Liddell with no chance of a title shot in 2009

One look at Chuck Liddell's face at UFC 92 told the story. To elevate himself back into the title hunt, he was hoping for a Wanderlei Silva a win over Quinton Jackson. That didn't happen and now "The Iceman" is blocked in all directions. He'd love a rematch against the new UFC light heavyweight champ Rashad Evans but there's no shot with Jackson, a guy who Liddell is 0-3 against, first in line. Liddell, 39, told RawVegas that if that title shot is way off it may be time to retire. A very sober Stephan Bonnar may have given us the solution to Liddell's quandry.

Bonnar's suggestion that Liddell move to heavyweight isn't the worst idea. He walks around at 225-230 lbs. and he'll certainly be more athletic than most of the big boys. Randy Couture rebuilt his career as a heavyweight why can't Chuck? BloodyElbow has a comprehensive list of who may be next for Liddell. BE sets the favorites for Liddell's desired March/April fight: 1. Shogun Rua 2. Dan Henderson/Rich Franklin loser 3. Keith Jardine.
