      Last Thursday, I watched Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida demolished “Sugar” Rashad Evans claim the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s Light Heavyweight Title. UFC President Dana White’s main task right now is to find some legit contender to dispute the reign of Lyoto Machida and with UFC’s deep, popular and talent-laden 205 lb rooster, prospect for exciting fight cards are in the books. Elbowing for a spot to take a crack at the light heavyweight title are young bucks waiting for a chance to get to the top of the MMA game but the biggest paycheck is on the possible matches that will feature former light heavyweight champions and contenders slugging it out to earn the right to fight for the Light Heavyweight title.

      The big money would definitely be a dream match pitting former 205 lb champions Forrest Griffin and Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell. Forrest Griffin and Chuck Liddell have lost much of their

      momentum and luster after suffering devastating losses in their last fights - both fighters were defeated by Rashad Evans - but their fan base has not diminished. These fighters delivered exciting matches throughout their careers and have recorded wins against legendary MMA icons – Griffin scored a convincing win over Mauricio “Shogun” Rua while Liddell out punched Randy ” The Natural” Couture and “The Axe Murderer” Wanderlei Silva. Their offstage persona has proven marketability that have fans gravitate into.

      Forrest Griffin is a stand-up fighter with a descent ground game. He likes to stand toe-to-toe with his opponents and wins by delivering heavy punches and submitting his opponent. He has vicious kicks to add to his impressive arsenal of skills. Griffin is a well-rounded fighter that can fight standing up and on the ground. He can keep the fight standing against a striker but his submission skills are ...

      • excellent as he has proven against Mauricio Rua. But the biggest advantage of Griffin is his toughness. Griffin’s toughness is legendary. Oftentimes, he takes punishments during the matches but he always manages to maintain his mental and physical composure. For the match against Liddell, Griffin’s weakness is his punching power. He possesses enough KO punches but he won’t be able to match Liddell’s punching power standing up.

        Chuck Liddell is a counter-puncher who spent most of the fight back-pedaling against opponents and waiting for an opportunity to thrown his legendary right hand. He also has vicious kicks and KO power on both feet. His striking power on his hands has devastated tough opponents like Randy Couture and excellent footwork enables him to use angles to deliver punches through opponent’s defense. Excellent wrestling skills makes Chuck’s takedown defense the best in the business, making him hard to take down and

        finish on the ground. If taken down, he always manages to get back to his feet. But Chuck’s weakness is the wide punches that he delivers, thereby exposing his weak chin. During their match, Rampage Jackson worked through a sloppy body shot and knocked him out cold.

        Who would win? What are the possible outcomes for the match?

        Forrest Griffin, in his trademark intensity should advance towards back-pedaling Chuck Liddell, plays directly to Liddell’s game. Liddell lowers the boom and lands his famous right hand. Liddell’s pinpoint punches can wear down Griffin and the TUF fighter suffers a knockout. Griffin can hope that Liddell backs up a little too much and an opportunity to takedown Liddell presents itself. Griffin can finish him with brutal ground and pound of elbow strikes and punches. If Griffin gets past Liddell’s offense and lands a punch on Liddell’s chin, the match is over.
