Chuck Liddell Looks to Improve Upon his Samba, Not Sambo

Don’t forget to catch former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell’s fourth hardwood routine tonight on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. The show will be jumping off at 8PM ET/PT.

Week 1 saw Liddell and his partner, Anna Trebunskaya, heat up the dance floor with their rendition of the Foxtrot, which earned them 16 points. They went on to nab 3rd Place in the relay round with their salsa number, netting them a total of 22 points.

The pair were engaged in an intense tango in Week 2 where they took us behind the fight scenes. Trebunskaya treated fans to an impressive impersonation of Liddell’s long-time trainer John Hackleman at the beginning of their skit, and their routine garnered them a total score of 19.

Last week, the pair shredded up the dance floor with a semi-hot samba routine that earned them a total of 17 points. Twinkle toes, ahem Liddell, knows that he’s gonna have to step his game up if he plans on going deeper in the tournament.

“Last week’s Tango came naturally,” Liddell said after his floor exercise. “This week’s Samba is a whole other changer.”

REMEMBER: This isn’t just a stupid dance show for a bunch of has-been celebs. Well, maybe it is for some people, but for Liddell, his performance on the show could very well blast open the mainstream doors for the sport of mixed martial arts.

Also, the longer we keep Liddell on the show, the more times we can post Chuck’s sexy “DWTS” promo pic!
