When MMA was rising in popularity in the mid-2000s, the martial artist at the center of it all was a KO artist with dynamite in his hands known as “The Iceman.” Chuck Liddell seemed to come right out of a comic book, mohawked and with a ‘Koei-Kan’ tattoo running down the left side of his head. With ice in his veins and a humbleness attached to his martial arts demeanor, Chuck would walk down that dark tunnel stepping into the brightly lit Octagon. Once that cage door closed “The Iceman” seemed to turn into a comic book super hero ready to SMASH his foe.
Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell burst onto the MMA scene in 1998 winning his UFC debut against Noe Hernandez in UFC 17. His rise to UFC champion includes notable TKO wins against Hall of Famers Randy Couture, Tito Ortiz, Wanderlei Silva and Kevin Randleman. He is currently on the top 10 list for the most wins in the UFC with 16. “The Iceman” also accumulated an astonishing 3.5 hours inside the Octagon and reigned as UFC World Light Heavyweight Champion for two years, defending his title five times. He still holds the UFC record for the most KO wins in the Light Heavyweight Division.
Come watch as we elevate the sport of MMA in a night of extravagance and giving back to the underserved. Black tie suggested, formal attire required.
