Chuck Liddell out until Spring 2009

In a recent interview, former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell stated that he doesn’t plan to return from his stunning KO loss to Rashad Evans at UFC 88 anytime soon. “I’ll fight sometime in the spring. Probably I’ll go for a fight in the spring so we’ll see who they [the UFC] put me up against.”

With losses in three of his last four fights, some are wondering what more the former champion has to prove in the Octagon.

It’s unclear who Liddell’s opponent will be upon his return because of the long layoff.

With the UFC’s light heavyweight division being so fluid, anything can happen between now and the “Iceman’s” return to the Octagon.
