    Also you have to have the genetic make-up to fight. Like any athlete, you build and hone your skills on top of your natural ability. Some people just aren’t physically and mentally meant to fight.

    One of the first stars and Dana White paid him PEANUTS. To this day they're still over working and underpaying ppl. Then when you don't go with the program, they chastise you and try to discredit you like they're doing Tito.

    Thanks for the video, he lost those fights because he was boxing 🥊 not fighting UFC style, not all the rocks are made of the same materia, anyway he is the greatest of all of them, and he achieved all he wanted to achieve. Thanks for your experience Chuck

    This man was considered as the Mike Tyson of MMA. He had charisma and a very entertaining fighting style. Unfortunately he started partying a lot. Even when he was on training. He would go to the clubs the night before a fight for crying out loud. Sometimes he would be so out of shape, he actually went to a fight with a beer belly. Another thing is that this guy barely tried to evolve as a fighter. He got into the sport when MMA was very young. Back then fighters fought in a style they were comfortable with and just tried to make it work against other styles. I.e. if you were a boxer, youd fight mostly with your fists and worked on punches to counter take down attempts. If you were a wrestler you avoided fighting on your feet where you are totally out of your element. But in recent years many fighters tried to be more well-rounded. I.e. Silva though from a BJJ background really practiced on his boxing, and GSP from a Karate Background really dedicated to Jiu Jitsu. Lidell though has a wrestling background, and had good take down defense always liked to fight standing up with his fists way down his waist. This is why he became way too easy to figure out.

    Sadly I really wanted Lidell to have more longevity, because unlike Ortiz who was a douchebag, he was really a likeable champion. And we can not deny that his presence helped the UFC move to mainstream. Back then it was recognized nothing more but human cockfighting. It also broke my heart to see Ortiz KO him, when in their primes Ortiz avoided meeting him in the octagon like a plague.
