Chuck Liddell: In my prime, I would have walked through Jones' punches and KO'd him

Quote:
Chuck Liddell thinks Jon Jones is an excellent talent and great UFC light heavyweight champion. But the UFC Hall of Famer believes in his prime, he would have upended the young phenom.

Liddell loves Jones' overall game, but is not at all impressed with his punching power. He thinks if the two would have fought in his prime, he would have knocked Jones out.

"I think I would have been a horrible matchup for him," Liddell told FOX Sports. "I would have walked through his punches and he wouldn’t have caught me with anything."

In his prime, "The Iceman" was nearly impossible to take down and had one of the most legendary chins in the game. For those reasons, Liddell believes he would have given Jones a tough time. Ever the competitor, Liddell doesn't even really like talking about it, because it'll never happen outside of the new EA Sports UFC video game. But of course he believes he would win.

"I would have found a way to hit him," Liddell said, "and I hit too hard."

Eh.... Maybe, Chuck. Would've been an interesting fight that's the only definite thing.

well, we'll see what Glover does. If Glover can't touch him up then Liddell wouldn't have been able to do it either.

So you're 0/2

Liddell was taken down and pummeled by Rampage in his supposed prime. Then pummeled again. This ain't Jeremy Horn or Vernon White here.
