Chael Sonnen Looking to Fight Chuck Liddell in Bellator?
Posted By: Caylon Knox on Aug 05, 2017
Veteran mixed martial arts fighter Chael Sonnen spoke with FloCombat.com a few days ago and said that he would like for his next opponent in Bellator to be former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and 2009 UFC Hall of Fame Inductee, Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell. Sonnen gave the following comments:
"I think the most likely opponent is going to end up being Chuck Liddell," Sonnen told FloCombat. "We'll see what happens there, but that's what I think is going to happen.
"The way it works is eventually I'll get a call or a text from [Bellator president Scott] Coker telling me who he wants me to fight and when, and I'll text him back to accept. It'll be done just like that. I won't be part of a discussion or turn down anyone they want me to fight. I never have and I never will, and they can make it any weight class they want.
"I think there are actual legs to this Chuck thing. I really do."
The 40-year-old Chael Sonnen recently picked up a victory over the legendary Wanderlei "The Axe Murderer" Silva at Bellator 180 back in June. This victory brought Sonnen's overall professional record to 30-15-1. Chuck Liddell, 47, has not fought since UFC 115 back in June of 2010 when he suffered a knockout loss at the hands of Rich Franklin. Liddell retired after that fight but has never completely ruled out the possibility of a comeback. Liddell holds a professional fight record of 21-8.
