Randy Couture vs. Chuck Liddell 4: Dance-Fight

Randy Couture

Randy Couture

As UFC history tells it, there have been three fights between Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell, with Liddell scoring two victories to Couture’s one.

The pair have (sort of) squared off in another field of battle as well — the hardwood floor of Dancing With The Stars.

Sarah analyzed the respective foxtrots the two did while on the dancing reality show.
