“It was Dana White who talked about my retirement. He started this cheap talk. I just gave my body a rest. I've being fighting for many years and needed a little time off. But now the Iceman is back. Some time ago I used to train with a kimono. I started training jiu-jitsu in 1997 and every day I learn something new and try to be better at it. I like striking but if I haven’t got good jiu-jitsu and wrestling then I won’t be a good striker. I enjoyed watching Ronaldo Jacaré fight at Strikeforce against Matt Lindland. His jiu-jitsu is amazing. He’s the kind of fighter I like to see."
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu purple belt Chuck Liddell reinforces the retirement matter was up to president Dana White and as far as we can notice the veteran is ready to be back inside the Octagon. "The Iceman" has been training the sweet art for thirteen years and it's part of his preparation to be a complete mixed martial artist. Known for his heavy punches, Chuck would surprise the audience of UFC 115 with a submission win over Rich "Ace" Franklin. Would you also like to see it, Maniacs?
