UFC legend Chuck Liddell has no interest in watching Mayweather fight

This Saturday on September 12th, boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather will look to extend his win streak to an immaculate 49-0 when he takes on Andre Berto in Las Vegas, Nevada.

'The Best Ever' was bombarded with criticism after his mega-fight with Manny Pacquiao earlier in May. The fight lacked action, with 'Pac-Man' failing to penetrate Floyd's defense, and Mayweather landing enough crisp counters to earn a lacklustre unanimous decision.

The five-division world champion has vowed to retire after facing Andre Berto on Saturday night, but UFC legend Chuck Liddell won't be tuning in. In an interview with TMZ, the former light-heavyweight champion said he doesn't like Floyd's point-fighting style.

"I just don't like the way he fights," Liddell said. "I mean, I just don't like the way he fights. You know, I'm not a big fan of guys that just score enough points to win a round and win. More power to him, he makes a lot of real good guys like stupid, but I don't wanna watch it."

45-year-old Chuck Liddell retired from MMA in 2010, not long after his devastating loss to Rich Franklin at UFC 115. The Franklin fight marked 'The Iceman's' third consecutive KO loss, two of which occurred in the first round. Liddell now serves as the VP of Business Development within the UFC.
