Spike TV to Air “Ultimate Iceman” Chuck Liddell on May 31

PRESS RELEASE:
New York, NY, May 7, 2008 — On Saturday, May 31, the best mixed martial arts programming on television will be on Spike TV, as the network presents a special night dedicated to UFC® superstar Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell. The homage to Liddell will feature two Spike TV premiere events not to be missed by true UFC fans.

At 9:00pm ET/PT, Spike presents the world television premiere of “Ultimate Iceman: Chuck Liddell,” an hour-long documentary which chronicles the life of one of the sport’s true titans, in and out of the Octagon“„¢.

Spike debuts a special, “Liddell vs. Silva: UFC® Unleashed“„¢-Special Edition” at 10:00pm ET/PT featuring the never-before-seen on cable battle between Liddell and Wanderlei Silva, which was fought last December at UFC 79: NEMESIS.

This historic contest featured the matchup that fight fans waited years to see. Liddell, the biggest name in the sport and former UFC light-heavyweight champion, sought to finally answer the challenges of the long-time PRIDE® superstar Wanderlei “The Axe Murderer” Silva. The special includes additional backstage exclusive footage.

Fighting out of San Luis Obispo, CA, “The Iceman” has a 21-5 professional record. Considered by many to be the biggest star ever in the history of mixed martial arts, Liddell successfully defended his title five times, all by knockout or submission, before giving it up to Rampage Jackson last year. He is currently recovering from a severe hamstring injury he suffered while training, which forced him to withdraw from a fight with “The Ultimate Fighter® 2″ Rashad Evans at UFC 85 in June.

Spike TV will kick off this special night dedicated to the “Iceman” at 8:00pm ET/PT with a telecast of the hard-hitting special, “Ultimate Knockouts 4,” also featuring some of Liddell’s most memorable bouts.

    Can't wait to see this.

  3. kimbo is not the only fight, although i personally don't mind watching him knock out bums.

  4. Hmmm. Same night as the network primetime debut of MMA. Which to choose, which to choose. Live fight, or taped Iceman lovefest. Hmmm.

  5. we finally get to see chuck in action and how he gets all those bimbos.

  6. rickr3 says:

    I would rather watch reruns of Chuck than Bimbo knock out another Bum.

  7. the real deal is Scott Smith vs. Robbie Lawler. THAT I wants to see. I’ll Tivo Chuck

  8. Thompson isn't a bum. He just has a big button on his jaw which makes him a ringer for Kimbo.

  9. he beat Yoshida in Pride – so I doubt he's a bum…

Speak Your Mind
