  • Top 5 Forum Threads of the Week By: Jeff Sherwood

    Few fighters brought the masses to a boil like Chuck Liddell. | Photo: Sherdog.com



    Chuck Liddell never lacked confidence.

    In an interview with Fox Sports, Liddell put forth the idea that in his prime he could have beaten current Ultimate Fighting Championship light heavyweight titleholder Jon Jones. “The Iceman” held the 205-pound championship Jones now wears for more than two years, from April 16, 2005 until May 26, 2007.

    “I think I would have been a horrible matchup for him,” Liddell said. “I would have walked through his punches, and he wouldn’t have caught me with anything.”

    Jones shredded Liddell’s longtime training partner Glover Teixeira with a series of standing elbows, as he successfully defending the light heavyweight crown for a record seventh time with a one-sided unanimous decision over the Brazilian in the UFC 172 main event on April 26. “Bones” has rattled off 11 straight victories since his December 2009 encounter with Matt Hamill ended in disqualification.

    Liddell, 44, retired in 2010 following consecutive knockout losses to Rashad Evans, Mauricio Rua and Rich Franklin. He remains one of MMA’s most beloved figures.

  • How Chuck Liddell Helped Spark Jake Shields’ MMA Career By: Sherdog.com Staff

    Jake Shields, on “Beatdown,” discussing how he got into MMA:

    “I was just a young kid and I stumbled across it. I was wrestling in college and I stumbled across Chuck Liddell, seeing him with his funny haircut and karate tattoos. I thought he was some fake douchebag, so I went up and ran into him and talked to him a little bit, came by the gym and I got my ass kicked by Chuck. All of a sudden I fell in love with the sport. I started pretty much fighting right away. I think in three to four weeks I was in my first fight. I didn’t really have much planned. It was something that I loved. I fell in love with it instantly and then slowly turned it into a career.”

  • Mike Bohn Joins Press Row By: Jordan Breen





    Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by MMAJunkie contributor Mike Bohn.

    With Jon Jones' seventh defense of the UFC light heavyweight title upcoming against Glover Teixeira at UFC 172, Breen and Bohn discuss Jones' difficulties in painting himself in a flattering light. The two investigate Jones' myriad social media disasters, including his recent Instagram nightmare, and the radically different ways he deals with the MMA media versus mainstream media appearances like “Live with Michael and Kelly.” Also up for debate: whether or not “Jonny Bones” already is the best light heavyweight in history and the oft-repeated question of when if ever he'll blossom into a pay-per-view megastar.

    Breen and Bohn also discuss former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell's public criticisms of Jones, why his critiques are statistically invalid, Liddell and fellow UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes as UFC ambassadors and the irony of Rich Franklin being offered a One FC job.
