Chuck Liddell Tailgates At San Diego Chargers Playoff Game

Chuck Liddell munches on a cookie and sports a black eye garnered from the Wanderlei Silva fight while hanging with tailgaters at the Charger-Titans game this past weekend.

The Liddell-Silva numbers are in and the fight brought in huge numbers.

Chuck Liddell and Wanderlei Silva earned their keep in the Octagon. The see-sawing strikers, with some assistance from a scorching rubber match showdown between welterweights Georges St. Pierre and Matt Hughes, netted $4,994,500 in gate sales for Dec. 29’s UFC 79 “Nemesis” at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

The event becomes the second highest gate in Nevada (and U.S.) history, behind last New Year’s UFC 66 extravaganza that pitted “The Iceman” against former friend and training partner Tito Ortiz on Dec. 30 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. That event brought in $5,397,300.
