Chuck Liddell has heard the criticisms of his recently published training footage, and thinks people should step off.
After some video went out of the UFC Hall of Famer hitting pads, fans and pundits alike questioned the speed and ability of Liddell at such an advanced age. According to Liddell himself, those critics are way off base, and they don’t know the real story.
“They put out a video of me warming up my legs right when I got to the gym,” Liddell said. “I don’t know why they would – out of all the video they took – why they would choose to put that out, I have no idea. I challenge anyone talking trash about it to take one of those kicks I was throwing anyway. They’re not that soft. I was just warming up my legs the way I like to do it. I was just warming up my legs, so it is what it is.”
“Right now I’m going to get through this fight and see what happens,” Liddell said. “I’m interested in fighting a lot of people once it’s over. We’ll see what happens though. It all depends on how this fight goes and how I feel when I’m done with it and how my body feels. But I got here in shape and healthy and ready to go.”
