Iceman vs Shogun for battle of kitchy nicknames

(I dunno what the fucking story is behind this picture, but there seems to be only two flavors of Iceman pics: Chuck in clubs playing tonsil hockey with hot bitches, and Chuck casually frolicking with gigantic piles of cash. Normally I’d hate him for this but he’s always got a look on his face like he’s surprised and happy to be in such an awesome situation that I can’t help but like the guy.)

Yeah, so word on the street is that Chuck Liddell is gonna be fighting Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua in the UK come June. All I have to say is SWEET. I was getting a bit worried with all that stupid talk of Chuck rematching Keith Jardine, which is about as good of an idea as firing a pellet gun at a propane truck. That fight was a mistake in the first place – a no-win sitch where no one would even remember the fight in 2 years had Chuck won. When he lost it was like the end of the fucking universe, with much gnashing of teeth and lamentation from everyone.

Of course, then Dana put Chuck against Wanderlei (thank Jesus), Chuck beat Wanderlei, and now we can all get on with our lives and back to the UFC booking Chuck against the strongest contenders they’ve got. That’s better for everyone: Liddell gets opponents he actually gives a shit about, ergo he doesn’t spend his nights in clubs or random womens’ vaginas. We get fights that we want to see, ergo we spend money on UFC PPVs. Everyone wins!

**UPDATE** Turns out the picture is a photoshop. Thought it was a bit strange that Chuck had an Australian flag draped over his shoulders. Here’s where the pic came from!

    I’m actually looking foward to that as a possible fight. The winner should get the Rampage / Forrest winner.

    I’m more confused about why Chuck has the Australian flag draped around his shoulders.

  • dan

    fuck everything else apart from the iceman is coming to the uk. i will get tickets even if it involves me selling everything i own!

  • dom@wicombatsports

    thanks for the link, you scurvy web pirate and rapist

    Sidenote: you can fire a pellet gun at a propane tank. Mythbusters tried it recently and even a .45 or shotgun won’t blow it up.

    Not really important but just in case you wanted to fire your pellet gun at a propane tank you’d be in good shape.

    you get 1,000,000 points for saying ergo two fucking times in one fucking article, good job :)

    I will be in the 02 arena London when this one goes off, I assure you all…Nothing will stop me getting tickets for this event….unless the frickin fanclub members go apeshit and if they do!!!!!

    Seriously though, surely Jardine has to have a title shot before Lidell can land one again?…….Im reckoning winner of Forest/Rampage for Jardine so thats not until Sept at the earliest if Forrest/Rampage in June leaving it till Dec/Jan for Lidell to potentially get another shot…

    Still all this won’t matter when Shogun beats him with “effective striking” in the second.

    Of course he’s always surprised, happy, and stoned out of his mind.

    10 years ago he was an accountant.

    Fuck, this year I’m an accountant, and surprised happy and stoned out of my mind doesn’t sound half bad during tax season. Getting beat up in the ring is a lot easier than doing audits for a living.

  • winklepicker

    But why would someone Photoshop some random dude’s head onto Chuck? He’s not gonna like that shit.

  • Accomando

    Mike #5, thanks for the info on propane tanks.

    Anyone else think Chuck will KO sho-gun in the first?

    I mean, Sho-gun’s wild and crazy style, Chuck’s counter punching way of going about things, early KO? IDK, we’ll see!

  • jd

    winklepicker: I hope yer joking. It’s the other way around. That isnt actually chuck there.

  • defthomas

    Yes it is photoshoped and it was done by me few months ago when Chuck took like 500k for Jardine fight. Meeeen i am so proud now that some of my shit is on fightlinker site. I called my all familly and so :D

  • fightlinker

    Pretty good job … hehe much better than my crappy photoshops
