Quick Hits: White on Liddell, Fedor to Grapple Aoki, + More


(When he told her it was time to retire and give up the game for good, a tearful Paris Hilton told Dana: "But I am the game!" Only then did he fully understand the devils of fame and the ransom they demand. True story.)

- UFC president Dana White talked with Inside Fighting about the disappointing main event at UFC 97, and he also reiterated his commitment to keeping Chuck Liddell firmly in retirement, saying, “Believe me, it will be a fucking war if he tries not to retire, believe me.”  When pressed on other rapidly aging fighters who might need to be nudged into retirement, White admitted that Wanderlei Silva and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira “are right there too and yes, I will pull the trigger on them too.”  Dear God, he’s not going to kill them, is he?!

- A crazy rumor on the information superhighway says that Fedor Emelianenko and Shinya Aoki will square off against each other in a special grappling match at the “Deep M-1 Challenge 3rd Edition” in Japan on April 29th.  I’ll pause a moment and let that one sink in.  If true this would be completely insane, but to deny that we would totally want to see it would be to deny the very curiosity of the spirit that makes us human, and we aren’t about to do that.


- After submitting David Bielkheden with a rear naked choke on the undercard of UFC 97, Canadian fighter Mark Bocek is going to be out six weeks with a torn ligament.  He says he won’t need surgery, just some rehab time, but he tore it a week before the fight and still went out there and achieved anyway.  That’s a man for you, right there.

- The UFC heated up the nascent rivalry between Rashad Evans and Quinton Jackson by scheduling the two of them for a photo shoot on the same day.  Once they were in the same room tensions flared, according to Evans’ retelling of the event:

"I looked at him and I was like, what, man? He was like, ‘Rashad don’t talk to me, man! Don’t talk to me! Don’t say nothin’ to me! You don’t know me! You don’t know me!’ The (expletive) I need to know you for?"

Presumably that’s when the bell rang and they both had to get to class, but you best believe this is going to get settled at the park across the street after school.  Do not say anything to your homeroom teacher and blow this thing.

Here's the bottom line, every fighter is different, some can last longer tha others, while some after getting TKO'd or KO'd, they just can't take the punches like they use to.

You can't compare chuck to randy, both different styles of fighting, even though chuck prevailed over randy before. Chuck was too sluggish in the shogun fight, timing seemed off. He definitely looked better against Tito and Silva, but for shogun he seemed to have slower movement. The whole time I watched the fight, Rogan was saying how it looked like shogun was trying to set up a punch with the left hand, which ended up happening. Just because nog, randy, or coleman can still fight, chuck also has gotten beaten pretty badly in his last few fights, much worse than those other guys i mentioend...when your too sluggish, not keeping your hands up to guard your face, then its easy to hit that sweet spot to TKO/KO your opponent. Had chuck fought like the way he did with say Tito then maybe his shogun fight would've ended differently.

Dana can force chuck to retire from the UFC but not MMA. If chuck wants to still fight, Dana will probably not make any exceptions of him fighting again in the UFC. If chuck decides to leave the UFC just so he can fight, he takes the chance of making less $$$ from those other organizations, and getting fucked up again by someone else....plus those other MMA organizations aren't as poplular as the UFC, so chuck won't be the golden boy like he is now in the UFC.

Chucks made tons of $$$ in the UFC, probably more than anyone...so $$$ will never be a problem for him, plus dana already intends to keep chuck involved in the ufc doing other stuff while retired.

As for rashad and rampage, it should be a good fight. Rashad has speed, and power, and who's to say Rampage can hit harder than rashad, they may very well be equal. Can rashad beat ramapge, I believe he can, especially if he has a strategy like Keith did, since rampage doesn't like leg kicks, i could see rashad using leg kicks and taking him down to the mat. I also think if Rampage connects really good that rashad will be KO'd, or possibly stunned with rampage going for some GnP to finish him off. Rashad has speed, but rampage has good timing and moves around as well, I think it'll be a great fight but I hope rampage does win. The bottom line is your only as good as your last match, so we'll have to wait and see IF rashad/rampage end up fighting eachother, it could very well be machida/rampage, who knows until the event happens and the bell rings.

