Chuck Liddell is now a living legend of the sport of mixed martial arts. A former UFC light heavyweight champion, “The Iceman” earned a reputation inside the octagon as being a gifted knockout artist. The fighter quickly became one of the largest stars within the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) during his tenure with the world’s largest mixed martial arts promotion.
With a professional record in mixed martial arts of 21-8, Liddell has garnered a storied career in the sport. The former champion has taken on the likes of Randy Couture, Tito Ortiz, Rich Franklin, Rashad Evans, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Alistair Overeem during his illustrious career.
Hanging up his gloves back in 2010 after suffering a first round knockout loss to Rich Franklin, Liddell now finds other ways to spend his time outside of the octagon.
