People can't get enough of this UFC 71 stuff (Liddell stories are regularly the most visited links on The Tribune's Web site). So here's some more prefight hype looking ahead to Saturday night's Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell vs. Quinton "Rampage"
Liddell (B.S., Bus. Admin., 1995) graduated from Cal Poly 12 years ago, majoring in accounting and wrestling for the Mustangs during his undergraduate years.
I was going to post the video of tonight's weigh-in, but figured a clip of the two fighters jumping around in their skivvies along with half-naked ring girls probably wouldn't fly with the higher ups.
Instead, I'll offer up the latest news links previewing the fight and you can browse the MMA sites at your discretion:
