Jon Jones Responds To Chuck Liddell Call-Out In Bizarre Meeting Of Old & New

Two of the most iconic light-heavyweights in the history of the UFC were involved in a rather strange back-and-forth following Liddell’s intention to return to MMA.

In the list of all-time fantasy matchups between the eras of mixed martial arts, you’d be hard-pressed to find a pairing that would excite the fans as much as a scrap between the pair of former light-heavyweight champions, Chuck Liddell and Jon Jones.

And while most who know both fighters wouldn’t see the hypothetical matchup as one that is overly competitive, that hasn’t stopped everyone else from wondering at how both men – at their respective peaks – would fare against each other inside the UFC octagon.

With Chuck Liddell now edging towards his own return to the sport at the grand old age of 48, he called out the former-champion and pound-for-pound number-1 Jones in a rather bizarre turn of events that had the world scratching their collective heads.

Jon Jones’ eventual response was a lot more direct than many had anticipated.
