Back in their day these two were some of the best fighters on the planet.
Chuck ‘The Iceman’ Liddell was a fan favourite back in the day and a former Light-Heavyweight champion. Some of his most famous fights came against fellow UFC Legend Randy Couture, as they faced off three times in their careers.
The pair first fought at UFC 43 in 2003 with Couture picking up the victory. They rematched in 2005 at UFC 52 where Chuck picked up a first round KO defending the belt. Their trilogy fight came in 2006 at UFC 56 – Liddell again getting his hand raised.
Chuck has been retired since 2010 and Randy 2011. Both have been rumoured to come back, most heavily with Bellator as they build their brand on bringing back legends of the sport such as Ken Shamrock, Royce Gracie and Wanderlei Silva.
Fast forward to 2017 and these guys aren’t in as bad of shape as you would think. They were recently filmed sparring together which seemed pretty competitive. Could we see a return to MMA for either fighter in 2017?
