Grappling - Though he is primarily a striker, Liddell has a strong background as a wrestler from both High School and College. He is good at maneuvering on the ground against decent grapplers and has a great sprawl that many talented wrestlers have struggled against. Liddell also possesses an uncanny ability to get back to his feet when taken down.
