Chuck Liddell Biography
Chuck's book "Iceman: My Fighting Life" debuted on February 17, 2008 and spent multiple weeks on the New York Times Bestseller list.
"I was raised by a single mother and inspired by my grandfather, a first-generation Irish American from Mafia-run Brooklyn. I learned how to fight at a very young age. Now I am 6'2", 220 pounds, and a trained lethal weapon, but I'm also fiercely loyal, maybe even a bit sensitive, and unexpectedly romantic. In raw detail and with total honesty, I'm going to tell you the story of my fighting life – both inside and outside the Octagon – including my childhood in the poor section of Santa Barbara, gritty insider accounts of my major fights, stories behind my trademark Mohawk and nickname, my ongoing rivalry with Tito Ortiz and deep–rooted friendship with Dana White, and how I balance life as a father, a UFC champ, and a superstar – or try to, anyway. With never-before-seen photos, "Iceman" is my true no-holds-barred story of fighting my way to become a champion."
"When I walk out of the tunnel, I can see the lights, hear the music, feel the crowd, but it all begins to close off as I near the cage. By that point I'm thinking, I've been training hard, it's time to focus… every man is born with a fight-or-flight instinct, and mine is to fight. It always has been" - From the ProloguePruchase from Amazon.com
