Im gonna say that its because UFC didnt let the show use their name, logo or likliness because of their relationship with FOX and the show is on CBS.

<<Wall of text warning>>No kidding.. Its pure conjecture but let me explain my logic. Chuck sort of got forced into retirement after the KO by Franklin. His new position in the company was announced as "Executive Vice President of Business Development." by Dana White. "Many people helped get us to where we are today," White continued. "But there has been one guy that really stands out, as a great fighter, a great champion, a great partner, and a great friend. So I am thrilled to announce that Chuck is now one of our top executives." Dana WhiteAt the UFC 125 press conference Liddell had this to say about his new position."I love the sport and I'm excited to go into a new stage in my life and keep promoting something that I love," Liddell said. "I've enjoyed everything about being a professional athlete and a UFC champion. At this point in my life though, the real challenge for me is to continue helping the UFC become the global powerhouse that we all know it will become. I look forward to working with everyone at the UFC, especially all of the fighters, to make the UFC the biggest and most successful sports organization." Chuck LiddellNow Chuck is a fighter at heart, and a former champion, and I can't imagine going out on a loss would sit well for him. A UFC tenured salary of sorts for a legend of the sport would likely be a sizable one. So why would a "senior" executive of the UFC take a cameo spot on a popular television show representing himself fighting for a rival promotion? Did he need the money at the time bad enough to risk losing an easy paycheck? Or could it be possible he wants to get back in the cage? Do you not recognize a conflict of interest here?Quotes were taken from this articlehttp://www.fightline.com/fl/news/2010/1231/535144/chuck-liddell/
