Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

This Is Why Chuck Liddell Has Been Forcibly Retired, While Randy Couture Is Still Headlining UFC Events

Maybe that headline isn’t totally fair.  In truth, this type of hard-partying with Hollywood celebs is only part of the reason why Chuck Liddell’s career hit a fist-shaped wall in his late thirties, while Couture continues to thrive well into his mid-forties.  Some of it is due to differences in fighting style.  Some might even be due to genetics, or Couture’s obsession with finding the fountain of youth through blood-testing and supplements

But, you have to admit, at least some of it has to do with how these guys have chosen to spend their free time over the years.  While Chuck is getting fall-down drunk and picking fights frat boy-style outside of parties, Couture is getting his active rest in.  While Chuck is at bars, feeling too sexy for his shirt, Couture enjoys quiet evenings at home with his next future ex-wife.  Different philosophies at work, really.  We’re not here to say that one is better or worse than another, just that one is demonstrably better for career longevity if you fight other people for a living.

It should always be legal to punch a guy whos standing out in your driveway with a tv camera.

Fuck those pap vulture fuckers. They crowd you and get all in your face and then start crying "Oh you gonna' touch me? Gonna' break my camera?".

They deserve every fucking black eye they get.

Fuck Chuck. Wanderlei all day!

I've never been a fan of this redneck.

Obviously the paparazzi try to get celebs riled up so they can catch them doing something stupid on camera(or get punched and sue the celeb) but messing with a drunk Chuck seems like a poor decision in life. You could end up in the basement of the hospital.

The only good to things to come from the Papz are kooter shots and conspiracy footage. I wonder if the Bens have ever dabled in the nasty side of this biz?

I don't think it shoudl be illegal to assualt papparazzi. They aren't real media, so much as they are professional stalkers. They harass and assail you with cameras, yell questions that are just borderline offensive enough to get at you on a bad day, just for the sake of getting you on camera berating people who are clearing harassing you. They engage in car chases on LA freeways just to get pictures, with no regard for the peopel the are chasing or any other drivers.

I'm glad Tyson freaked out on one, put me on that jury and he will be out by morning. I look forward to the day that Slutty Cyrus or Cokehead Lohan freaks out, drives into a crowd of papz, hops out of her crushed SUV, and mows down anyone standing with an AR15.

And why isnt CP even starting to talk about UFC 105 besides the Swick crap? Beats me..

I dunno, I think the stress from women will kill you faster than partying.

Stay up playa, stay up!

After this incident, chuck reportedly said, "I just got caught, what can I say."
Sneaky Pete- November 12, 2009 at 10:51 am
He's just showing that he can be knocked out by nearly anything these days. I think his chin brushed that girls purse and 'john McCarthy had to step in. Good stoppage John.

Damn... Homeboy knows how to get fucking down and party. who the fuck was that giant that reeled Chuck in.
virpz- November 12, 2009 at 10:42 am
Looks like Chuck had a weekend in russia.
Merlin- November 12, 2009 at 10:32 am
You're a STUD Chuck.
Party On!
Kimbos Bread- November 12, 2009 at 10:31 am
The sad part is, Chuck was probably sober throughout that clip.

Hesus Christo, the guy takes some Nyquill to combat H1N1 and suddenly the Potato makes him out to be a party animal who doesn't know when to stop. So cynical.
