UFC 79: Chuck Liddell Beats Wanderlei Silva

The Iceman is back.

At UFC 79, America's most popular mixed martial arts fighter, Chuck Liddell, beat the Brazilian Wanderlei Silva with a dominant unanimous decision.

For Liddell, it was an opportunity to get back on track after losing his last two fights. He badly hurt Silva, bloodied him, and beat him senseless. It's a credit to Silva that he wasn't knocked out, but it was clear that Liddell won the fight handily.

It's great news for UFC that it's biggest star is back on the winning side of the ledger.

Silva now has a three-fight losing streak.
