In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell stated that his next opponent is likely Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
SI.com: Just trying to throw you off your game. So what’s next for you? Have you been told your next opponent?
Liddell: Possibly Mauricio “Shogun” Hua. That’s what they’re saying. If it’s the June fight, it will probably be in London. But my trainer is trying to get it moved to Vegas. Too far. (Liddell is based in San Luis Obispo, Calif.)
