Chuck Liddell is wasted on Texas show - UPDATE

No, wait a second ... WASTED.

This morning UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Chuck Liddell appeared on "Good Morning Texas" to promote "300" -- a new Warner Brothers film that premieres nationwide next Friday, March 9.

It is without question one of the most interesting -- and hilarious -- interviews the champ has ever conducted.

Barely awake and unintelligible, Liddell revealed that he wants to fight Tommy Morrison in his next bout. Yes, the washed-up professional boxer -- not Quinton Rampage Jackson, Mirko Cro Cop Filipovic, Wanderlei Silva or any of the other studs he's mentioned during interviews recently.

Tommy Morrison.

That is about the only thing that I understood during the segment -- and even it didn't make sense.

It seems as though "The Iceman" is certainly enjoying himself -- perhaps a little too much -- while he prepares for his next fight.

He's either on some heavy shit, drank way too much, both, or developed a serious case of Parkinson's overnight.

Check out the clip here in the sidebar. And, listen to the post-interview report from Gary Cogill here about the debacle.

 

For your convenience, we also got the clip up on YouTube.com. Check it out:

Update: According to Loretta Hunt at FightNetwork.com, Liddell was wasted on NyQuil — a sleep medication that he took at 4 a.m. because of a sinus infection.

Here's a snip:

"UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Chuck Liddell's incoherent appearance on the AM TV Talk Show 'Good Morning Texas,' was attributed to illness commented both Liddell and his longtime trainer John Hackleman to The Fight Network this afternoon.

‘I am sick and rundown and need to get back to training,' Liddell emailed me this afternoon. Trainer Hackleman says Liddell has a sinus infection and took the sleep medication Nyquil at 4 AM to try and get rest."

He must have drank the bottle.
