Either Chuck Liddell has been putting a lot of makeup over the world’s largest birthmark for years, or we were wrong for claiming his exit from UFC85 had to do with a bad case of the don’t-give-a-shits. I’m still leaning towards the makeup theory, but I thought I’d share the picture that the UFC has put out there as ‘proof’ Chuck wasn’t in the middle of a three week cough syrup / hooker bender. Lucky for them the injury is so visible, or maybe they’d have had to convene a press conference where Dana poked Chuck where it hurt and we’d all speculate on how realistic Chuck’s “Ouch” noises were.
This now leaves the UFC 86 card in shambles. I don’t know what England has done to deserve the shit they’re constantly served, but perhaps if they weren’t such godless bastards than Our Lord wouldn’t lay His Wrath down upon them. Repent, sinners, or you’ll find yourself with cards that will make UFC 72 look like UFC 79.
The UFC is promising to ‘fix things’, but I really have no idea how they’re going to pull that off. I’m sure Dana White is flipping through his rolodex trying to get something off the ground, but all their high-end fighters are either booked up or not the kind of people to selflessly step up and help out (Matt Hughes, anyone?).
