Chuck ‘The Iceman’ Liddell is excited and ready to battle Rich Franklin at UFC 115. After resting his body for a little over a year now, Liddell explains how retirement is out of the question at this point in his career. On the contrary, he feels like he has a lot of fight left in him still and is ready to prove it on June 12.
He even mentions how much he enjoys watching the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu of Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza…
From Chuck Liddell:
“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.”
