Well, this is an interesting hypothetical matchup. Chuck certainly has the size and takedown defense to match up with Bones, but Bones is also Bones – the best light heavyweight ever. While I’ve personally gone on the record saying that Chuck’s gym mate, Glover Teixeira, will beat Jones, which may in turn mean Chuck would beat him? I don’t know. MMA Math is weird.
Chuck said this to FOX:
“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.”
“I would have found a way to hit him,” Liddell said, “and I hit too hard.”
