According to statements made with Brawl Sports, Dana White is not going to give Chuck Liddell a title shot if he defeats Keith Jardine. He wants Chuck to win two in a row before fighting the winner of Rampage Jackson/Dan Henderson.
Chuck would have to win one more fight. I think Chuck has to win two fights in a row and then, yeah, he’s back in the mix again. He got knocked out in a minute 30 in the first round (in his last fight). No matter how great he is, I’d like to see him win a couple of fights and then come back and fight for the title again.
Dana White also defended his decision to have Chuck Liddell face Keith Jardin at UFC 76. Both fighters are coming off losses at UFC 73.
“Him and Jardine were on a collision course anyway … similar styles, both coming off knockout losses, both their fights ended very abruptly, so we did it.”
