Liddell return possible, but unlikely

This is according to Franklin McNeil, who says it's according to Liddel's trainer, Hackleman. Sure hope this is accurate. Source, MMA Live. Apparently Chuck is enjoying life after fighting—movies, golfing, etc.. I don't want to see any freak show fights with old past prime fighters and I can't see Chuck fighting the LHW title holder. It really bothers me that Couture has resigned for 6 fights. Maybe he could hang out with Chuck and see if he can't learn to relax.

I can't see anyone giving Lyoto or Shogun any trouble. I think Chuck can hang with everyone else though.

I gotta be honest, I don't think Couture will fight 6 more times. I honestly think that the only way DW was going to sign Couture again was to make sure he retired in the UFC. I expect 2-3 more fights, tops, out of Couture and then he will retire for good.

Liddell was definately an exciting fighter, and it's good to see he can relax now.

I'm so pleased to hear that. I'd love to see him get one more win, and Chuck also, before they hang it up.

I was gonna say Chuck needs to hang up the gloves before he turns into a Couture. Couture needs to stop fighting, and Lidell shouldnt enter the ring again unless he wants to embarass himself. Dont get me wrong I am a huge fan, and he is a legend but I think its over for him.

The sad thing is that Couture will probably continue fighting if he wins so it might be that he won't end his career on a high note. As far as Chuck, I am happy for him and hope he can find a second career. Last thing you want to do is become a joke as a fighter. Couture might end up like that--the Ric Flair of MMA. Hell, soon his body WILL end up like Flair's too, lol, can you imagine that in an octagon or on a poster.

amazing that nobody can test shogun now.... a few fights ago he was a bum.... Machida doesnt go down a notch in anybodys book, Shogun is just elevated.... that being said, Chuck has the right to do w/e makes him happy, til he loses to some real cans, nobody should say a thing.

It would be awesome if he come back. He is definetly one of my favorite fighters, but I'm glad he is enjoying life out of fighting.
