Last night the UFC Tonight Twitter account tweeted the following from the show:
Super-fight alert: @JonnyBones just said if @ChuckLiddell wanted to come out of retirement he’d be down for a super-fight. #UFC

While Liddell retired in 2010 following a brutal knockout loss to former middleweight champion Rich Franklin, he has rarely shied away from ripping fighters still in the sport. In recent months, though, he has focused on Jones.
Obviously this is not an option. Former light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell’s chin is gone and Jon Jones is in his prime. It seems easy for Jones to take a shot at the aging Iceman. Dana would never allow it – or would he?
