MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Video: Chuck Liddell Is Enjoying His Forced Retirement

From TMZ:

The only thing uglier than Chuck Liddell‘s first round TKO by Mauricio "Shogun" Rua was his Steel Panther performance at the Key Club last night with Boston Red Sox’s Brad Penny and Washington Redskin Chris Cooley. Just don’t tell Chuck we said that…
That being said — the ladies seemed to enjoy it.

Such is the power of Chuck. He can give a horribly tone-deaf performance of "Don’t Stop Believin’" and still manage to draw a line of hot girls waiting to blow him backstage, as if he were the lead singer of Steel Panther. You can take away his livelihood, but don’t you dare take away his right to sing karaoke and bang groupies.

Semi-related buzzkill: MMA Junkie’s medical columnist Dr. Johnny Benjamin thinks that if Liddell continues fighting, he could end up like this. (Skip to the 1:29 mark for the sadness.)

UFC legend Chuck Liddell met with the press at UFC 135 to discuss the current issues with MMA judging, whether he still has an itch to fight again, the new UFC on FOX TV deal and his upcoming cameo on CBS' Hawaii Five-0 series.

Yeah, thats sad about Taylor. Thank god in MMA once your down and out, they dont let you have a 10 count to pretend you don't have a concussion. It's real bad for you to keep getting hit in the head after being knocked out. Doesn't help when you take 300+ punches either...

suprised no one has commented on Chuck singing "Don't Stop Believin." Next, Dana will sing "Give it Up," prompting Hack to sing "I fought the law..."

For the record, I approve highly of any and all Steel Panther references. That is all.

Bro. Chuck is starting to slowly have that Muhammad Ali style of speech. Nobody wants to see him all slurring n shit.

I remember seeing that about Taylor a long time ago. Luckily for the sport of mixed martial arts, we don't have any stories like this yet, and I hope we never have to see it. I'm with you OB&I, who is letting this guy fight???? I also don't think Chuck is at that point yet. I am one of those guys that think that if Chuck wants to have another fight to prove that he still has it, I believe he deserves it. At least one more. His last few losses have been at the hands of top notch opponents that are at the top of the heap in the LHW division, and anyone in the division could have lost to those same opponents. I don't know........do you disagree????

That's a band called Metal Skool, their gimmick is getting celebs on stage to sing that song w/them. They even had Tony Romo sing that shit w/them once.

Why this wasn't another sign of the apocalypse? IDK

Ugh... I do not want to see Chuck Liddell turn into that...

People actually go to see Journey cover bands?! Chuck's not the only one that should be embarrassed.

OH MY GOD!

That video of Taylor is gut-wrenching.

I love sports; especially contact and combat sports. But the worst part about these types of sports are the injuries. I never want to see an athlete who is giving his all get hurt.

I love watching football, but I cringe when someone gets hurt. Players have been paralyzed and broke bones. That's not what I'm tuning in for, but it is part of the sport.

For someone like Taylor to slur out that he should keep fighting is just freakin' wrong. The man is brain damaged. What boxing commision is letting him fight?

That's just wrong...
