Even though MayÃ‚Â is months and months away, it is never too early to look forward to a UFC event. Especially, when Chuck Liddell (20-3) might be in the mix.
Here's a snip from CBSSportsline.com:
UFC vice president of regulatory affairs Marc RatnerÃ‚Â ... said the UFC is looking to have Chuck Liddell fight again on a card scheduled for Memorial Day Weekend.
The "Iceman" is coming off of aÃ‚Â third round technical knockoutÃ‚Â over Tito Ortiz (15-5) at UFC 66. During the fight, he sustained a finger injury, and it was later revealed that he entered the bout nursing a bad knee.
Without a doubt, Liddell would be ready to go and healed with a five-month layoff from competitive competition inside the Octagon.
It's no surprise that an opponent has not been named. Although the popular choice is Quinton "Rampage" Jackson (26-6), who beat Liddell back in 2003.
However, Rampage only has one fight remaining on theÃ‚Â contract that was carried over from the WFA acquisition. And, he has said numerous times that he wants at least one more fight before a monster showdown with the champ.
There aren't many other Liddell fights that fans want to see.
Except, maybe, Wanderlei???
