Chuck Liddell Walkout Music

Chuck Liddell currently fights for the UFC. A former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, Liddell has an extensive background in Kickboxing and collegiate wrestling. Chuck Liddell is noted within MMA circles for his exceptional takedown defense. Because of his relaxed "hands-down" stance and the various angles from which he throws punches, many within the MMA community have labelled Liddell's style "unorthodox". He is associated with the Pit team and recently earned a Purple Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Chuck Liddell began his fighting career when he defeated Noe Hernandez on May 15, 1998. By 2002, Liddell was considered the number one contender for the UFC light heavyweight title with growing popularity and support from fans. The UFC created an Interim Light Heavyweight Championship and matched Liddell with experienced former heavyweight Randy Couture at UFC 43 for that title. This was a fight that many thought Chuck should win however, Couture neutralized Chuck's trademark powerful looping hooks with crisp straight punches and he eventually began taking Chuck down at will. Couture eventually gained full mount and forced a referee stoppage due to strikes. This strategy should still be effective today against Liddell

After this defeat, Chuck Liddell went to Japan to compete in the PRIDE 2003 Middleweight Grand Prix tournament as the UFC's representative. After defeating Alistair Overeem in the first round of the tournament, Liddell was eliminated from the Grand Prix by Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in the semi-finals in a one sided affair, losing by technical knockout after Liddell's corner signaled for an end to the bout.

Chuck Liddell lost his UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 71 on May 26, 2007 in a rematch against Quinton "Rampage" Jackson due to KO after being dropped by a single right hand.

Chuck Liddell dominated Wanderlei Silva in a long awaited match between two MMA legends. Liddell controlled the fight from the opening bell, outstriking Silva who seemed to be outclassed on his feet.

Chuck Liddell recently "competed" on Dancing with the Stars and will Coach against Tito Ortiz in the upcoming The Ultimate Fighter 11.
