UFC president Dana White has officially announced the retirement of former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell, at Wednesday’s UFC 125 prefight press conference.

Following this announcement came the shocking news that Liddell would also be named the UFC Executive Vice President of Business Development.

“A lot of people have worked hard, fighters who have gone out and put on incredible performances, great shows, traveled all over the world, but there’s one guy who really stands out and who has been a great partner, a great friend, a great champion, the list goes on and on,” said White. “I’m here today with my partner Lorenzo Fertitta to announce his retirement.”

After White made the announcement, Liddell went on to say, “Most of all I want to thank my fans and my family. I love this sport and I’m excited to go to this new stage in my life and keep promoting the best sport in the world, the sport I love… now that I’m retired.”
