Jon Jones tells Chuck Liddell to 'Come get it'

Chuck Liddell Officially Out Of Retirement, Vowing To Fight Tito Ortiz This November

Chuck Liddell Officially Out Of Retirement, Vowing To Fight Tito Ortiz This November

He came right out and said it to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour: "I will fight again".

"It does not hinge on Tito's participation", Liddell said. Unfortunately, it looks like a promotion already had Liddell's worst interests in mind, and that promotion is Golden Boy, who is lining up a fight between Liddell and fellow retirement circuit participant (and former Liddell blood rival) Tito Ortiz. In case any spectator thought Lidell was possibly joking, he swiftly put that thought to bed, continuing, "I'm serious".

Liddell did go on to say that if the fight with Ortiz doesn't happen, he will still fight again and his opponent would likely be someone from his past. "We will see. Just, match styles". You're entitled to your opinion and what you think. If I can't fight, if I don't feel like I can perform or go out there and perform, I wouldn't. "It's an option and we are working on it, so we will see".

In all seriousness @ChuckLiddell I appreciate your offer for a fight, but due to scheduling conflicts may not be able to fulfill till mid 2019.


If Oscar De La Hoya is not the man to get Lidell back into competition and if Dana White does not budge on his position, Jon Jones has personally stepped forward to give Chuck Lidell the opportunity he's been asking for whenever the legend is ready to make the commute to Albuquerque on Jones' dime.

Some don't want to see a near-50-year-old compete again while others are criticising Jones for calling out a fighter out of his prime while he's not allowed to compete himself as he faces a four-year suspension with the sanction still unknown as the adjudication process is still ongoing.

Old Chuck has been calling me out for years! Jones wrote on Twitter. I get it, I hold pretty much every record in the division. I normally try to respect my elders but if you want it, come get it.

Jones followed up by proclaiming he "might want to test the strength of that jaw" before jumping back into the fire.
