UFC Announces Chuck Liddell's Employment as VP of Business Development


"I'm looking forward moving on to this stage of my career, now that I'm retired."  - Chuck Liddell

At the pre-fight press conference for UFC 125, Dana White announced that Chuck Liddell would be joining the company, no longer as a fighter, but as a businessman.  It had been rumored that the announcement would be anything from the next coaches of the ultimate fighter, to the UFC making Ion Television the "UFC Channel", not many were expecting a Chuck Liddell announcement, let alone that he'd be getting a new job as VP of Business Development.

Dana White had previously mentioned possibly getting Chuck a job if it meant keeping him from getting hurt in the cage anymore, and it appears that an agreement was reached, with all parties pleased.  It's been a great career Chuck, thank you for the hard work you gave the sport in the cage, and the work you'll now do outside of it.
