Chael Sonnen To Chuck Liddell: ‘I Will Fight You Right Now’

Chael Sonnen is coming off of a win against MMA legend Wanderlei Silva. Now he’s setting his sights on another one of MMA’s big names, former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and Hall of Famer “The Iceman” Chuck Liddell.

Liddell hasn’t fought in seven years, and he lost his last three fights via knockout. But he still carries some major status in the MMA world, and Sonnen wants him as the “crowning moment” on his “legends a**-whipping tour.”

“I got called out on TMZ – I don’t know if it’s a call out but I’m using that term – by Chuck Liddell.” Chael said on his You’re Welcome With Chael Sonnen podcast, “‘Chael Sonnen would be a perfect warm up fight’ for his comeback. TMZ got ahold of me to respond. I never miss big media opportunities and TMZ is huge but this one I just sat it out. First time ever I’ve told TMZ I’m gonna pass on the interview because I didn’t know what to say and I still don’t, other than the truth: I will fight you right now Chuck. This was my idea. I’m the one that suggested you come in on my legends ass-whipping tour and be my crowning moment. That’s the truth. Chuck does not have a contract with any organization. Bellator would sign him and would make that fight and did sit down with him and told him that but he didn’t sign. Instead he went back to TMZ and pretended he wanted the fight.”

As Chael is involved with Bellator and Chuck is still involved with the UFC, there might be some problems in getting this fight together.

But if it does go down, who’s leaving with the “W” next to his name?
