John Hackleman: "Chuck Liddell does whatever Chuck Liddell wants"

New John Hackleman interview.

Quote:
On a Chuck Liddell return in 2010 to face Tito Ortiz or Kimbo slice...

"Possibly. It depends on a lot of things; mainly him. I think Chuck Liddell does whatever Chuck Liddell wants! Chuck Liddell and Chuck Liddell only will decide."

"Any fight will get him motivated. He's already knocked him out twice, so I don't know how motivated it will get him. It could get him real motivated or not. I don't know. I think Chuck gets himself motivated. He gets motivated to win no matter who it is."

"Chuck's at light heavy, so if Kimbo wants to drop down to 205."

On Chuck's appearance on Dancing With The Stars...

"He got robbed on Dancing with the Stars. He was better than the football player and the blonde guy; the tall, skinny, whining blonde guy. He was a lot better than those two. I think the skater would have gave him a pretty good run for his money and Donnie Osmond, but Donnie Osmond is a professional dancer. He's been doing choreographed dancing since he was 4 years old. That was kind of a setup to bring pros in, but Chuck didn't whine about it. He just went out there and done his best."

On recent comments made by Bob Arum and Bernard Hopkins regarding MMA...

"Well, I'll take on Bob Arum and Bernard the same day. It would be Bob Arum first. He would be my warm up; my fluffer. I've heard Bernard Hopkins say nothing but good things about MMA. I heard him say he would get his ass whopped if he fought MMA."

"They are in some pretty precarious positions sometimes, but calling it fake is pretty lame. If they said that, they are stupid basically. Some people are bitter because boxing is taking a huge backseat to MMA right now. Remember Mayweather tried that shit too and he actually apologized. If they said that, they're both stupid. If Bernard Hopkins really thinks that, he should get in there and try it. I have a 170-pounder right now that is 4-0 in MMA that will take him."

I want liddell vs kimbo, I want the man that truly made me a fan of mma to end his career on a KO win. Kimbo is a big name, liddell is still a big name, it would be a big draw and its a fight he takes easily.

It could get him real motivated or not. I don't know.

I think Chuck gets himself motivated.

He gets motivated to win no matter who it is.
How many John Hackleman's are there, and why can't they work out their disagreements before giving their final answer?

There is absolutely no way Kimbo would drop to 205 even if Dana asked him to. He might try to but I don't think he could. I'm not a personal trainer or anything but I think it's common sense Kimbo has very little body fat and if he really lost 30 pounds that's a shitload of muscle and power he'd be losing. Now, Chuck going up to 220 or so.. I could definitely see happening but it doesn't sound like to me Chuck would want to make the effort to do so. I mean it'll be a stand up war forsure. I believe both Kimbo and Chuck have suspect chins, moreso Chuck though. There's too much risk and no reward for Chuck IMO. Him vs Tito 3 would sell huge too. So would him vs Forest.

To make heavy weight all chuck has to do is get to 206.. yea extra weight might help.. it also might hurt.. Kimbo is not that large of a HW actually more on the smaller side nowadays compared to many of them.

chuck walks around at 220, and kimbo already said he could drop to light heavy weight, so im sure if they really wanted to they could make this fight work, even if it was a catch weight.

I don't care to see this fight though at all, because theres always the what if, what if kimbo does knock chuck out, with the amnesia of fans including people on this forum it would destroy chuck. I also don't want him to fight tito because i think tito would win this time, and as i stated before, everyone would forgot about the previous two dismantalings, im the biggest chuck fan and i would love to see him go out with a win, but at what cost.

This is kinda a slap in Chucks face...reality is he would wax Kimbo on stand-up, and thats the only thing that would make this good, is Chuck def wont get taken down and he IMO can still easily trade with Kimbo...

Never though we would be talking about this....
