Arguably the most popular MMA fighter of all time, Chuck Liddell will make a special appearance at the Bodybuilding.com Los Angeles Fitness Expo presented by Subway Restaurants on January 29 and 30, 2010 at The Los Angeles Convention Center, 1201 South Figueroa Street, West Halls A/B.
"It’s an honor to welcome a fighter of Chuck’s caliber to the Expo,"said Los Angeles Fitness Expo Executive Director Erin Ferries. "The Iceman’s overall reputation and popularity has made him the sport’s most invaluable ambassador, and as a legend, his appearance will fuel our Expo competitors and attendees passion for the sport."
Chuck’s background in Keno Karate, Koei-Kan Karate, Kickboxing and collegiate wrestling have made him a feared competitor, with a reputation for brutal striking. His ferocious style earned him the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship, after a brutal 1st round knockout of Randy Couture. Spanning over 12 years, his professional career was recently immortalized in the UFC Hall of Fame.
Liddell’s persona outside of the ring has helped propel the sport and himself into a mainstream stratosphere, with numerous appearances on reality shows, movies, and television including highly publicized stints on Dancing with the Stars and Entourage. He has also authored an autobiography, entitled Iceman: My Fighting Life.
Liddell will be signing autographs and taking photos with fans at the Ultimate Iceman Supplements booth on the exhibition floor. The specific day and times of appearance will be announced at www.thefitexpo.com as the show date nears.
