Retired UFC Star Chuck Liddell Says Jake Paul Would Have ‘No Chance’ Against Him
Liddell has not fought since getting knocked out in 2018.
UFC legend Chuck Liddell may be retired, but he said he’d make a comeback for Jake Paul.
Paul has been getting callouts from MMA fighters more so after the news that he signed with the PFL for an exclusive, multi-fight and multi-year contract. Liddell added his name to the list of people who wouldn’t turn down a fight from the YouTuber-turned-boxer, and now, MMA fighter.
“Sure, MMA? He wants to fight me in MMA now, I’d be down for that,” Liddell told Inside Fighting.
“He doesn’t want to fight me though. That’s alright. Good luck with it. I’m retired, I’m 53, man. Come on.
“But again, he’s got no chance. For sure [I’d sign a contract]. If he offered enough money, sure.”
Liddell, a former UFC light heavyweight champion, retired from the sport in 2010.
He made a short return in 2018 when he faced rival Tito Ortiz in a trilogy fight, but was taken out by a first round knockout.
Paul, who has mainly faced retired MMA fighters in his boxing bouts, recently said that he’s done with fighting older opponents and will now target younger ones. He recently defeated 47-year-old Anderson Silva over the summer.