Are you serious? Your a fucking dip shit if you believe that Rashad is gonna beat rampage or even hold the title.. Rashad's a fucking cum rag & has more of an over inflated annoying ego than any fighter since tito..

Rashad's a douche bag & unworthy of the title!!!

@ ANONYMOUS, YOU'LL SEEEEEEEEEEEEEE YOU STUPID BASTARD MOTHER FUCKER. I'M SURE THAT THERE WAS A TIME WHEN RAMPAGE COULD'NT FINISH A FIGHT WAY BACK IN THE DAY BUT NOW LOOK AT HIM. SAME FOR RASHAD. IT IS RASHADS TIME TO SHINE. RATHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT OR EVEN WANT TO ADMIT IT BUT RASHAD CAN IS VERY CAPABLE OF FINISHING RAMPAGE IN A VERY DOMINANT FASHION. CHANCES ARE THAT YOU WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO SHUT ME THE FUCK UP, AND TEACH ME ANYTHING ABOUT FIGHTING YOURSELF SO WHY DON'T YOU JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP, AND GO FUCK YOUR MOTHER AGAIN YOU SICK FUCKING INBREED SON OF AN UGLY FAT BITCH. GO FUCK YOURSELF. JUST WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU GOING TO DO OR SAY AFTER RASHAD DOES BEAT THE DOG SHIT WOLFSLAIR OUT OF THE DUMB COCKY LOONEY MOTHER FUCKER RAMPAGE. THE ONLY PEOPLE TO FEAR THAT MOTHER FUCKER ARE PREGANANT CHICS, AND OLD FOLKS ALONG THE FREEWAYS. JUST SHUT YOUR FUCKING MOUTH.

i love how people think rashad has more power in his hands than rampage when up until pretty recently he was known as the guy who couldnt finish a fight. as for better movement sure the guy has it he is a d-1 level wrestler while rampage only did it in highschool. still tho he has made huuuuge advances in movement after he got his blue belt in bjj a while ago. cap locks hal is a retard that doesnt no shit about fighting. and if he did he wouldnt say rashad is going to win cause forest bear rampage. just recently rampage has gotten over the whole starvation to purge the evil bullshit and is working hard as hell. its gonna be a good fight but i dont see rashad walking over rampage. his takedown offense is great and people dont wanna get close enough to find that out because he will knock them the fuck out or slam them thru the ring, also rashads hands cant be more deadly than wandys knees and how many of those did rampage stand up to before he fell??? basically tho everyone needs to stop arguing cause they both are good fighters in their own sense. only thing that really needs to stop is people saying rashad can hit harded and again cap locks hal needs to shut the fuck up and learn a little about fighters before he spreads his bullshit.

Why would it be insane for Aoki to grapple against Fedor?
The weight difference?
Ever watch ADCC? Ever see Marcelo Garcia take on guys twice his weight in the absolute weight class
What does Eddie Bravo weight? 140pds max?

Only people who think this to be insane are UFC nuthuggers who thinks MMA revolves around their precious.

This makes PERFECT sense for Fedor to see how he matches up against a small guy. If he loses no big deal, its a demo but it will give him of what to expect if he is doing ADCC like was claimed. Grappling against a much smaller opponent has its advantages like strenght and mass but there are also disadvantages against a much smaller opponent. Just ask Ricco Rodriguez.

I know the idea of a fighter not sticking to just MMA rules fights sounds strange to some newbs but what makes Fedor (and many others like Mousasi and so on) special is his willingness to do so.
Instead of sitting on his ass and fighting once a year, he does his national sambo tournament as well as the world event.
Hell, I'd want him to put on longer pants and give judo a try if he had time to practice.
But if he can only do MMA, Sambo and ADCC this year, I will still be pretty impressed.

Real fighters fight.
They dont take layoffs to sit on the sidelines doing reality shows like Nog did (with the ensuing result.)

You can bet your ass Liddell being promoted as a headliner on every single UFC card he's fought on for the last 3 years earned him a "do-not-compete" clause in his ginormous contract. If he can't fight in the UFC, my guess is he'd have to wait at least a year before fighting anywhere else.

