Chuck Liddell UFC fighter

The infamous Chuck Liddell
The infamous Chuck Liddell

Profile

Chuck Liddell is perhaps the most recognisable face in the history of mixed martial arts,possibly due to his haircut or due to the fact that he went on a tear through the light heavyweight division of the UFC knocking out some of the best fighters in the world and staking his claim as a future hall of famer.

Chuck made his UFC debut in 1998 against Noe Hernandez and went on to record victories over such legends as Tito Ortiz, Randy Couture,Wanderlie Silva,Renato Sobral and many more.He claimed the light heavyweight belt in 2004 after defeating Randy Couture and then held the title for 3 years with everyone thinking he was unbeatable,He made 5 successful defences of the title but then lost it in a quick bout against Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in 2007,He has recently been on a 3-1 losing streak but that wont deter the "Iceman" as he is still a crowd favourite and with the power he carries in both hands and feet he could still make it back to the top.
