Chuck \

In the madness that was UFC 85, former light-heavyweight champion Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell was scheduled to fight Mauricio “Shogun” Rua; unfortunately for Liddell, that didn’t come to pass, due to a hamstring injury.  In an interview with’s Jon Gorajski, Liddell discusses his injury, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Anderson Silva and some other subjects:

MMANEWS.COM: Thank you for taking the time to speak exclusively with us today.  How is your injured hamstring?

Chuck Liddell: It’s working pretty well right now.  I’m back in training and I’m very excited about it. I’ve been working out since I got hurt it’s just that I wasn’t able to do everything I wanted to do.  I had to work around the injury.  I wasn’t able to spar or wrestle at all.  I was just doing mainly my strength and conditioning.

MMANEWS.COM: Would you say your health right now is at 100%?

Chuck Liddell: Yeah I would say I’m hoping to be close to 100%.  As long as nothing happens to it, I’ll be fine.  I have been swimming and rowing.  The last few weeks I’ve been hitting the bags and started sparring and wrestling a little bit.  I feel good and am starting up training camp soon.  It’s going good!

MMANEWS.COM: How are things and training with John Hackleman and “The Pit”?

Chuck Liddell: Pit is doing great! Still have the same group of guys that I’ve been working hard with.
