UFC Quick Quote: Liddell camp eyes fight with Shogun


"He's [Chuck Liddell] already said he'll be back in the gym next Monday. He's going to fight again, hopefully as soon as possible, maybe in December. We're looking at ‘Shogun.' ... Chuck will face anyone they put in front of him... You're dealing with a guy that just lost a fight, is totally depressed right after a humungous loss. Of course, he's disappointed. We didn't get into details about the fight, especially after a loss, because that's not the time you want to talk about it. We usually talk about it when we get back in the gym."

-- John Hackleman -- the long-time trainer for former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell -- clears up all the retirement talk with and even mentions a possible opponent, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua. Liddell and Shogun were both upset over the weekend in their respective bouts. In the post-fight UFC 76 press conference, UFC President Dana White also mentioned that Liddell-Shogun was a possibility.
