Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

And So It Ends: Chuck Liddell Booted Off ‘Dancing With the Stars’

(Photo courtesy of ABC News.)

You could see it on Anna Trebunskaya‘s face Monday night during judgingChuck Liddell‘s plodding two-step was the last gasp of his Celebrity Dancing career. The show’s viewers made it official yesterday, voting the former UFC light-heavyweight champion off of Dancing With the Stars. Look, we all know how unfair that is — Louie Vito should have been the next to go, obviously — but in the end, Liddell finished the season in 11th place out of 16 competitors, beating out Ashley Hamilton, Macy Gray, Kathy Ireland, Tom DeLay (stoppage due to injury), and Debi Mazar. That’s pretty damn impressive for a guy who came into the show as a complete amateur. As Trebunskaya told Chris Cuomo on GMA today:

"He wasn’t a very good dancer to start with. He had to work a lot on his dancing footwork and dancing ability. Totally different from fighting.

Despite Anna’s obvious bitterness, we’d like to salute Chuck for trying something highly challenging and potentially embarassing in order to promote his sport in front of an unfamiliar audience. And just because the Iceman has been voted off, that doesn’t mean we’ll stop covering DWtS. Come back next Tuesday morning to find out how Aaron Carter handled the Paso Doble!

for the love of mma, if you think dancing is hard and can be embarrassing, then you weren't drunk enough. Unless, of course, you meant that dancing well is hard, and that it can be embarrassing for your girlfriend. In that case, you'd be 100% correct.

Just saw a Tweet from Chuck, says he's going to start his own show - Fighting With The Stars (FWTS). Should be awesome! I hope he gets Aaron Carter and Spencer Pratt on it.

the SIEG HEIL accompanied by his completely baffled face probably did not help the duo

In Chuck's final performance he gives a shot out to "Hitler Dog".

With Chuck Liddell gone, I will, for the good of the sport, ignore DWTS now and participate in a ratings drop for the show!

In addition, I'd also like to apologize to the sport for not watching the show to begin with...

Sorry Nate...I couldn't help myself :)
GetUpAndKill- October 14, 2009 at 8:25 am has snowed over 6 inches and counting in the last day in Calgary Alberta. Temperatures have fluctuated between +21 degrees celcius and -14 degrees celcius (sorry yankees, I dunno what that is in fahrenheit) causing record highs and lows in recorded history.

The HAARP program (look it up conspiracy newbs) continues to wreak havoc on weather systems around the world, accused of such attrocities as weather warfare...earthquakes, monsoons, mudslides and potentially global warming.

So Cage Potato...why aren't you covering this?????

Imagine if Anderson Silva was on Dancing With The Stars. He would just to Micheal Jackson impressions. It could be sick.

Liddell V. Quinn UFC 110.....Let's stand and bang, noSHIT
Brock Lesnesman- October 14, 2009 at 8:06 am
In the off chance CP does plan to continue covering DWTS, can someone please have Shawn Tompkins standing by with a basket full of Klonopin? I'd rather read a banged up story about a doped up Junie dry humping a car tire than watch some stupid .gif of Carter's methed out puss flailing around on a stage.

I'll supply the Klonopin, please give me Shawns address or I'll just send it to the Tapout Gym c/o the Q-tip suffering the midlife crisis.

Pff! Isnt there a Male nurse we should be hearing from about a potential grudge match? Why am I being force fed a story telling me one of the baddest men to walk the earth cant dance?
RearNakedPoke- October 14, 2009 at 7:46 am
