    Chuck Liddell to appear on Dancing with the Stars.

    http://www.examiner.com/x-8685-Chica...with-the-Stars
    Chuck Liddell, who is often credited (with fellow UFC fighter, Randy Couture) for bringing mixed martial arts into the mainstream, will be making a mainstream appearance of a different kind, on the upcoming ninth season of Dancing with the Stars.

    Liddell has an extensive background in Kempo and Koei-Kan Karate and is considered mostly a ‘stand up’ fighter (as opposed to a ‘ground’ fighter). It will no doubt be very interesting to see if a karate and kickboxing background translate into dance.

    Dancers usually take to martial arts well, having already acquired the hip strength, balance and flexibility that many of the moves require, although they usually have to work to gain power, if the opposite is also true, Liddell could impress on Dancing with the Stars.

    The ABC show will premier on Sept. 21 and will also include celebrity entertainers; singers Mya and Macy Gray and Aaron Carter; actors Ashley Hamilton, Melissa Joan Hart and Debi Mazar; models Joanna Krupa and Kathy Ireland; reality stars Mark Dacascos and Kelly Osbourne; entertainer Donny Osmond; and former Republican Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

    Other athletes joining Liddell on the show will be snowboarder Louie Vito; Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin; and former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin.

    Liddell already has an impressive fight record with the most wins by a fighter 16, (tied with Matt Hughes) as well as the most KO/TKO wins, with 10, fans will surely be waiting to see if he is as impressive on the dance floor.
    We'll see how graceful the ole' Iceman is on the dance floor. I wonder if he'll let his hair grow in or if he'll keep the mohawk. I also wonder how many UFC fans are actually going to be tuning in to see.

    I hope Chuck's stint on the show helps to dispels the image among some of the general public that MMA fighters are barbaric goons. Furthermore, I hope that Chuck wins it!

    I don't know about grace, but he'll have an instant conditioning advantage.

    I'm saying it now: he's going to try to incorporate a sprawl into one/all of his dances.

    Conditioning, timing, footwork, balance, competitive spirit, combinations, he has it all. But he needs to keep his hands up and his posture straight. Otherwise, this should all be pretty similar for him - learn move, rep it, combine it with other moves, rep it with a partner, and try it in front of an audience.
