Chuck Liddel interview (talks Wandy & Babalu)

Before a match up between Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Chuck “Iceman” Liddell and Pride Middleweight Champion “The Axe Murderer” Wanderlei Silva can be finalized, Liddell must first get past Renato “Babalu” Sobral at UFC 62.

Liddell assured MMAWeekly that he was not looking past “Babalu,” but that doesn’t mean he’s not thinking about Wanderlei Silva.

Liddell has stated, ““I think Babalu is a tougher fight for me than Wanderlei.” And Liddell commented, “The possibility of actually getting to fight Wanderlei has actually motivated me to train a little harder to get ready for that fight.”

Clearly Liddell has his sights set on Wanderlei Silva.

Commenting on a possible fight with Wanderlei Silva, Chuck said, “I think Wanderlei is a very tough fighter; don’t get me wrong . . . The thing with Wanderlei is styles make fights. He’s going to come after me, and he’s going to stand and strike with me, and that makes my life easy.”

Liddell entered Pride: “Final Conflict 2003,” the Pride Middleweight Grand Prix, with the sole purpose of having an opportunity to fight Silva. He was defeated in the semifinals by Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, closing the door on the opportunity.

Following his loss to Jackson, Liddell didn’t think a fight with Wanderlei Silva would ever come to fruition, but the landscape of mixed martial arts has changed. The situation exists to make this match up actually happen.

What does it mean to Chuck to have the opportunity to fight Wanderlei Silva?

He said, “For me it’s, without a doubt, that I’m the best in the world at what I do. That’s what we’re here to do. I mean when we’re fighting, that’s why we compete, to be the best. I love fighting. I love what I do, but we’re here to try to prove that we are the best . . . With that fight, without argument, if I knock him out, without argument, I’ll be the best in the world.”

Liddell first has to prove he’s the best in the UFC by defending his title against Renato Sobral August 26th at UFC 62.

I think Babalu is going to win because Chuck isn't 100% focused on him. Thank Dana White for that!

Chuck will own both and prove he is the greatest light heavyweight champion in the UFC of all time, better then Randy Couture and Tito Ortiz which is something hugely to brag about and be proud about. Watch all you PRIDE fans cry once he beats Wanderlei and make up excuses and say "I bet against Arona he couldn't", "Against Rua he couldn't", "Against Lil' Nog he can't" all these lame excuses. Wanderlei sucks in the UFC. If this match was happening in PRIDE of coarse Wanderlei is going to win but Wanderlei is screwed. The iceman is going to take an ice pick and stick it right in Wanderlei's face.

Chuck goes into his back yard to get his cat and then Wanderlei comes out of the bush and pulls out an axe and murders him thats how it will end just like Punishment 101 said.
