On the Howard Stern Show today, New York Bad Ass Chuck Zito spoke spoke about the possibility of fighting in a cage. Chuck stated that he would like to try himself in the cage and has recently cut over 30 pounds to get into fighting shape. Currently weighing approximately 207lb, Chuck is preparing himself for hopefully his first cage fight. Chuck stated that he has experience in 7 various martial arts forms, including Jujitsu. He additionally is very notable, much like Kimbo Slice, for his street toughness. Chuck is a former Hell Angels, Bodyguard, Golden Gloves fighter and more recently a Radio Personality and Actor.
Chuck is currently 54 years old, soon to be 55 in March. If Chuck were to enter the cage, he would be one of the oldest MMA fighters to enter the ring. Chuck mentioned the fact that Ron Van Clief was one of the oldest fighters to enter the cage at 51 years old, for UFC 4. Ron Van Clief lost quickly to Royce Gracie, 3 minutes and 59 seconds into the first round via a rear naked choke.
As for what league Chuck might fight in? Chuck stated that it doesn’t have to be the UFC, he knows of 10 other organizations that he could possibly fight for. But will it ever happen? I sure hope so, he dropped a figure for 5 million to fight… not sure if he is serious / dead set on this number, if so… we’ll most likely never see the fight.
