Jon Jones vs. Chuck Liddell? Please, No!

Chuck Liddell

Liddell hasn't fought since 2010 when he lost to Rick Franklin at UFC 115.

But saying "I want to come back!" is different than actually stepping in the cage and fighting.

The return of the "The Iceman" has sparked the interest of fellow former light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who launched a few jabs at Liddell on twitter.

But, like all legendary fighters who miss that glory (and need a paycheck), he's un-retiring!

There has been speculation for a while that Liddell would try to mount a comeback to fighting, and for a while Bellator president Scott Coker was said to be interested in signing him, but ultimately Liddell could be working with De La Hoya.

Cleric, paramilitary leader surge at Iraq elections

Liddell appeared on an episode of The MMA Hour and told Ariel Helwani that he "never stopped missing" his in-ring career. And I kinda hadn't really thought about it much. "I'm serious I'd like a shot at him, but we'll see", said the former light heavyweight champion. The two have fought twice previously, with Liddell winning both fights by knockout, but a trilogy fight has always been on the horizon and now it may finally happen. The former UFC Light Heavyweight champion announced on Monday's MMA Hour; that he is officially coming out of retirement and is in negotiation to take part in a trilogy fight against a rival, Tito Ortiz, later this year.

Given what we know about concussions, CTE, and brain injuries...why would anyone think this is a good idea?

With Chuck Liddell now edging towards his own return to the sport at the grand old age of 48, he called out the former-champion and pound-for-pound number-1 Jones in a rather weird turn of events that had the world scratching their collective heads.

Foster claimed he would have no issue licensing Liddell 'if he passed all his medicals, ' but if any of his tests came back abnormal "or subsequently suggest deterioration in health status", the ARP would side with the decision to not license 'The Iceman'. Just keep him away from a guy like Jones.

Hopefully, the people at Golden Boy realize how much of a mistake bringing Liddell back would be and put the kibosh on his comeback.
