UFC Hall of Famer, Chuck Liddell, is no doubt one of the greatest fighters of all-time. During his title reign, Liddell's fan-pleasing, power punching style electrified audiences and most certainly played a factor in helping the sport blow up and get to where it is today.

In a 2018 interview for Valuetainment, we see Chuck let an unfortunate soul feel his legendary punching power at the 46-minute mark in the video below.

Although the recipient of the punch is wearing headgear and Chuck isn't punching at quite 100%, you can still see that it is quite a solid punch (especially on the second dude he hits) due to the guy's head getting snapped back.

Guys with heavy hands who possess knockout power like Liddell don't always have to put everything into a punch for it to do damage. Plenty of times during the "Iceman's" legendary career, he knocked fighters out with punches that didn't look like they had a whole lot behind them. One example being his knockout victory over Vernon 'Tiger' White at UFC 49.

Prior to to Liddell dealing out some love, he went into great detail about his lengthy street fighting background when he was growing up, and he even gave his opinion on UFC megastar Conor McGregor and how he felt about his antics at the time.

Liddell went 21-9 during a remarkable MMA career. Scoring victories over other greats of his time like Tito Ortiz, Randy Couture, Vitor Befort, Kevin Randleman, and Wanderlei Silva.
