Always expect the unexpected....
I would love to see Chuck come back for one more big fight, maybe a rematch with Wandy or something, but I think competing at the same level as he used to is out of the question.

There comes a time when you are damaging your legacy by continuing to fight. A lot of fighters face this criticism when their skills diminish and the constant stress of training and fighting finally catches up with their bodies. A lot of fighters keep coming back when they shouldn't and it's hard to watch sometimes. The three KO's that Chuck has suffered is enough to kill a fighters chances of being on top of the mountain. Of course Chuck has earned the right to come back and fight if he chooses, but in my eyes he has nothing left to prove. Probably time to hang em' up champ.

Oh listen to you...

As if it's wrong to voice and have an opinion on the subject. Of course he will make up his own mind.

Not little ol' me.... I could only wish that my opinion mattered that much.

But sadly it is probably time he gives some strong consideration to retirement.

I'm sure its going through his mind...but I think he should just content himself with fighting lower down the card....you know...slowly wind down...then when he next wins...retire...but get that last win first

I agree, I would like to see him go out on a win, but it looks like Dana White does not want him to fight anymore. He said this in a recent interview.

Quote:
“Chuck is not going to fight again, I guarantee you that,” White said. “We did it. We came from making $500 [to appear] and $500 [to win] to the point where he became the richest, most famous mixed martial artist in the world. He did it by listening to me. That’s not going to change.”

Dana White says all manner of things...give him time...I reckon He'll take Chuck on again...of course...Chuck may not aggree to his new terms if they mean a substantial pay cut

Oh, I am sure he would take him on again if the timing was right, and it was the right fight. But it's funny how Dana says things so "matter of factly", as if because he says it, it must be true.

Practise.

He likes...and really does sound very convincing...its part of his job, perhaps the part of it he does best.
