At yesterday's pre-UFC 97 Press Conference, Dana White backed down off statements made last month about Chuck Liddell perhaps being done after tomorrow's fight against Mauricio Rua, even if Liddell impresses. Now Dana says Chuck will be with UFC until Dana is "dead".

Even if Dana wouldn't let Chuck fight anymore I highly doubt Chuck would ever lend his star status to any other MMA organization. That is, unless he and the UFC have a MASSIVE fallout. I would almost literally drop dead if I saw Liddell on a Strikeforce card, lol

Even if Chuck loses to Rua the UFC could still have him fight and people will gobble it up.
Everytime I invite a friend over to watch a PPV they always ask "is Chuck Liddell fighting?" (Or I should say they use to,but not as much anymore)

Anyhow, Chuck Liddell has a very popular name,and Liddell himself really gets promoted more by the average fan than anything else.
Liddell could be fighting until he enters into denial,and he could probably still sell a PPV by himself.

I would'nt be surprised "if" Chuck retires which I doubt he will just sayin, that Dana would give him a jod beside Joe and Mike.
