mean that Mr.The Iceman is not far off retirement?

He's nearly 40 so i don't see him lasting too much longer regardless, which is a real shame. Chuck fights are always entertaining. I hope he stays a few more years.

I really think Chuck is going to win this in impressive fashion. Rashad is probably the worst of his last 3 opponents and I think (and hope) he's going to make an example of him.

i'd be cool if they KO'd each other, i think thats only happened in boxing but in their case i hope it happens so chuck moves up in weight or retires

I really dont see Chuck forgetting the way the Jardine fight went. That why hes acting this way. in most cases i would say this fighter is being overconfident and needs to focus.........but its the iceman. He deos two things great. Avoids takedowns. What Rashad is best at, and knocking the snot out of dudes. Somthing rashad will expierience first hand.

Fuel for rashad?! i think tito gave him about as much fuel as possible before there fight and rashad still looked content to do almost nothing in that fight. I think he'll tire himself out shooting then we'll finally get to see a sloppy, gassed rashad knocked on his ass.

I like to read this. I dont see it as being cocky at all, this is how Chuck needs to think. He has been listening to people talk crap about the year he has had and now he seems truly fired up. I think he is pissed and determined to make a statement. KO halfway through the first.

I love Chuck Liddell interviews. He's always entertaining whether it be in an interview or in the ring. I'm kind of excited about this fight. We will definetally see if Rashad is overrated now!

Do you guys think if Chucks plan fires off the way he wants it to and he creams Rashad (which I think we all know he certainly will) and then goes on to a win against Rampage (which is possible, anything is possible if Chuck is on point).

Will he retire after that? If he beats Rashad and then gets thumped for a third time by Rampage will he retire anyway? Chuck's been around knocking dudes out for a long time now. It would be really sad to see him go. I know we'll at least see him cornering dudes in the UFC and WEC.

I don't know why Chuck is so anxious for Rampage to stomp him a third time.

Updating his gameplan would be a sign that he DOESN'T have a learning disability.


1st fight: Gameplan = Standup. Result=brutally TKO'd.

2nd fight: Gameplan = Standup. Result = TKO'd in two minutes.

3rd fight: Gameplan = Standup. Result = Will be brutally TKO'd in two minutes.


I like Chuck, but damn if the man doesn't need to adapt. If you can't knock a guy out, the solution to the problem is not to just keep trying the same thing and getting your ass whipped.
