“Chuck (Liddell) was the most recognizable person in the sport at the time he fought Quinton (Jackson),” explains Parisyan. “When he got knocked out (at UFC 71 in May), at the press conference I saw him leaning against the wall by himself, just sad because he lost his belt, and everybody was around Quinton. Nobody even looked at Chuck.
This is how #$%$ up life is today. The guy can knock out five guys in a row, including our heavyweight champion back-to-back, and beat all these good fighters, and he loses one fight and everybody goes ‘well, he lost.’ When you don’t lose that often and then you lose once, everybody remembers that one loss.”
