The press conference preceding UFC 116, to take place this Saturday in Las Vegas, brimmed with hot revelations. Among them, once again organizational president Dana White made it clear one of his biggest stars will never again set foot in the octagon to fight. White was addressing Chuck Liddell, who was knocked out in his last outing, against Rich Franklin.
