 Chuck Liddell officially is retired from the UFC cage, but "The Iceman's" career isn't over.

The UFC Hall of Famer and former champion has turned in his fight gloves for a spot in the UFC's front office.

The 41-year-old MMA legend and business-school graduate today was named the UFC's executive vice president of business development.

"He's now on level and on par with all the top executives," UFC president Dana White said at today's pre-UFC 125 press conference at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

An emotional Liddell briefly addressed the media and fans. He thanked the UFC for a memorable career and said he looks forward to promoting a sport he helped put on the map.

"I love this sport, and I'm ready for a new chapter in my career," he said.

Is Liddell STILL the Executive VP of Business Development for the UFC? No offense, don't see Chuck thriving in this role.

Actually Dana's on the podium and "hold on Just got word that the LV Sun is listing Lorenzo as retiring.. this is not true. It;s chuck liddell that's retiring" (paraphrasing btw) then they shot to Chuck.. You could see the sorrow and regret building already.. Gordo your GIF might be more correct than you thought.

he doesn't have an MBA and why do you think he is a smart man? what has be done in the business world exactly? Take this announcement for what it is worth-it is dana giving chuck a paycheck so he doesn't fight elsewhere. If you think chuck is going to be doing anything related to ufc business you are a very silly person. This is a paycheck for chuck, nothing more.

Good for Chuck I miss seeing him fighting but I never want to see him get KOd again. Chuck will do fine in the new job and probably make great money.
