Chuck Liddell to dance his way into our hearts

Chuck Liddell has lost four of his last five fights. Three of them coming by way of KO or TKO. He’s basically been forced into early retirement by “best friend” Dana White. At the very least, he’s been put on ice (hehe, I made a funny because his nickname is The Iceman, you see).

So what does an ex-light heavyweight champ do during his off-time? Why, participate in the new season of Dancing With The Stars of course. Beginning September 21st, you’ll be able to see the man formerly known as UFC’s most feared striker pirouetting around  on your television screen.

“I want to win,” Liddell told “I don’t like losing in anything, so I’ll work as hard as they’ll let me.”

“I’m gonna go out, be myself, and show what kind of people we do have in this sport,” he said. “I’m sure the reaction will be mixed (among fight fans). My friends are gonna be excited and I’ll never hear the end of it because they’ll make fun of me, but it should be fun and I think everyone will like it.”

“They asked a couple different times, but it would be too much time to take off from training for fights,” said Liddell. “Now I don’t have any fights coming up and I’m not training, so it’s something to do.”

“When I talked to them after I agreed to do it, they said if you don’t have any background in dancing, just learn it when you get here. Don’t confuse yourself by starting with somebody and then having to come over and re-learn it.”

Chuck will join Aaron Carter, Donny Osmond, Joanna Krupa, Kathy Ireland, Kelly Osbourne, Melissa Joan Hart, Michael Irvin and others to see who the best dancer really is.

Please, please, please, I’m begging you. Can we put Liddell in a tutu and make him jump in the air and do those flutter kicks. I want to see what he enjoys less. Being knocked out or that. My money is on the flutter kicks because with a concussion you won’t have to remember the embarrassment.
