Chuck Liddell retirement is still in the evaluation phase


Unfortunately, the "Iceman" still feels he's got something left in the tank ... maybe:

"I’m still working on evaluating. I thought I did great before I was caught. I have to look at it some more and think about it. I think I looked good and I definitely was in great shape. I could have kept that pace up for another four rounds, without a doubt.... It’s hard to beat that [aggressiveness] out of me, because that’s who I am and that’s who I’ve been for a long, long time. People like watching me because of the way I fight, so it’s hard to get me not to fight that way. There’s a lot still to think about. I felt pretty good and I think showed I can compete. I’m not going to rush and I’ll do what I think is best. I’m just not at a point to make that decision yet."

Three straight knockout losses. Dropped five of his last six fights. 40 years old. Head trainer and best friend (who also happens to be his boss, Dana White) both want him to hang up the gloves. Is there really a lot more to think about for the UFC Hall of Famer?
