Boxer Tommy Morrison is taking a page out of the Rocky 3 playbook with his plan to attend a Chuck Liddell press conference to goad the UFC champ into an eventual fight.

Has Tommy figured out his HIV status yet? That whole story is weird and impossible to understand...how can there be this much confusion about a fighter's HIV status???

Liddell would destroy him, though. What's the point of a fight like that?

Maybe he should fight Brock Lesnar now that he doesnt have an opponent. Let the rumors begin

It sounds like he is trying to use the Liddell comment as an elevator ride to the top. I say let him get a couple of fights under his belt, and if he is able to perform as well as he thinks, then talk about it. Nobody gets a free ride. Well, except maybe Maywether if he actually wanted it...but there is a definate agenda there.

Morrison is a HORRIBLE matchup for Chucky! Tommy's left hook is the stuff of legend. Chuck better plan on taking him down and ground and pounding him. Tito or Couture would be a much better fight because they know better than to think that a looping overhand and a fighting stance that keeps your right hand at your waist has any serious chance of working against a world class boxer. Chuck better hope that Tommy has lost the majority of his talent or that he is a sucker for a leg kick if he wants to stand with him.

LOL. Morrison would get carried out on a stretcher. I doubt that the NSAC would even allow Morrison into the Octagon w/Chuck.
