Fans of Chuck Liddell have had it rough the past few years. For a long time the Iceman got by on dropping his opponents with a couple of bombs padded with leather.
Inevitably the time arrived when fighters and coaches caught on to his methods of destruction and the blueprint was set.
It was never a secret what Liddell’s plan or intention was inside the Octagon and that worked for a time, but those days are gone. When you rely on one method of victory over and over again you are viewed as a one-dimensional fighter.
