Consider “The Iceman” retired, but still dangerous.
An enormous “thank you!!” must go out to the brave member of the United States military on the receiving end of UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell’s foot to his gut and to FOX Sports’ Megan Olivi distributing her historic recording via social media.
On this day, former UFC light-heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell, 43(!?!), dished out a seemingly asked for spinning heel kick to the tummy to a lucky soldier at Fort Campbell in Kentucky while doing some good natured photo ops in the lead up to Fight for the Troops: Kennedy vs. Natal on Wednesday live on FOX Sports 1.
Clad in jeans and tennis shoes instead of his trademark blue board shorts and UFC gloves, Liddell still looks light on his feet with plenty of striking power as the Vice President of Business Development within the UFC instead of as a prizefighter within the UFC’s Octagon. Is this what a typical day for the “VP of Biz Development” looks like? Regardless, someone or Olivi herself needs to film all of Liddell’s office hours for more action like this.
As for Liddell’s technique? We’ll leave that up to the experts and, if Youtube has proven anything, of all people that’s UFC commentator Joe Rogan. The professional comedian grew up competing in taekwondo and is actually incredible at the turning side kicks, which has been seen in Rogan demonstrating it for UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre and former UFC fighter and K-1 kickboxer Duane “Bang” Ludwig.
