Cagewriter - Mixed Martial Arts


UFC turns on the pub machine this and next week. With Lorenzo Fertitta on board in a full-time capacity, there's definitely been an increase in the amount of radio and television being done.

Former UFC light heavyweight champ Chuck Liddell spoke on several radio shows on Wednesday. One of the best sports shows in the country is done by Dan LeBetard at the 790 The Ticket in Miami. There wasn't a whole lot of hardcore mixed martial arts talk but the guys did find out that Liddell was slightly distracted during the conversation. 'The Iceman' was getting his toenails done at the time.

LeBetard's sidekick Stugotz then asked if Liddelll was drinking during the interview (3:40 mark).


LeBetard and Liddell also spoke at length about Chuck's famous episode on a Dallas television morning show. Liddell was groggy during a March 2007 appearance after taking a combination of sleeping pills and cold medicine.

The show did a good job of trying to get Liddell to comment on Kimbo Slice, Brock Lesnar, Quinton Jackson and Ken Shamrock. Liddell wouldn't bite and had nothing but nice things to say about those guys.

Liddell is always a wacky guy to interview. If you hit the right buttons, he's one of the best interviews in the UFC. If you ask lame, obvious questions then he loses interest quickly.
