Chuck Liddell, the UFC hall of famer and former light heavyweight champion, has signed a contract for his next move — but it won’t come inside of a cage, but instead in a house with a selection of other well-known names in the latest season of Celebrity Big Brother.
Liddell (48) had been teasing a comeback to the fight game, saying that he will do so assuming the compensation offered to him is adequate, but for now his next move will see him sharing a house with former White House political aide and The Apprentice contestant Omarosa Manigault.
American Pie star Shannon Elizabeth, Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath, The Cosby Show‘s Keshia Knight Pulliam, Real Housewife Brandi Glanville, former NBA star Metta World Peace, actors James Maslow and Marissa Winokur, TV personality Ross Matthews and Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez will also take part in the series.
The season is set to begin on February 7th.
Liddell is no stranger to reality television. Having been a coach in the very first season of the UFC’s flagship The Ultimate Fighter, as well as appearing on Dancing With The Stars and, more recently, Ultimate Expedition in which he appeared alongside Jackass star Steve-O in an attempt to scale a Peruvian mountain.
