In case you missed it last night, former UFC light heavyweight champ-turned twinkle toes Chuck Liddell advanced to the 3rdRound of the “Dancing with the Stars” competition. Although Liddell and his partner, Anna Trebunskaya, didn’t drop any jaws with their intense tango, it was enough in the eyes of the fans as they represented for “the Iceman.”

ABC made Liddell a little too fluffy last week in his “Dancing with the Stars” debut so they decided to take fans to Liddell’s dark side with his routine for Week 2.

Liddell took us behind the fight scene with his partner in last night’s routine as she treated fans to an impressive impersonation of Liddell’s long-time trainer John Hackleman at the beginning of their skit.

The performance earned Liddell a total score of 19, which was good enough to advance to Week 3 of the dance competition.

Don’t forget to vote for Liddell so we can keep this MMA thing moving!
