Liddell Had Planned On Fighting – White Says No

0

In an interview with ESPN Magizine, Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell states that he had planned on fighting in his scheduled bout with Rashad Evans at UFC 85 in London but Dana White said no.

“I was going to fight, too,” Liddell says. But then White called and said to forget it, to heal up and come back 100 percent.

Pretty ballsy to hop in the cage with a TORN hamstring, not a pulled one but a torn one. Hats off to “The Iceman” for even considering stepping in there.
