Dana White Says Loss For Liddell At UFC 115 Ends Career

0

Remember the last time Chuck Liddell lost and Dana White tried to push him into retirement? Even going so far as to say that was his last fight? Well, that obviously didn't happen because Liddell will be back in action this Saturday at UFC 115 but it looks like Dana White is full of business this time around:

“Yes [a loss at UFC 115 would be the end of Chuck Liddell's career], and I think he will say the same thing. But let me tell you what the difference is – the difference before, when I wanted him retired, was that he wasn't doing the right thing. He was out partying every night and doing the wrong thing not the right thing. He wasn't living the life of a professional athlete… He and I sat down and talked and I will tell you what, he has kept his word. He has been phenomenal shape since the beginning of The Ultimate Fighter and it will be interesting to see how he does. Because Rick Franklin is tough, he is no joke. He had that war with Dan Henderson that many people believe he won, he had the war with Wanderlei Silva – he has fought all the best in the world.”
