Passed Down the Grapevine - Chuck Liddell vs. Forrest Griffin UFC 104 or 105
Rumor being passed around, source is somebody in Chucks entourage saying after the Forrest fight, Chuck has been talking (semi-seriously) about a fight between him and Forrest. NOTHING has been set in stone, but again, it's being talked, and this is the first step.
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.
