    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Shogun's out, Quack!

    From mmaweekly.com:

    The Ultimate Fighting Championship on Tuesday announced that Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, who had been scheduled to make his return to the Octagon against Chuck Liddell on June 7 in London, will instead be returning to the operating room.

    Rua has been forced to withdraw from his UFC 85 bout with Liddell due a ruptured ACL in his left knee, the same injury that he had surgically repaired following his loss to Forrest Griffin in October at UFC 76.

    The 26-year-old will once again require surgery on the injured knee, but no word is yet forthcoming on when we will be able to return to competition.

    “I’ve never seen Shogun so motivated for a fight like this in years,” said Rua spokesman Eduardo Alonso. “This was like a new beginning for him.”

    Rua, along with his brother Murilo “Ninja” and former Chute Boxe teammate Andre “Dida” Amade and his brother, formed a new camp of their own in Curitiba, Brazil prior to the scheduling of the bout with Liddell. The Rua brothers and Amade, until recently, were all members of the famed Brazilian Chute Boxe camp.

    The promotion says that Liddell’s opponent for UFC 85 at London’s O2 Arena will be announced shortly.

    The thought of fighting Liddell has been known to rip ligaments and crush bones. The actual fighting of Chuck Liddell can also cause damage.

    This is extremely disappointing. Recover quickly, Shogun.

    So who does this leave to fight Chuck? Most of the top guys at 205 are already tied up fighting each other. Machida is fighting Tito, Thiago Silva is fighting Rashad, Forrest is doing TUF with Rampage, Jardine and Wand are fighting each other....Chuck vs. Houston Alexander, maybe?

    I find it ridiculous that you assert Rua is dodging Liddell.
    You're a putz.

    Hendo v Liddell would be good, though it'd be depressing if Dan lost three in a row.

    True, I'd like to see him have some buildup matches, but...he's really the only good fight out there for Liddell, ATM.
