Chuck Liddell spin kicks US soldier

Consider “The Iceman” retired, but still


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


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”
