After getting the “tapped” out on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars,” Chuck Liddell is ready to get back into gym.

The former UFC Light Heavyweight champion recently spoke with Sherdog Radio Network’s “Savage Dog Show” and expressed an interest in a possible comeback.

Really? This is what Chuck has been lowered to? What a difference a couple of years makes huh? If you'd have told me two years ago that "The Iceman" would be fighting that dude from the youtube videos, I wouldn't have believed it

Don't do it Chuck! Walk away. You're better than that

I know the fight would sell but honestly seriously this would be such a bad idea. If this fight happens, I know the UFC did it just to make money.

Too risky for Chuck minding his current situation. A fluke loss to Kimbo would be the last thing he would like to experience right now.


But as a Liddell hater, I would LOVE to see this

As sad as it is to say that would generate insane PPV buys.....

Why all the hate towards Liddell? The man is one of the greatest fighters in UFC history.

Aside from the Chuck hating which is slightly bizarre given who he is - what weight would they put this at as chuck is quite a few pounds lighter than Kimbo? I can not see Koimbo getting down to 205 so that moves Chuck up and given his propensity to put on weight it would not exactly speed him up.

Not a fitting end to Chucks career if he gets KOed.

The payday Chuck could pull from that fight would be massive. If Dana White wants this to happen it will. you are talking the highest payday in UFC history for sure and likely will be the highest for a while.

Fickle fans. As soon as someone falls out of contention, or their career comes to a halt with a string of losses, fans jump off the bandwagon and find another dominating champ to root for.

Wait and see...as soon as Machida and GSP lose, the same thing will happen.

Anyways...as much as I like a standup war, I don't want to see this. And I don't think Dana would let it happen, anyways.

Honestly I don't think this fight would offer Chuck any danger. He is still better than Kimbo Slice people...

I mean if Seth Petruzelli can knock out kimbo chuck should be able to handle himself pretty well. And even if he did get in trouble standing he could easily take it to the ground (and as funny as it sounds) would have a HUGE advantage on the mat.

I have been a Chuck hater since he beat up Tito the first time as I USED to be a Tito fan....I am now no longer a fan of Tito due to his mouth and fued with Dana White, I lost appreciation of Matt Hughes after I saw him as a coach on TUF....I just can't stand certain kinds of people. I still love watching them fight, but I tend to root for people I like inside and outside of the ring. That's just me....there are a lot of fickle fans.

Standing,this fight could be very close.
Chuck's wrestling is solid though,and despite Kimbo working on his ground game I think Chuck could still take him with some GNP.

Totally the opposite with me. I usually hate what everybody loves. Unfortunately excessive nut-hugging towards someone/something leads me to NOT like that person/thing. Yes, I'm hater and admit it and usually root against the champions unless they're part of my true favorites, mostly because to their fans they "never" lose, there's always an excuse(e.g. age, overconfidence). I never liked him event when he was dominant. The only time I rooted for him was vs. Rashad only because I was there and I absolutely hate Rashad because of his cockyness.
