Chuck Liddell And Chael Sonnen Involved In Backstage Altercation At Bellator MMA

According to Chael P. Sonnen his mouth nearly got him whooped by UFC retired legend Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell while backstage at a Bellator event.

The odd part of this story, is that it seems to have been a completely avoidable situation, had Bellator themselves not set up Sonnen to be in harms way.

During this week’s pre-fight media event, Sonnen revealed what happened.

Check it out:

“I come into the dressing room and there was Chuck, face-to-face, and it was awkward. And I was doing Eisen and he told me, ‘You got a message for Chuck? He’ll be here tomorrow.’

So I gave him a message to Chuck, thinking he would be there tomorrow. Turned out Chuck was in the back, watching it on a monitor, with my mother.

“So my mom and uncle had to get involved and it was just a big, colossal — I had to go one way and Chuck had to go the other, and it was weird. But I don’t think he’s going to fight again.

I didn’t ask him point-blank because we were too busy yelling at one another, but he looked good, I’ll give him that. I mean, it looked like he was in shape, but I don’t know. I don’t know what he’s going to do.”
