Liddell Vs. Rua & Griffin Vs. Silva in December?
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. Taken from Gerweck.net ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wow! But then Liddell could seriously be looking at his 3rd loss in a row.
