The UFC is home to some of the greatest MMA fighters in the world. These fighters bring the most elite fighting skills to the Octagon and amaze fans around the world with their exceptional martial arts knowledge.
However, the UFC isn’t just about fighting. It is a sports entertainment organization, after all, and it is currently the best in MMA. Whether it’s the incredible fights or the heated trash talk battles that UFC fighters engage in with their opponents; the promotion has no shortage of entertainment and artists.
Some of its most famous artists – Conor McGregor, Ronda Rousey, Jorge Masvidal, Israel Adesanya and others – are appreciated for their martial arts skills, style and charismatic personality. The world’s top UFC stars have repeatedly shown that competing in a grueling sport like MMA doesn’t mean compromising on style.
In fact, one can use the platform provided by the UFC and display the styles to a wider audience. On that note, today we take a look at some of the UFC’s most iconic hairstyles. These are hairstyles that will forever be among the most memorable in UFC history.
# 5 Chuck Liddell
“The Iceman” and his iconic Mohawk haircut was the first thing that came to mind when someone heard the word UFC. That was Chuck Liddell’s impact on promotion and MMA in its heyday.
Chuck Liddell was one of the first MMA fighters to break into a mainstream star. He has also connected as a bona fide star with the combat sports audience outside of MMA. Whether it’s boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai or MMA, Liddell is recognized by almost everyone because of his exceptional fighting skills and unique personality.
The dreaded knockout artist won the UFC light heavyweight title and faced some of the best fighters in the world throughout his MMA career. With victories over Alistair Overeem, Vitor Belfort and Tito Ortiz (in his first two fights against Ortiz), Liddell cemented his legacy as one of the true legends of the sport of MMA.
Chuck Liddell’s last fight was a first round knockout loss to Tito Ortiz at Golden Boy Promotions: Liddell vs. Ortiz 3 (November 2018). He later retired from MMA but is still one of the most famous figures in combat sports, known by many as the UFC titan with the Mohawks.
