I think a fight against Forrest is great for Chuck. Chuck has a better chance of winning this fight rather than fighting against one of the top 5 LHW's (Machida, Silva, Evans, Rampage, Shogun). Also, Forrest has a route to redeem himself since Lidell is way past his prime.

Forrest isn't really a striker, he's only got one KO and two TKO's on his record, and that was against sub par competition. The guy doesn't have any real KO power against top level fighters. The only real threat he poses against Chuck is his vicious leg kicks, which are easily defended against.

The LHW division is so stacked right now, going through the opponents, everybody that's a medium to big name poses a huge threat to Chuck, except Forrest. Think about it. Yeah they could have Chuck fight Jardine again, but that's retarded, same with matching him up against up and comers like Jon Jones, useless. Coleman maybe, but he's already locked into the Tito fight, and they won;t match him up against Tito because that's also useless, he's already lost two to Chuck.

I'll blindly believe this for sure. But seriously, I don't want the loser to blow their brains out or something so I hope it doesn't happen that soon. If Liddell is to fight again, I figured he would wait at least a year to give his brain a chance to recover as much as it can, and then if he felt good, he would train and fight again. It's anyones guess though.

And we all saw how easily Chuck defended against Jardine's leg-kicks.

Oh, wait...

I'd roll with Forrest, purely because Liddell is similar to Rampage in respect to checking kicks. Aka, he just doesn't.

This fight makes complete sense to me for a few reasons.

1) Both fighters, even though they are coming off a few losses, have huge drawing power.

2) Stylistically, this would make an awesome match up. Forrest the wild brawler with little KO power, taking on a true legend of the sport in Chuck Liddell, the former champion. Teacher vs. Student. Awesome.

3) Both fighters need to reassert themselves in the 205 division, and could use each other as a stepping stone to get back on their feet and back into the mix.

4) Chuck Liddell is still itching to step inside the octagon. He will not retire on a loss, and a fight against Forrest will bring him back into the Winners Circle.

This would be perfect as the co-main event for 104. If not it we will probably have to wait until 105, at worst 106.

Link or bullshit...... Plus forrest vs. Tito is more attractive...

I would actually think Chuck wins this.

Chuck didn't look bad against Shogun, he just got caught when he dropped his hands.

I think it would be a good fight.

But if Chuck DOES lose on this potential match..then he should DEFINITELY retire. I don't want to see Chuck fighting at prelims.
