Chuck Liddell Meets His Wax Equivalent as Madame Tussauds Unveils “The Iceman” Figure Today in Vegas

UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell got his first peek of himself ever-immortalized a champion in wax, as Madam Tussauds unveiled his statue at an induction ceremony today in Las Vegas.

The figure, which is purportedly valued at over $300,000 US was first unveiled at the UFC Fan Expo in May, but "The Iceman," who was unable to attend didn’t get a chance to see the sculpture until the ceremony today at The Venetian Resort, Hotel and Casino.


Liddell joins a host of other personalities whose likenesses are housed at the Vegas location of the famous London-based wax museum, including Wayne Brady, Kathy Griffin, Criss Angel, The Blue Man Group, Snoop Dogg, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears Tiger Woods, President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush.

Although they wouldn’t disclose which title-win or defense the figure was inspired by, we have a pretty good hunch, it was loosely based on the post-UFC 57 Chuck and his stone-faced stare after he defended his belt against Randy Couture in their third meeting.

"The Chuck on the left is the wax figure, modeled after the exact moment someone told him they can bake cheese right into the pizza crust now."

I read this and didn't laugh, then I scrolled up and looked at the picture and bust out one of those awkward everyone in the office heard you lol's. When you picture someone telling Chuck that and then look at his expression in the picture... pretty f'n funny.

mad props to kaboom, funniest comment... i was gonna say some comment about how chuck is smiling because he thought he was at a las vegas fortune teller, and was being showed his future but whats the point the 97 percent wax three percent glass is unbeatable.

I hope there is a sign in front of the figure that reads "Please do not touch the chin."

My question is this....which one is the DUMMY?

He met his wax replica and was knocked out in the first round.

The Chuck on the left is the wax figure, modeled after the exact moment someone told him they can bake cheese right into the pizza crust now. This particular shot shows a fight-ready Chuck running in and deconstructing the rumor he's retired again by asking the crowd "Would I still have my costume if I retired? Hmm?"

Poor Wandy has been misinformed, all he needed was an 8ball and a bottle of pink nail polish for that.

 Wand has one too. He bought it so he could fuck Chuck...hxxp://www.break.com/usercontent/2007/3/30/wanderlei-silva-fuck-chuck-261442

maybe it's just the wrong angle but it seems like we should be able to see at least a little bit of the chinese writing on the side of his head

Ew.

You win this one Mike. Give yourself a magazine subscription. Tito has 8 of these dolls by the way.
Mike Russell- July 1, 2010 at 12:05 pm
I believe the bottom one is the Chuck Liddell "Real Doll".

@ReX

You're right. Weird.

The wax Chuck is smiling like a retart that pooped his pants.
El Famous Burrito- July 1, 2010 at 11:54 am
This wax Chuck clearly doesn't know how to party.
ReX13- July 1, 2010 at 11:52 am
Am i the only one who thinks the bottom pic of Chuck looks more like wax than the actual wax statue??
cecils_pupils- July 1, 2010 at 11:44 am
KABOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM07!! well done.

@El Famous Burrito,
It has a t-shirt because it is amazingly hard to recreate the Chuck belly in wax, you would be surprised.
DangadaDang- July 1, 2010 at 11:42 am
@ burrito

agreed. Should be doin his signature move, which inspired the Creed song "With Arms Wide Open"


in other news, I was watchin this Golden Gloves match, and the two guys got caught up and one of them clinched and threw a knee. The announcers were baffled.

What's up with the goofy smile? Chuck never smiles like that... unless he's been huffin nitrous with Lindsay Lohan
El Famous Burrito- July 1, 2010 at 11:38 am
Why the Hell wouldn't they have the figure doing the classic Iceman victory pose?

And why does it have a shirt?
kaboom07- July 1, 2010 at 11:30 am
It's only 97% wax.
the jaw is glass.

It makes sense. That's around the time his career was still waxing.

*thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week!
Lonny- July 1, 2010 at 11:26 am
