Historic MMA Fights: Chuck Liddell vs. Jose “Pele” Landi-Jons

PRO MMA brings to you another segment of Historic MMA Fights. This edition features Chuck Liddell in his only recorded bare knuckle match. His opponent is Jose “Pele” Landi-Jons and the fight took place at the International Vale Tudo Championship 6 – The Challenge in San Paulo, Brazil on August 23 of 1998. This fight just had it’s tenth-year anniversary about a month ago; ten long hard years Chuck Liddell has been battling it out. This fight had one round only, but that round lasted for thirty minutes.

Believe it or not, there are times in the fight when you would think Liddell was strictly a lay and pray or possibly a ground and pound fighter. Liddell has numerous take downs in the fight and uses quite a bit of wrestling, which is something he has completely gotten away from. Sit back, grab a drink or a snack and enjoy watching one of the Historic MMA Fights back when rules were seen as a hindrance.