Wand is one of my favorite fighters but i also believe that he may be up for retirement as much as it pains me to say that but he has been knocked clean out 3 out of his last 5 fights (much like chuck). Nog on the other hand i have to disagree but i can see where some may want him to retire i mean the man made a living from getting the shit beat out of him only to come back and get the submission. Big Nog's durability is legendary but how many more beating can he take before some serious damage is done. I still believe it should be the fighters choice no matter what.

As for rashad and Rampage its hard to say. Rashad has knock out power but not like Rampage. Jackson is one of the strongest fighters in the LHW division. I have to give the edge to Rampage in boxing. Forrest was doing a pretty good job of oicking Rashad apart until he broke his hand. Rampage on the other hand fought forrest and was sending forrest flying when ever he hit him with a punch ( granted very few landed flush). I do believe that forrest did beat Rampage. I think it comes down to what kinda traning camp rampage has. If every thing goes well and jackson sticks to his diet and does not get lazy i believe he should takd out rashad. As for chuck, it is easy to knock out a dude who carries his hands down by his nipples.

I wish Dana White's uncontrollable yet transparent love for money doesn't speak for him any more.

That is a great, great interview with Dana. Well done, Inside Fighting.
Dr Dalliance- April 22, 2009 at 11:39 pm
"The fuck I need to know you for?" Haha. I'm starting to like Rashad more. I always took him for a kinda whitebread brother, but he's holding his own in the trash talk with one of the masters.
CAPS LOCK HAL,- April 22, 2009 at 11:11 pm
FUCK, THIS IS MOTHERFUCKING BULLSHIT, WHO EVER POSTED AT 19:01 UNDER MY NAME WAS NOT ME. I WOULD NOT WRITE THAT SHIT BECAUSE IT IS FUCKING GAY AND STUPID. WHOEVER WROTE THAT FUCKING SHIT NEEDS TO DIE YOU STUPID FAG MOTHERFUCKING ANIMAL FUCKING PILE OF ROTTEN BILE, FUCK YOU MOTHERFUCKER. STOP PRETENDING TO ME YOU DUMB FUCK THAT PISSES ME OFF. I FUCKING LOVE RAMPAGE HE IS THE BEST FIGHTER ON THE PLANET AND HE WILL BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF SUGAR COCKSUCKER RASHAD WHO CAN'T FIGHT FOR SHIT. I WATCHED ALL RAMPAGES FIGHTS AND HE IS THE BEST BECAUSE HIS SLAMS AND PUNCHES ARE AWESOME. I WOULD NEVER SAY BAD THINGS ABOUT HIM.

If Fedor was interested in fighting top competitionon a regular basis he would stop putting on freakshows in Japan.
Rampage is baiting Rashad into a fight because of his arrogance.
DANA WHITE NEEDS TO RETIRE!- April 22, 2009 at 10:22 pm
This retirement things is brutal. Whu the F does dana white think he is?
He's still that same old skinny, pale faced little bitch from the old ufc'. Watch when he brings the belt out on the old videos he looks like he really is not with a ll the attitude and fat like he is now. We need to get rid of dana. Dana is killing the ufc and mma now. There are so many other promotions that want to put fights on that matter and gewt right down to business unlike the ufc's long, drawn out, "greatest fight ever", in mma history blah blah blah hype machine!
A-non- April 22, 2009 at 9:45 pm
Big Nog did not have a full training camp because of a staph infection when he fought Mir. Wandy does need a win. But retirement because White says so is absurd. Randy got knocked out 2 times by Chuck but was not forced to retire it was on his own. Multiple losses require retirement? What about Andrei when he was with UFC. Two losses to Timmy no talk of retirement from White then. Because Andrei sold seats. There are many more examples. Everyone ask your self when and if you get to retire do you want to do it when your ready or be forced unwillingly by someone like White. There would only be one exception a medical retirement. If anything release them from their contract. Nomatter what any one thinks about Shamrock he is right by keeping fighting if that is what makes him happy. We live in a society where everyones opinion is supposed to be taken seriously but not your own. I guess just do things your own way but be willing to deal with the consequences.
