If any MMA fighter’s life could be compared to that of a rock star, it would be Chuck Liddell’s. If you’ve ever been around Liddell when he’s on The Strip, you know exactly who the the new King of Vegas is. However, just because you can spot Liddell on the party scene, it doesn’t mean he’s getting tipsy.
“I’m doing a lot of training,” Liddell said. “I still go out sometimes and hang out, but I haven’t been drinking. I’m watching what I eat more and training more consistent. I’m going to be training from now until whenever I fight.
Not too long ago, Liddell was the face of the organization, thus the entire sport of mixed martial arts. His Mohawk was plastered all over the planet, even making cameos in the mega-popular HBO series, Entourage, as well as gracing the cover of ESPN the Magazine.
Because “The Iceman” remains an imposing figure in the sport, White opened his Octagon door one “final” time so Liddell can complete his trilogy with Tito Ortiz, AFTER they served as coaches on the latest season of TUF 11.
Liddell already owns two knockout victories over Mr. Jameson, so a third win would guarantee at least one more scrap for Liddell, right?
“It doesn’t matter. I’ve just got to show him I can perform. If I perform, he’ll keep letting me fight,” Liddell said in closing.
Liddell and Ortiz will square off once the TUF 11 season has concluded.
