During the UFC 116 press conference, UFC President Dana White officially retired Chuck Liddell, at least from the UFC standpoint.
“He’ll never fight in the UFC again. Can Chuck Liddell still make money? Could I make money off of Chuck Liddell? Yes. I don’t want that money. I don’t want to make that kind of money … I’m not interested in that. He won’t do it again. He cannot do it again. It will not happen again.”
“My problem isn’t with Chuck Liddell getting in shape or any of that stuff; the problem is Chuck’s chin. Anybody who’s been in this sport long enough knows you used to be able to hit him in the face with a crowbar and you couldn’t even wobble him. That’s not the case anymore. It’s not worth it to me.”
Whats a Chuck to do?
