UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell spoke recently with FOX Sports Marc Raimondi, and discussed UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

"The Iceman" loves Jones overall game, and his elbows, but says he is not as impressed with Jones' punching power. Liddell, 44, noted that he did not find his own punching power until he started training under John Hackleman, when he was around the same age as Jones is now.

"I think I would have been a horrible matchup for him," said Liddell. "I would have walked through his punches and he wouldn’t have caught me with anything."

"I think it's too early to tell if he finds his punching power -- a good straight, a good hook -- then we'll see. I mean, not only score with it, but hurt somebody. Then we're talking."

"I would have found a way to hit him, and I hit too hard."

Fellow Hackleman student Glover Teixeira fights Jon Jones Saturday night in the main event of UFC 172, live on PPV. And on an appearance on Monday's The MMA Hour, Liddell predicted Teixeira will KO Jones.

"I think he either hurts him with a punch and he shoots and submits him, or knocks him out," said Liddell. "I'm not sure which one, but it's one of those things. Doesn't get past three."  

Now Jones has responded, on UFC Tonight.

"That's not very nice Chuck, not very nice," said Jones with a mocking pout. "You gotta expect Chuck to have his boy's back, and that's what he's doing. He has been coming out with a lot of other stuff, like 'he would walk through my punches if he ever fought me' and 'he would beat me in his prime', and all this type of stuff.

"I am not going to sit here and insult Chuck. He's a very, very loved person by the masses. So I'm just going to keep my mouth shut. So it's like c'mon Chuck just knock it off, I respect you, so chill out."

Host Chael Sonnen asked Jones if he thought it was a conflict of interest for Liddell, now a UFC exec, to take sides in Saturday's fight.

"I think it is a little bit," said Jones. "And at the end of the day of Chuck want's to come out of retirement, I welcome him, to a superfight."

Naturally Liddell responded.

"I'm retired," said Chuck. "I'll let Glover take care of that tomorrow night."

"[Jones] is great. He's beaten all the guys they have right now. He's doing a great job, I'm not saying anything about that and he's still gonna get better. In my prime, yeah, I think I knock him out. Is he in his prime yet? I don't think so, but I'm a fighter and I always think I'm gonna beat everyone in the world."

Right.  Jones is always hiding from the top guys like Shogun, Rashad, Rampage, Vitor, Gustaffson, and Machida.

Yawn.  So tired of hearing from has-beens about how they woulda done this and that back in their prime.  News flash Chuck:  your prime was over ten years ago.  Try living in the present and being respectful of the current champ.  You are a UFC employee now, try showing some professionalsim for chirst sake.

I think it is the same thing that keeps a lot of guys hanging on way too long.

Just can't let it go...but who can blame them really? I am sure they experience some highs that no one else will come close too. Be tough to leave that behind for me too. Phone Post 3.0

Wholesome - What a bunch of fags. Chuck Liddel was one of the greatest fighters to ever live, he has every right to comment.
And he's not even saying anything redundant, he said he would have beat jones in his prime (i agree and have always said this) and he wonders if jones is going to find his power.

So in my humble opinion the two of you running your mouths are bitches... OOOOOHH i just went there
lol @ you 2
bet you feel stupid

Chuck didn't stop becoming a fighter the moment his career ended. Chuck will always be a fighter, and the mentality you need to survive in that world is that you can beat anyone. In your head you need to be number one, and you need to truly believe it. Chuck will always believe he's number one. Why would you be surprised by a comment like this?

 

Everyones opinion here the past year or two has been so one sided. No one even thinks about empathy for a second. "I you don't believe 'x' then you're just wrong and dumb."

Jones has never been dropped or even wobbled.
Why do you assume that if Lidell landed it would be "goodnight"? Why didn't Rampage get slept instead of beating the fuck out of Chuck X2 Phone Post 3.0

Mix6APlix - No. Chuck would have been tossed to the ground and elbowed until the ref stepped in.
Not sure if serious, chuck had an average time of 13 seconds on his pack iirc so... Phone Post 3.0

Jones would have annihilated him.

Prime Chuck vs Silva would be much more interesting.
