The Iceman Got Put On Ice

Sad news to report that Chuck Liddell was knocked out tonight by Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in the first round of the UFC 71 title fight. Which is pretty amazing considering how Chuck was buzz-sawing through his last few fights.

But Rampage is a different style of fighter and sometimes one style just beats the other (given fighters of reasonably close talent, training and conditioning, of course).

Nothing against Rampage, I just have been a fan of the Iceman for a long time now. I like how he carries himself, like how he trains and love how he fights. The fact that my wife used to sort-of know him a long time ago in SLO is just kind of a cool tidbit.
