“I was told he got knocked out,” Liddell said to TMZ Sports (via Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie). “If he got knocked out, then I think that cancels the fight. I mean, you’ve got to take some time off after that and recover. He’s going to have to at least postpone it for a little bit.”
The bout between Lentz and Penn hasn’t been given a date at this time, it is unknown as to when it will happen.
Liddell has a method to dealing with hecklers and it may be something that Penn should adopt.
“I usually have fun with them,” Liddell said. “I don’t get that problem very much and I usually just joke around with them. I have a good time with it, usually. It just really isn’t worth it at this point.”
Penn has proclaimed his innocence in the bar room fight, with a representative saying the unknown knockout artist was the one who instigated things.
