Sounds like this may actually happen.

Talk about a waste. Why is Bellator bringing Liddell in who is nearly 50 and whose prime ended over a decade ago? The guy needs to realize it's over.

I don't agree with it either unless Chuck is broke from what I heard with the rumors not to mention the zombies will definitely will say Bellator can only get old guys or people who were never that good.

That would be a big signing if they can get him.

Sadly, it wouldn't surprise me. Liddell not only was notorious for partying but he doesn't come off as someone who saved his money and maybe is someone who likes the high life. It also doesn't help he probably thought he always would collect a paycheck from the UFC and the gravy train would never end.

Just read that Chuck and Tito are working with Golden Boy promotions to complete their trilogy so we might not be seeing Chuck in Bellator after all.

Would be interesting of Golden Boy made a permanent MMA commitment, would be another competitor in the market.

Better off. Bellator already has a lot of nostalgia and don't need anymore. This whole thing is a stupid and bad idea.

Yeah, Chuck is too old for MMA and he has taken some KOs. He should be done with the sport.

Looks like Chuck wants to fight Jon Jones. Let's be honest Jon would destroy chuck in a mma fight hell Jon would destroy even a prime chuck.

With Chuck personally I would put 4th I would have Jones shogun Wanderlei Silva ahead of him.

Yeah, Liddell is annoying as he's been calling out Jones for years even though Jones would destroy him. A prime Liddell wouldn't stand a chance. It's not a popular opinion but Liddell is one of the most overrated fighters ever as he was on top when UFC was second to PRIDE which meant UFC had a weak Light Heavyweight division, he struggled whenever put against strikers, and a lot of his prime saw him in fights with stylistically favored opponents.

I would also put Frank Shamrock & Rampage Jackson ahead of Liddell.

Chuck was still a live dog though when he was in his prime.

He once said he wanted to fight Wanderlei, then Crocop, then Fedor.

I think Crocop would have destroyed him and Fedor would have killed him.

But Chuck always had heart, and a fighter with power is always in a fight.

Chuck was one of the more innovative fighters to come on the seen, as one of the pioneers of the sprawl and brawl approach. Maurice Smith and Bas Rutten were among the still earlier fighters to incorporate takedown defense with striking, although Chuck Liddell was probably more impressive in his ability to defend takedowns and strike. But he was a less technical striker, though he relied a lot on his power.

Mirko Crocop fought in a similar way, but he took it to another level.

I appreciate Chuck Liddell, but I probably agree with the relative rankings above.

I thought Frank Shamrock was more of a middleweight though. I know he fought Tito Ortiz, but it seems like he was generally smaller.

I think of all-time rankings as mostly for entertainment though. Chuck Liddell did have a good run. But Pride had the better fighters and much deeper talent. Maurcio Rua is also clearly ahead of Chuck on my list. Dan Henderson is too. Henderson-Liddell would have been a good fight if they would have ever crossed paths.

I was a Chuck fan as well. I would also put him ahead of Wand since he beat Wand but behind Shogun. I would put Hendo ahead of him as well. Chuck/Hendo would have made for one interesting fight, I agree.
