UFC Hall of Famer and long-time Light Heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell spoke to MMA Weekly about the upcoming UFC 145 LHW title fight between Jon Jones and Rashad Evans. Evans, of course, KO'd Liddell at UFC 88 back in 2008.
Liddell, who retired from MMA in 2010 after a KO loss to Rich Franklin at UFC 115, currently works for the UFC in a promotional capacity. He describes his every day duties as "whatever they need me to do."
Liddell says "If you're a betting man you've got to take Rashad at those odds (6-1). I think Evans presents problems that other fighters haven't (to Jones). As long as both guys come in in good shape it should be a pretty even fight."
Liddell also discusses his plans to open an MMA gym near his new house within the year and his post-retirement diet and work out regime.
