Liddell Believes He Would Have K.O.’d Jon Jones During His Fighting Prime.
UFC legend Chuck Liddell is a fan of Jon Jones’ overall skill set except for one area; punching power.
Liddell told FoxSports that in his prime, he would have taken care of business against the current light heavyweight champ.
“I think I would have been a horrible matchup for him,” Liddell said. “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 and I hit too hard.”
Jones (19-1) is 26-years-old and has defended the belt a record six times.
Liddell, who retired in 2010 and now holds an executive job with the UFC. Now 44, Liddell had 13 Kos in 21 victories.
So what do you think? In a hypothetical matchup, would Liddell pull out the win? Or is Jones’ overall game too much for the “Iceman?”
