Don't call it a comeback - at least not yet.

Long-retired ex-UFC light heavyweight champ Chuck Liddell has repeatedly teased a return to the cage of late, and after being promptly voted off the latest season of "Celebrity Big Brother," he told TMZ Sports on Monday he's been training regularly in case the right opportunity arises.

"It’s still a possibility, for sure," Liddell said. "So I didn’t want to get too far out of shape. I was in there boxing the whole time. There’s a lot of stuff that they didn’t show but I was just having a good time in there and staying in shape. I’m staying ready."

As for who he'd like to square off with in a would-be comeback, the 48-year-old mentioned a pair of rivals and UFC alumni in Chael Sonnen and two-time conquest Tito Ortiz. Sonnen now competes under the Bellator banner, while Ortiz retired in January of last year.

Mike Fisher calls Filip Forsberg suspension ‘a joke’

  Mike Fisher calls Filip Forsberg suspension ‘a joke’ Mike Fisher has taken to Twitter to call out the NHL after his former (and future) Nashville Predators teammate Filip Forsberg was suspended three games for an interference play. After the NHL’s department of player safety tweeted out a video explaining their decision, Fisher quote-tweeted it and wrote “This is a joke.”https://twitter.com/mikefisher1212/status/960274978720702466The suspension was given to Forsberg after he hit New York Rangers forward Jimmy Vesey with a high check behind the Rangers net. There was no penalty on the initial play although Vesey was bleeding and had to leave the game.

"I’ve said it before in the news, Chael would be a good warm-up fight to get back into it. Tito would be great if he’d even consider fighting me. I hear he wouldn’t. He doesn’t want to fight me at all. He’ll fight other people but not me, of course.

"It depends on who they offer. I’m down for just about anything."

Liddell claimed the UFC's light heavyweight crown with a KO of Randy Couture in April 2005 and defended it four times. He hung up his gloves in late 2010 after suffering his third straight knockout loss in a dance with Rich Franklin at UFC 115.
