"On paper I think Jon should come out and win this fight," said Liddell on MMA Interviews. "But I would not count Vitor out. He's a tough competitor. He hits hard and he's coming to fight, so I wouldn't count him out just yet."
Liddell fought Belfort once, back in 2002, where he defeated him at UFC 37.5.
Jones vs. Belfort for the light heavyweight championship takes place today, September 22, at UFC 152.
