Chuck 'The Waxman' Liddell heads to Madame Tussauds after UFC Fan Expo debut


Anyone who thought Chuck Liddell was a bit a stiff in real life hasn't seen anything yet.

The former UFC light heavyweight champion -- who many consider to be one of the fighters instrumental in the promotion's rise to power -- will soon become a permanent fixture on the Las Vegas strip (again) when he joins the long list of celebrities immortalized in wax.

"The Iceman" will be unveiled at the UFC Fan Expo on Friday, May 28, 2010, at 10:30 a.m. PT at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center before heading to his final resting place at the Madame Tussauds wax museum, which is located in front of the Venetian Resort Hotel and Casino.

Hopefully, the air conditioners are working inside the Fan Expo that day.

Like most wax figures, Liddell came with a price tag of about $300,000 and took a team of nearly 20 artists four months to complete.
