Fighting Words: UFC Legend Chuck Liddell takes in Cowboys practice, offers words of wisdom


Todd Archer – The Dallas Morning News


Normally it takes a lot to get professional athletes excited to see another professional athlete. Two years ago in Oxnard, Calif ., some Cowboys were positively giddy when Magic Johnson came to practice.


On Monday, former UFC champion Chuck Liddell had players asking for autographs and pictures following practice.


Liddell, who was visiting practice with Fox football analyst Jay Glazer, was asked by coach Wade Phillips to address the team before practice.


“Basically he told us to just dominate the guy on the other side of the ball,” fullback Deon Anderson said. “Football and fighting are two violent sports and you just have to dominate the other guy.”


Anderson might have been the most giddy of the players Monday.


“Big fan,” said Anderson, who had his hat autographed by Liddell. “Oh, my goodness this is crazy.”
