The Iceman cometh

Former Cal Poly wrestler Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell is quickly becoming the Central Coast’s biggest celebrity.
He’s on the cover of ESPN Magazine this month.
He’s mentioned in a Sports Illustrated cover story on ultimate fighting this week.
He was on Jim Rome’s TV show and The Best Damn Sports Show this week.
He’s made appearances on Entourage and Blade, and recently found himself in the middle of a Punk’d episode.
Tonight’s weigh-in for the fight will be featured on most sports highlight shows (live on ESPNews at 3:50 p.m.) with Saturday’s fight against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson likely dominating headlines for the remainder of the weekend.
But you’ll have to pay to see him fight live Saturday at 7 p.m. from the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The fight is a pay-per-view showing, unless you get out to one of the local sports bars that will be carrying the fight.
So far, The Graduate and The Shack have announced they’re showing the fight. I’ll add to this list if I hear of anywhere else.

Who do you like to win Saturday's fight?
