by SFUK Holland at 2H2H 2002.
the last fight someone was standing in front
of the fighters hall. His face was familiar
and a second later flashes are going through
my mind: PRIDE 14, Guy Mezger was destroyed
with four full metal jacket right hooks that
made him go KO. I was standing face to face
with Chuck Liddel a.k.a The Iceman. The UFC
fighter was here at the show because he is
training in Holland at the moment. A big guy
when it comes to MMA and we sure would like
to see him fight at 2H2H!
:What do you think of the shows tonight?
Liddel : It was a good show, some
real exciting fights tonight and I had fun.
Especially Gilbert Yvel was good tonight.
I know Gilbert personally so that makes it
even more interesting.
:What is your opinion about the ground rule
here in Holland?
Liddel : Well, its a bit
different, a bit weird for me. I understand
the rule, but it makes the stand up fight
a little bit more exciting I think.
:How is your career going at the UFC?
Liddel : It is going real good.
I was supposed to fight Vitor Belfort in the
next show in may, I was replaced for Tito
Ortiz. But I heard all kind of rumours over
here that it wouldnt continue.
:He is going to play in Big Brother Brazil
or something isnt he?
Liddel : Yes I believe so.
:Are you going to fight in the UFC in May?
Liddel : Yes that is for sure.
SFUK Holland :Who?
Liddel : That is not for sure yet.
There looking for a descent opponent right
:Who would you like to fight in the future?
Liddel : Anybody actually. Wanderlei,
Vitor it doesnt matter.
:Did PRIDE gave you a new contract?
Liddel : No, I fight at the UFC
mostly, so they have to work it out with them.
:So you cant fight in PRIDE now?
Chuck Liddel : Not
without negotiations no.
:What do you think of the fighters in Holland?
Liddel : I like them, they are
good strikers and exciting.
SFUK Holland :What about the ground fighters like
heavyweights like Remco Pardoel and Heath
Liddel : Oh they're good. Yes,
it is just that across the border there are
more ground fighters. But they are getting
there for sure.
: Any words for the fans?
Liddel : keep watching us and we
try to keep the fights exciting!.
:Thanks a lot Chuck!
Liddel : Take care.
