Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Chuck Liddell has been teasing a return to action for quite some time now.
Those plans are going to be on hold for the near future because the former MMA champion is a cast member on the celebrity edition of the reality show “Big Brother.”
Liddell is going to join other celebrities like Shannon Elizabeth, Brandi Glanville, Ariadna Gutierrez, Marissa Jaret Winokur, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Omarosa Manigault, James Maslow, Ross Matthews, Mark McGrath and Metta World Peace on the show.
The reality show will run opposite the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, so big ratings aren’t expected for Liddell’s next foray into reality TV. CBS is going to airing the reality show, while NBC is going to be airing the Olympics.
This isn’t the first time Liddell has appeared on reality TV, because he was a coach opposite former UFC Light Heavyweight & Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture on the first ever season of the UFC Ultimate Fighter. Liddell has also appeared on the ninth season of Dancing With the Stars, but finished in 11th place on the show.
UFC 115 was the last time fans saw Liddell in action, but he suffered a first round knockout loss to former UFC Middleweight Champion Rich Franklin on that night.
