Howard Davis Jr.: Chuck Liddell Should Take a Year Off, Retirement Decision Should Be His to Make
American Top Team boxing coach and Olympic gold medalist Howard Davis Jr. spoke with me about his work with Chuck Liddell prior to his UFC 97 loss against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. Contrary to what some people believe, Davis said he really did work with Liddell for about two and a half months, and while he didn’t change his style he did try to add a couple tools to Liddell’s game. Here Davis talks about what Liddell’s recent loss means for his career, and whether he thinks the former UFC champ should call it quits like Dana White is insisting he do. He also touches on the addictive “drug” of being a world champion fighter, and why he thinks Liddell has seemed more vulnerable in recent bouts – and it’s not because he’s getting old.

At 6-foot-1, UFC lightweight Cole Miller could make cut to 145 (and even 135)
At a towering height of 6-foot-1, Cole Miller is one of the UFC's tallest lightweights. And while he has no intentions of leaving the UFC, where he meets "The Ultimate Fighter 8" winner Efrain Escudero at the organization's upcoming UFC 103 show, he could certainly have some options outside the fight promotion. After all, not only can Miller compete at 155 pounds, but the lanky fighter said he could make the cut to 145 pounds – and even 135 pounds – if he really pushed himself.
