In 1998 Chuck Liddell made his UFC debut at UFC 17 in Mobile, Alabama, with a decision victory over Noe Hernandez.
An expert in Kempo, Koei-Kan Karate, kickboxing, wrestling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Liddell went on to become a UFC legend and was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame in 2009.
The Californian MMA fighter is widely regarded as the reason MMA entered the mainstream of American sports and entertainment. He still holds the record for the most knockouts in UFC history at 13.
In a nutshell, he's a complete badass.
Away from the fighting, however, he's a husband to fellow MMA fighter Casey Noland and father to two children, a son called Cade and a daughter called Trista.
Every father dotes on their daughter, and Liddell is no different - especially now that Trista is an age where boys become an issue. With a father like Liddell, you'd have to be a real brave guy to ask Trista out on a date.
Whoever this lad is, we salute you for asking Trista to her first dance. I wouldn't want to be in that tux with Liddell watching my every move...
Fair play to the lad, he looks cool, calm and collected on the outside.
I'm sure he feels a bit different on the inside.
