10:19 AM ET 05.10 | UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell has retired from the sport after suffering back-to-back-to-back knockout losses, but he will always be remembered as one of the most exciting fighters in mixed martial arts history and as a fighter that was always coming out to put on a show. If Liddell didn't score the knockout, he was likely to be on the wrong end of a fight ending punch. That style led to the end of his career, but it also helped build his legacy. Liddell was able to earn 13 knockout finishes during his time in the sport, but now as a senior VP at Zuffa LLC, Liddell seems to see fighters not fighting with the same killer instinct that helped make the fight popular. Instead, Liddell seems fighters playing it safe and just hoping to get another fight. For the current crop of fighters who are looking to make a major impact and make their mark on the sport, Liddell has some great advice on how to get noticed and make a splash on the scene.
