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.
