Chuck Liddell on why he doesn't like GSP and Jones playing it safe
Chuck Liddell was on Inside MMA and he spoke on GSP and Jones. He's said his number one problem with MMA today is guys playing it safe. I'll try to type out most of what he said.....
"I love St. Pierre, I think he's a great fighter. I just wish he's open it up a little bit. He doesn't want to tarnish a legacy, doesn't want to take a risk. Ever since he got knocked out by Serra he's been playing it safe.
I said that about Jon Jones, that time he didn't take the fight on short notice. His excuse that he was a southpaw, and he wasn't training for a southpaw,.......it's Chael...Chael Sonnen. He's not a slick south paw, you just fought a southpaw, you just fought Lyoto. You're supposed to be the best 205 pounder in the world and you're worried about a guy that just lost twice at 185? I think you need to bonafy anyone, anytime, anywhere.
I mean it's not like they asked him to take a short notice fight, i mean, you're the champion you shouldn't have to take a short notice fight, but if you've been through a full camp and you're healthy? If I've been through a full camp and I'm healthy? I'll fight anybody rather than not have a fight. I want to get paid."
