About Chuck Liddell
Chuck as famously said that he would continue fighting even if he had to do it for free. However, as any other mixed martial artist who also happens to be an Ultimate Fighting Champion, he did not. This dangerous but lucrative sport has boosted Chuck Liddell net worth to $14 million dollars, making him one of the richest ultimate fighters in the word. This, in turn, makes Chuck the subject of our attention. So how did it all start?
The future champion has been learning to fight ever since he was a little kid. And in this case I am not talking about the kind of fighting lessons that most of us had to go through in the playgrounds. No. Chuck, whose father’s place in his life remains unknown for us, was raised by his mother and the grandpa from her side. The old man has been teaching his grandchildren boxing techniques ever since a very young age. Later, when he was some 12 years old, Liddell started taking professional karate classes. But martial arts were not the only kind of sport that the future millionaire has trained at in his teenage years. Liddell was also four-year starter on the football team at San Marcos High School and went on to become a Division I wrestler at California Polytechnic State University. During this early stage of his life Chuck has also trained in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under John Lewis in Las Vegas and participated in amateur kickboxing matches. These fights did not significantly increase Chuck Liddell net worth and if anything, taking lessons from a famous coach could have only drained his wallet. But the skill and experience the athlete acquired during this period was esential in his further career.
Chuck Liddell net worth started to grow in the late 1990s, as he debuted on UFC. He has first gained reputation after the victories over established fighters Murilo Bustamante, Kevin Randleman, Vitor Belfort, Amar Suloev, Jeff Monson, Renato Sobral and Tito Ortiz. By the year 2002, most professionals have seen Chuck as the most likely next UFC Champion. Not only by this time the mixed martial artist has developed the strength and skill needed for ultimate fighting, but also a considerable fanbase. The subsequent fights versus, Coutre, Jackson, Ortiz, Horn and Sobral have turned Liddell into a real ultimate fighting hero. In the beginning of the year 2007 Liddell was at the top of his career and it seemed like he was going to stay there for a while. However, things did not work out that way. Over the next couple of years Chuck has lost to Jackson, Jarine, Silva, Evan, Shogun and Franklin, receiving a several knockouts and making his fans seriously concerned about his health. Following the series of defeats the former champion decided to retire and the growth of Chuck Liddell net worth slowed down
