“[This] might be the last time you ever see Chuck Liddell fight live or on television; the legend, the Iceman, the man who helped build mixed martial arts.” That was UFC President Dana White’s answer Thursday to radio show host, Carmichael Dave, when he asked White if there was anything he wanted to say to the fans about UFC 97, which takes place this Saturday night, April 18th in Montreal.
After hearing those sad words, Dave replied, “Jesus, you really want to say that?” “Yes. He’s one of my best friends, but this could be it. He helped build this business, but this might be his last fight ever,” said the UFC President.
Chuck Liddell is the favorite to win his fight against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua tomorrow night, according to the odds on BetUS.com. They have Liddell at -200 and “Shogun” at +150.
