Jon Jones Responds To Chuck Liddell's Callout

Chuck Liddell

Liddell said a deal has yet to be finalized with Golden Boy but tentative plans are for the fight to go down in November in either Las Vegas or California. He told Helwani that his return "does not hinge on Tito's participation".

What was even more surprising was the fact he called out the supremely talented but always troubled Jon Jones for a match-up after he had two fights under his belt. Am I going to do all of this and not fight?' Oh no, we had to have somebody backing up, and if it doesn't work out with him, I'm (still) going to give it a shot.

While it would be a match-up of two of the greatest champions in the storied UFC light heavyweight division, it's obviously a hard fight to get behind considering Liddell is nearly 50. He's been linked to a trilogy fight with Tito Ortiz for his comeback in the meantime, supposedly under Oscar de la Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions. In case any spectator thought Lidell was possibly joking, he swiftly put that thought to bed, continuing, "I'm serious. It'll be somebody else, one of the guys from my past probably, most likely, and we'll see where I'm at". You're entitled to your opinion and what you think. "I'd like a shot at him". "It's an option and we are working on it, so we will see".

There is a lengthy 18-year gap between the two fighters in age (Liddell 48 to Jones' 30) and about as zero of a chance of the fight happening as there has ever been for anything.

The ensemble cast in " The Last Man on Earth " has consistently been one of the strongest and most overlooked casts on television. But why did Fox cancel the series in the first place? "We always wondered how it would do if it was prioritized more", she said.

In the three tweets, he posted: "Old Chuck has been calling me out for years!".

Some don't want to see a near-50-year-old compete again while others are criticising Jones for calling out a fighter out of his prime while he's not allowed to compete himself as he faces a four-year suspension with the sanction still unknown as the adjudication process is still ongoing. I normally try to respect my elders but if you want it come get it. Id literally fly you out to Albuquerque this weekend.

"You might want to test the strength of that jaw before you take a bite you can't chew".
