Chuck ‘The Iceman’ Liddell knows a thing or two about getting hit inside the UFC’s Octagon, as he is the former king of the 205-pound division.

When he sees former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar compete inside the Octagon, he sees a man who is afraid to get hit. It’s no secret, and no fighter really wants to get hit, but ‘The Iceman’ feels Lesnar is particularly vulnerable to strikes.
