Great fight. I say why not have this fight. Why does every fight always have to have title implications. This would be a good fight to watch - i dont care what impact it has on the divison. These two are a mile away from a title shot anyway.

Last thing u want is chcuk to fight a really lethal striker - so forrest is a suitable opponent as he is unlikely to brutally KO Chuck. This is a good fight for Forrest to come back to as well after 2 defeats.

The TUF 1 coach and student angle plus the fact they are both huge names in the sport - makes sense to have this fight. If Liddell wins he may retire with a win over a top opponent.

Would be a great fight from a fans standpoint. It's always fun to watch big names go at it, but as somebody else said earlier it's not what the UFC wants. Chuck has 1 fight left on his contract and if/when Dana let's him back in the Octagon it'll be against somebody he can easily beat. Nobody wants to see an icon go out in a free fall. It's bad enough that Liddell has lost 4 of his last 5 fights...but to end his contract and possibly his career on 3 straight losses would be devistating.

As far as Griffin goes, his next fight will probably be a guy in the 8-9 range of the top 10 LHWs. Personally I'd love to see him fight Jon Jones but I may be alone on that. It will probably be 1-2 more fights before Jones gets a legit shot at a top contender.

Rampage- 30-7
Bones- 8-0

Forrest vs. Chuck would be one of the greatest fights (hopefully) this decade. Especially if they put it at UFC 104, they're going to draw insane numbers of people.

If you watch the Silva Griffin fight, you will see at the end of the fight Dana talking to Liddell. You must be quick to catch it but they are talking.

I'm not getting my hopes up for anymore Liddell kick ass matchups until I see it on UFC's website on a fight card. Even then, they seem to have a sketchy future some of them.

Although I would love to see this fight and i think Chuck could win I think the UFC should give him an easier fight. They should give him a grappler with very limited stand up. Some one like Eric Shcafer (who has a few wins under his belt) will be ideal. Just so Chuck can get a win and solidy his position before moving him up the ladder to a tougher opponent like Griffin.

It'd no doubt be a fun fight, but I have this inkling that they're saving Liddell for a fight with Tito. Yes, we've seen it twice. But a third fight would draw huge money, especially if Ortiz is able to really dominate Coleman. Could Ortiz finally defeat the Iceman? Or would Liddell three-peat a TKO victory? With the way these two are already taking verbal jabs at one another, it just seems like it's only a matter of time before we witness the third and final chapter.
