TUF 11 conference call with Chuck Liddell
Hope Jake Shields comes to the UFC, at 170
"I hope he comes over to the UFC, it'd be great. He's got a fight coming up soon at 185. He moved up to 185 ... He really needs to come back to his weight class, come back to the UFC and make a run at it there."
"Jake's one of the guys I used to train, actually. He's come a long way with his stuff. He's done some interesting stuff -- he's got some interesting fine points with his front chokes, and things like that. I grabbed a couple of things."
Tito is a scum bag
"I’ve heard the rumors, of course, but from what I understand, he has signed to fight and is actually going to show up and get the beating that he’s supposed to get. I think I earned it, having to put up with him for seven weeks. … I’ve heard the rumors too, and I hope that’s not true, because I think I earned the right to punch him."
"Tito said I had an intervention in November. I don’t know where that came from. …to make things up about my personal life, he’s a scum bag."
"Now he pissed me off enough so that now instead of training for a tune-up fight, I’m training to hurt him. I’m training to go out there and beat him. He did the worst thing he could have done... he motivated me to train."
"I miss fighting… and I miss knocking someone out. That’s what I miss most."
I was going to beat Tito in his own living room
"Tito complaining that people talking about personal life things is insane. I remember back before he fought Vitor, he said in an interview, ‘I don’t date white trash bitches like Chuck’ on a radio interview.
Now the sad thing about that was he was talking about ‘Star Magazine’ that said I was dating Juliette Lewis, which obviously wasn’t true. She’s a nice person, but we weren’t dating. I met her a couple of times … But he was referring to her, he said, when I confronted him about it and warned him not to do that again or I’d beat him in his own living room. I told him not to talk about my family ever again or I’d beat him in his own living room, and he apologized in front of all of his friends."
