Chuck Liddell once again drops major hint surrounding potential comeback

Chuck Liddell

For a time, it sounded as though former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell would almost certainly return to the cage. We learned that he’d met with Bellator boss Scott Coker, while current Bellator star Chael Sonnen assured that a bout with the UFC legend was a very real possibility. Then, however, this possibility was stomped out. Liddell assured there would be no comeback, and even Sonnen admitted it wasn’t going to happen.

But hold on… what’s this?

On Wednesday afternoon, Liddell took in Instagram with a post that, once again, seems to imply his gearing up for a comeback.


“This is what I work for,” Liddell said in his post. “This is my motivation. I’ll never regret any of the hard work, hardship, sacrifices I’ve made to have this life, not for one second. I was told by a good friend “everyone wants what you have but none of these guys are willing to do what you do” if you want something you have to be willing to put in the work. Anything worth having takes work and a lot of it. When you’re willing to do whatever it takes to make your dreams come true anything is possible. Now I am back at it and it is grueling but I couldn’t feel better about where I am at right now!”

The key here, of course is that Chuck Liddell says, point-blank, “now I’m back at it.” Is he simply referring to the training grind, or does he mean that he’s preparing to return? We’ll have to wait and see.
