“Chuck Liddell is stupid rich. Chuck Liddell is done. He’s got nothing left to prove. He’s the most famous guy on Earth. I love him like a ******* brother and I don’t want to see him get hurt. There is no reason for it. He’s ******* 40 years old man. These guys that are fighting now are young, explosive, fast ******* kids who are well rounded mixed martial artists. There’s no ******* reason for Chuck Liddell to be out there at 40 years old still fighting. I don’t want to make a ******* nickel off that ever.

i sadly agree with dana white.

chuck has done so much for the sport , but the new comers are more rounded.
chuck is too one-dimensional and always has been but he got away with it for so long.

WAR Chuck

I agree with Dana to the extent that Chuck has nothing left to prove.

But I would like to hear Chuck talk about his retirment.
It seems like Dana makes a bigger issue about it than Chuck.
But I guess we all know what Chuck would say.
He wants to fight again.

Chucks problem isn't that he's not well rounded, it's that he's just not that great in the stand up. People really need to call a spade a spade here, he has no defense for punches or kicks. The thing is when he was in his hay day he was destroying guys that coulden't stand with him because they're stand up was weak and they coulden't get him into their world because he has awsome takedowns. Chuck hasn't really gotten worse IMO, he's just fighting people who has good stand up and he's getting exposed.

His ability to take a punch has droped and I think he has lost some power same with Wandy and you need to look no farthewr then their fight to see this those 2 punched each other for 15 min and neither got a ko.

I think Chuck should make decisions for Chuck.

I am glad Shogun won, but I do feel bad for Chuck though, he is a legend and one of the greatest of all time IMO, he really paved the way for a lot of people.
