Yes, but it's typical Chuck. He's like this more often than not... I'm surprised there aren't more clips like this out there already. I know I've seen interviews on TV where he was clearly drunk. In this, he looks drugged more than drunk...

The excuse I've read a few times is that he was sick, and heavily medicated on NyQuil.

NyQuil NyQuil Nyquil, we love you, you giant fucking Q.

Liddell just isn't a good spokesman for the sport, sober or otherwise. They should let the man stick to fighting and have guys like Rich Franklin be the poster child. Don't put people in a role they aren't suited for -- stuff like this happens.

I agree. Seeing Franklin on CNN a couple years back was great. However, being UFC's highest paid and most in-demand fighter (and looking the part too), it's understandable why they overlook Chuck's minuses as a spokesperson. He looks a lot more like a fighter than Franklin does.

As a sidenote, Chuck allegedly has pneumonia and was on Nyquil before the interview. On a video interview up on Sherdog right now, Dana White says Chuck's been sick for a while but nobody knew, and that he wants to beat the hell out of whoever the people are that are surrounding Chuck these days.

I think the fact that Rich looks less like a fight should be his strong point.
The UFC has always been fighting the stigma of "we're not just bar room brawlers". Let Franklin, a college grad and former teacher, show that point to the world.

I agree. However, working in the media, I can attest to the fact that most producers would rather put a guy who looks like Liddell or Tank Abbott than a clean-cut and well-spoken guy like Franklin.

But damn, is Franklin ever a great ambassador. It's a true shame that this side of him is under-utilized by the UFC.

I wasn't a fan of Animal Kingdom going into or out of the Derby so he really impressed me yesterday (I'm sure he slept better last night knowing that).
