UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell called an end to his fighting career back in 2010. After hanging up his gloves, Liddell was granted the position of\u00a0executive vice president of business development within the UFC. After seven years of working the position, Liddell was let go from the UFC. The sale of the UFC to WME-IMG was followed by a series of firings within the UFC employment pool. However, Chuck Liddell claims that his position was promised to be for life. In an interview with\u00a0The MMA Hour, as provided by MMA Fighting, Liddell explained he was told the position would be for life but that would not be the case. \u201cThat\u2019s what was told to me, too. But it happens. Life changes. I think at first I took it a little hard, but now I look at it as a blessing in disguise. It\u2019s got me re-motivated to go out and find what I really want to do.\u201d Speaking on if being let go has affected his relationship with UFC President Dana White, Liddell explained: \u201cIt is what it is. It\u2019s a business decision, you know? They made a business decision and that\u2019s what it is. I was led to believe that\u2019s not what it was going to be, but it happened and it is what it is.\u201d Speaking to the Ferttita brothers and Dana White's sale of the UFC, Chuck Liddell had only positive things to say. \u201cCongratulations to the guys, man. They did a great job of building the sport and the company and they were able to sell it for a lot of money. That\u2019s a lot of money. It\u2019s a crazy amount.\u201d That being said, "The Iceman" was not told up front that the promotion was being sold. \u201cI wasn\u2019t aware they were even selling. I mean, I heard the rumors and then talked to Dana, he said they weren\u2019t, then they ended up selling a couple of weeks later. So, I wasn\u2019t really privy to that, to what was going on, but that\u2019s a high number, man. I\u2019m happy for them, and they took a risk for a long time. Frank and Lorenzo took a risk for quite awhile trying to make it work, and it worked for them.\u201d Thank you for reading. Have a fantastic day!
