Chuck Liddell Says He Would Beat Anderson Silva And Chael Sonnen

Former UFC light heavyweight champion, Chuck Liddell claimed this week that in his prime he could have defeated current “pound for pound” king-pin, Anderson Silva in the octagon, also saying in his mind Chael Sonnen would have had nothing to offer him in terms of risk.

Lidell, speaking via Fighters Only Magazine said:

“I would beat him, I always said that I would. I have the advantage in weight and height, so it would be more likely that I would beat him. But Anderson is one of my favorite fighters.”

As for a hypothetical fight with Chael Sonnen, who recently failed to take the light-heavyweight crown from Jon Jones, Liddell was even more emphatic.

“Sonnen has nothing to offer me (in terms of risk).”
