UFC Legend Chuck Liddell has retired from fighting. In the same announcement, they also said Liddell would be named to the executive staff as UFC Executive Vice President of Business Development.

While today’s UFC fans may look at Brock Lesnar and others like him as the casual fan draws to a constantly-growing sport, anyone who was around in Liddell’s heyday can testify to what a tremendous personality he was in mixed martial arts.

The decision to call it quits obviously didn’t come easy for the 41-year-old Liddell. For months rumors raged on regarding whether or not he would give it another go with an easy fight, or finally hang up his gloves for good.
