recently got Chuck's autobiography.

absolutely loved it, and i encourage MMA fans to check it out.

i'll share some bits and pieces, but won't do a full summary like that guy did for hughes's book.

wasn't a big chuck fan before, now i'll be rooting for him.

-how he got his mohawk : he went to a Slayer concert with his buddies and his friends decided to shave their heads off. Chuck was reluctant, so he got a mohawk.

-he got his tats on his head because he wanted to show it to other ppl without having to take his shirt off. He also wanted it to be in a place where he could easily hide it, since he was in accounting and he may have needed job interviews later on.

-at 25 yrs old, he began dating a 17 yrs old and even went to her prom. (chuck admits that its weird and refers to it as robbing the craddle)

-the only 2 fighters he seems to dislike and disrepect are Tito and Vernon White. Tito because he felt that Tito ducked him, and White because he keeps complaining about eye gouging.

-during his first fight with Rampage in Pride, you can hear Dana wondering why he isn't using leg kicks and sticking to his gameplan. Chuck explains that the plan was to leg kick because they expected takedowns from rampage. Since chuck saw rampage was going to trade punches with him, chuck abandonned the original plan.

-his mom was a single parent who managed to raise 4 kids on her own. chuck refers to his father as the sperm donor.

-his karate style is Koei-Kan (personally never heard about it before)

-He spells BJJ as jujitsu. (some people on this board makes a fuss about jiu-jitsu vs jujitsu). i often hear that he has a purple belt, but his rank is not specified in his book.

-early during his career, he fought and beat Pele in Brazil.

-Dana White used to be Chuck's manager until Dana and the Fertittas bought the UFC.



and yeah, i highly recommand his book.

So Cracky and Chuck have something in common? Who'd have thought?

For some reason, I never bought into the "iceman" hype.

I also had the notion that 85% of those who did were bitches.

I have, for some reason bought into the GSP hype though.

I never liked Chuck Lidell, I don't know why, I read his book, and he seems ok.

he had a rough life.

Same here. He did have a rough childhood (financially ) and he seems very proud and thankful in regards to his mom / grand parents.

At 25 he dated a 17 year old? How does that even happen? Seriously, what is the chain of events that would cause him at 25 to be at a 17 year old's prom?lol

Sounds like good read though. I'll be checking it out.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

And he got her pregnant when she turned 18. I **** you not. Chuck ends up talking about his sex life quite a bit in his book. And it's not pleasant most of the time; frankly, I don't want to think about Liddell's fat gut slopping over his dick when he takes his pants off.

They had a mutual friend and would carpool together to get to the California midstate fair in the Summer (Where Chuck worked security). He became attracted to her, and poured her heart out to her one night. Then they started dating. Along the line, he took her to the prom and boned her at one point.

chuck's #1 saving grace is that no matter how many times he gets photographed surrounded by random women, he always has that "holy ****, this is awesome!" smile.

I'm sorry, but I just can't picture Chuck Liddell "pouring his heart out" to anyone.

Unless by "pouring his heart" he really means "smackin' a bitch up."

Sounds like every other white trash tryst I've ever heard of.

The story about him and the girl was in Chapter 13, aka " You're Never Too Tough To Show The Ladies Your Sensitive Side".

By the way, here's my favorite passage from the book:


When I fought Tito, I wasn't dating anyone seriously. So after a night of celebrating at the clubs, I brought some company back up to my room. A lot of company. I can't remember how many women, but I know it was more than two. I had promised Dana the gloves and trunks from the fight, and he had forgotten to get them in the celebration after. He came by my room in the morning, knocked on the door, and someone let him in. He saw two girls asleep in the living room, two more girls in the bathroom, and a girl in bed with me. None of us had any clothes on. And Dana remembers seeing condoms hanging from the lamps, on the floor, pretty much everywhere. He looked at me, asked for the gloves and the trunks, then said, "Get me the hell out of here." I ended the morning by having sex while doing an interview on the phone with a radio station. Again, I'm not trying to brag. That is just the way it was.

What else can I say? It's good to be a winner.
