Chuck Liddell is considered to be a true pioneer of the sport of MMA and one of the greatest light heavyweight champions of all time. The 51-year-old is known for his battles with the likes of Tito Ortiz, Randy Couture, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, among other fellow legends. Liddell is a 2009 inductee of the Pioneer Wing of the UFC Hall of Fame.
