In this video interview with Fighters Only, Chuck Liddell shoots down rumors that he may face Anderson Silva in February or Randy Couture in June, saying that a potential fourth fight with Couture, “doesn’t make sense.” He seems to have his sights set on a fight some time in March or April. The opponent sounds less important to him than the date, but then that story could change once he sits down with Dana White and looks at his options.
Liddell also makes the case for continuing his career after the knockout loss to Rashad Evans, pointing out that he was winning the fight (technically true, since not much had happened) before getting caught with Evans’ brutal right hand.
Fair enough, but he has to realize that the situation will only become more desperate if he can’t notch a win in this mystery bout in the spring. As long as he’s turning down interesting possible fights for himself, he might as well throw out a name or two of someone he would like to fight. And don’t say James Irvin. Just please, don’t.
