Video: Former UFC champ, Chuck Liddell, trains Cleveland Browns players to ‘fight’ in NFL

Looks like former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion, Chuck Liddell, is taking time out from his Tito Ortiz camp to share some of his combat sports knowledge with the Cleveland Browns, who are 1-32 over the last two years and willing to try just about anything to find that win column.

Even if it means “fighting” on the gridiron.

“The bigger thing we work on is mindset, to try to get these guys to treat it like a fight,” Liddell said. “You’re fighting the guy in front of you. You’re trying to break him, mentally and physically. It’s a fight. This is not just a game, we’re fighting to win.”

I guess desperate times call for desperate measures and the Browns were shutout last season at 0-16.

Liddell, 48, knows a thing or two about slumps, having finished his UFC career with three straight losses, all of them by way of knockout. He’ll try to go three-up on Ortiz if and when Oscar de la Arum ever gets his “Golden Boy” fight promotion off the ground.
