I tend to agree with Chuck Liddell when he is asked his stance on the post-fight fracas that went down between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor Mcgregor. The Iceman weighed in and felt the same way that many people felt. The UFC needs to stop rewarding fighters who cross the line.
Again, no one is saying what Khabib Nurmagomedov did was right. However, Conor McGregor’s actions leading up to their fight were so low that it’s understandable why Khabib did what he did.
A lot of what we are seeing in the UFC is favoritism of popular fighters. Conor McGregor and Jon Jones have habitually crossed the line and both are able to fight right now. If there are no consequences for their actions MMA will keep spiraling downward.
As Chuck preps for his return fight against Tito Ortiz, he’s still keeping this MMA thing in perspective.
