Liddell's Retirement? A Load of Crap
Chuck Liddell lost his second straight bout this weekend at UFC 76 to the always tough Keith Jardine. Jardine, always known as a veteran mid-tier fighter, put on a show for the crowd that literally shocked the MMA world.
The Fallout of Knockout: Inside UFC 76’s Upsets
The real spelling of disarray: light heavyweight. After crowning an uncontested king in Quinton Jackson, two weeks later Keith Jardine and Forrest Griffin sent unofficial number one contenders Chuck Liddell and “Shogun” Rua into a downward spiral, taking the division down with them. What does the UFC do now?
The Truth About Pride And The UFC
Among the MMA intelligentsia, no topic continues to stir emotions
like the respective quality of fighters from Pride and UFC. Two days
after one of the finest top-to-bottom cards in UFC history, popular
message boards are showing about the same number of threads featuring
the word, “Pride,” as the word, “Griffin.”
Babalu Fined $25,000
Renato “Babalu” Sobral was fined $25,000 on Monday by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for excessively maintaining a submission hold on opponent David Heath at UFC 74, Keith Kizer, executive director for the NSAC, told MMAWeekly.com. Sobral was not suspended.
Diego Moving To LW
Coming into his bout at UFC 76, Diego Sanchez had already gone through much just to make it to his fight with Jon Fitch.
Sanchez, who was coming off of his first professional loss at the hands of rival Josh Koscheck at UFC 69, was rumored after the bout to possibly have been infected with Hepatitis and he had actually contemplated retirement.
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
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.
