It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly two-and-a-half years since Chuck Liddell has been in the Octagon.
For many years, Liddell was one of the more proven commodities that the UFC could provide, and it used him the way that suited him best—by having him not only fight in the cage but abroad in rival promotions where he was ideally placed to spread the UFC gospel.
Now after so many months, I still expect to see the next Liddell bout being advertised anytime I see the beginning of a UFC pay-per-view commercial. When he is nowhere to be found, I feel a bit cheated.
We are nearing an anniversary of sorts. Two of Chuck Liddell’s biggest victories (against Tito Ortiz and Wanderlei Silva) happened near the end of the month of December, and so it seems a perfect time to remember his biggest moments in the UFC and maybe relive some fine fights in the process.
Here is our power ranking of Chuck "The Ice Man" Liddell’s top performances in the UFC.
