The rumors of Chuck Liddell retiring could be greatly exaggerated. John
Hackleman, Liddell's trainer, said this:

"He's already said he'll be back in the gym next Monday, said Hackleman,
who has coached Liddell for 16 years. He's going to fight again,
hopefully as soon as possible, maybe in December. We're looking at
Shogun.

This would mean a HUGE December card, if true. Liddell vs. Rua, Silva vs.
Griffin, and Serra vs Hughes. Could be VERY huge.

Wow! But then Liddell could seriously be looking at his 3rd loss in a row.

Well Rua might be good for Chucky Rua wont be able to take him down and lets see Chuck still looks better in the stand up 1 more thing he hit a hell of a lot harder than Forrest

Chuck will get killed if Shogun gets his act together..I BELIEVE in Shogun! There were millions of factors going into why he loss...If he isn't aggressive in this fight then the UFC should look into Pride steriod use before they sign these guys because most the fighters UFC signed from Pride have lost that killer aggressive instinct!!!

I think if shogun looks like he did against forrest and chuck looks like he did against jardine then chuck definately has a chance, shogun gassed and chuck hits way to hard for shogun to take punches like he was against griffin.

and if forrest keeps improving like he has been after every fight win or lose and wandy is gunshy from getting KOed in his last two fights then forest definately has a chance to win this fight too

with this year being the year for the under dog i would be happy for chuck to finally be labeled an under dog. when was the last time chuck was labeled an underdog and dont say when he fought rampage 2 cause according to the casinos chuck was favored.

i am a big fan of all four of these fighters so these would be awesome fights

P.S. does anyone else think that this may just be a complete rumor? and is there any credibility to the wandy vs forest fight or is this website just throwing that in for fun? I have never heard of this website and the layout didnt seem very oficial so i am a little skeptical, and whats the relationship between this website and hackleman?

i am not to sure about all this. please correct me if i am being an uneducated idiot.

Wanderlie and Shogun need to smarten up and train together if they want to win their fights. They both look alot better when they push each other to keep going in the gym. Shogun looked lost in his first fight after no training with Wanderlei. If Wanderlei is actiually still training with Couture its a different story but I think he should be loyal to his boy and show the UFC what Chute Boxe really is.

This would mean a HUGE December card, if true. Liddell vs. Rua, Silva vs.
Griffin, and Serra vs Hughes. Could be VERY huge.



not to mention bj penn vs sherk/stevenson.

That is really the best potential lineup now for a December card, and really, it's better than the alternative. Now we have a Shogun vs. Liddell showdown, Chute Box showdown type of fight where they can hype a Silva-Liddell showdown even more if he beats Shogun. If Shogun wins, he regains some stature and ground in the division again. It's really a win-win.

I think griffin and silva would be an amazing fight....griffin is one of the most improved fighters that is in the mma world today and he has a better then good chance at taken out silva. silva is commin out 2 huge knockouts and u better believe that will effect him big time. As for chuck and sho gun........sho gun looked very sloppy and careless against griffin, and everyone knows what happens if u get sloppy against chuck...........YOU GO TO SLEEP!!!!!!!! the lost to jardine was a big upset i personally think that chuck was still a lil shook up from what rampage did to him, but now has all that outta his system. i would like to see liddell jardine 2 cuz i think that fight was pure bullshit.

so id say:
griffin over silva
chuck over sho gun

There is no way that you believe tito should get a shot. Forrest would most likley take a rematch if tito ever started to get back up into the upper tiers of the division.

forrest wins
chuck wins


wandy first fight i dont see him winning and chuck may have lost but shogun coming back off a loss to fight chuck imo would not be the best beat
