Chuck Liddell Choked Out A Pornstar
On the DVDASA podcast, Asa Akira, who simply went by Akira or "The Show Whore" in the past, tells her Chuck Liddell choking story. I don't know the exact date, but it was some time between 2006-2007, so that means at the time Chuck either was the champ or had just lost to Rampage Jackson.
In hindsight, (former) UFC light-heavyweight Champ, Chuck Liddell, choked out the now, multiple time AVN award winner, and director, Asa Akira.

Asa Akira: One time Chuck Liddell choked me out. Let me tell you he did an amazing job. We had [Chuck] as a guest when I was on [Bubba The Love Sponge Show] and I asked him to choke me out.
David Choe: He was on top of you?
Asa Akira: He just went right behind me and he choked me out like this. (doing rear naked choke action)
David Choe: Was he hard? He wasn’t inside you?
Asa Akira: I don’t think he was hard. I mean I passed out, so maybe… He choked me until I passed out, but he did it the perfect amount. I barely passed out and then I woke up and I felt like I was high for like two minutes. He did a really good job let me tell you.
If you want to watch Chuck Liddell choke out the Jennifer Lawrence of Porn (they both won the top award in their respective fields in the last few years) you can do so with this.
And there you have it yet another MMA-Porn relation. From Tito to Jenna, and War Machine to sanity. MMA and Porn seems to always find each other, even if you don't know it.
I, for one, don't think it's completely strange that MMA and Porn cross paths. Both perform something that is somewhat considered "taboo" and doing something that isn't deemed a "normal" career.
*note- Asa Akira was not a porn star at the time of choking
