Liddell ''Shogun is not among the greatest fighters''

Quote:
One of the greatest legends of MMA, Chuck Liddell is in Belo Horizonte to follow the UFC 147. The stay in the brazilian territory made ​​the american fighter remember that he has fought with big Brazilian stars of the sport.

One occurred in the penultimate fight of his career when he faced Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua, former PRIDE champion and UFC. The curious thing is that, despite losing by knockout in the first round, Liddell does not consider that the Brazilian is among the best fighters in MMA today.

"Shogun is not among the greatest fighters, and will not even be. He needs much more to reach the level of Anderson Silva, for example, "said" The Iceman ".

The american will be at the ''Mineirinho'' arena on Saturday (23) to attend the UFC 147.

I do agree Anderson is on a higher level, but Shogun is great and has a very great resume. At least on par with Liddell's. So if Shogun is not great, Liddell is not great either.

Well no one is as great as Anderson Silva, except maybe GSP or Fedor. No shame in that, Shogun has fought better competition then Chuck and has a better record then Chuck!

Wow. At first I read it as Shogun saying Chuck wasnt among the greats. Either way its complete BS! Sure he may not be ranked alongside Anderson but neither will Chuck.

If I made a greatest fighters list, shogun would probably be on there but at a low ranking.

Well, if Anderson is the standard for being 'great' Shogun isn't great. Neither is Chuck or anyone else except maybe Fedor and GSP.

Pretty much. Which is probably what Chuck means that he's not Anderson Silva , GSP great.

Anderson, GSP and Fedor are currently above everyone else. But Shogun is among the best LHW's ever and also overall has one of the greatest resume's of any MMA fighter:

Griffin
Machida
Coleman
Liddell
Overeem x2
Randleman
Diabate
Arona
Lil Nog
Rampage

That's a great list of wins.
