Cage Rage

News and Notes

- UFC President Dana White fielded a series of questions concerning Chuck Liddell yesterday mainly concerning the status of Liddell’s health and the date of his next fight.

White said that Liddell is now out of the hospital and is now the road to recovery from a bout pneumonia. White also stated that Liddell will be fighting on May 26th in Las Vegas against an opponent that has yet to be named. The big rumor floating around is that Liddell was put his belt up against Quinton Jackson who has decided not to have another fight before getting a title shot.

The biggest question has to be whether or not Liddell is going to be physically ready for the biggest fight of his career after being sick for so long…

- Cage Rage has struck a television deal with Sky Sports in England and the station will broadcast Cage Rage 21 on April 21st.

“Cage Rage and Sky Sports have confirmed the deal,” said Cage Rage promoters in a public statement made over the weekend. “Cage Rage Championships are pleased to further cement their relationship with Sky Sports and as the biggest UK based MMA event in Europe, have once again raised the bar to bring you another spectacular fight night from Wembley Arena.”

“We have worked with Sky Sports for about three years now,” said promoter Andy Geer. “But this deal is something else. When Sky Sports throw their considerable advertising budget at this event it will pack sports bars up and down the country and finally put our wonderful sport live in the homes of millions of people.”
