The Lost Chuck Liddell Interviews, Part 3 - Chuck's new office job

New, 10 comments

Just what exactly did Chuck Liddell do for Zuffa when he retired and took a desk job with them? Find out in this lost interview from 2011, as well as his thoughts on Overeem and who Chuck wanted to fight before retirement!

Back in March, 2011, I went to the UFC 128 weigh-ins in Newark, New Jersey. Before those got started, a special UFC Fight Club event was happening (for Fight Club members only), which was a question and answer session with Chuck Liddell. "The Iceman" had just recently retired only a few months earlier, and this was probably the first time he did an event like this since then.

In the third part, Chuck answers more fan questions, including what would he have done differently in his fight career, what his duties are behind the scenes for the UFC, what his charity activities are, thoughts on Alistair Overeem winning the Strikeforce heavyweight tournament, who hit Chuck the hardest, the possibility of Chuck's gym turning into a nationwide franchise, and if there was anyone else that Chuck wanted to fight before he retired, and more. One fan asks Chuck if he had heard of a semi-known fighter named Alexander Gustafsson, and what it would take for him to be a main card fighter. Who knew?

Plus, more from the obnoxious Brazilian reporter that kept talking and filming her own segment while this event was happening. I am not sure if she was actually translating live as this was happening, or if she was just talking over it. At one point, she did stand up near my camera and started to film her segment intro while Chuck was on stage, and later she got in line to ask a question, so who knows what she was really doing other than annoying the crap out of me.
