    ""I love dancing," he says, his hips ticking back and forth with fluidity. "I'll dance anywhere, anytime. People think I'm wasted, but I'm not. I'm just enjoying myself."

    "He has on flip-flops, which reveal his toenails. They are painted an implausible neon pink."

    "Chuck looks like an ax murderer," says UFC president Dana White. "But he's the nicest guy in the world."

    "At the moment, Liddell is eating lunch at the Pink Taco, in the Hard Rock"

    "Has he ever been in therapy?"For what?"
    He is quiet for a moment.
    "I went to anger management once," he says. "At Cal Poly I kicked a stuck door, and it flew off the hinges. The counselor said, 'Come back when you have real problems.'""

    I think its very possible that he is.

    I mean, I hope Rampage beats him, but there is a decent chance that he won't.

    I think Chuck would take Shogun and Wandy.

    :dunno:

    I would call him #1 LHW right now.

    That is a really good article. Good change from the crap we've been seeing lately about MMA.

    the thing is, it wasn't too much about MMA itself, and more about Chuck and his life. i think it's a good way to promote the sport by showing the human side of fighters

    the sport needs it, seeing how the general public still sees it as a barbaric sport whose athletes are just street brawlers and thugs
