The abrupt end to Chuck Liddell's participation in an international USO tour to support American troops has raised a few eyebrows.

The former UFC light heavyweight champion was part of a contingent of five celebrities joining a U.S. Marine general on an eight-day, five-country USO tour this week.

Liddell made the first part of the trek on Monday to Eielson Air Force Base near Fairbanks, Alaska, with rap duo the Ying Yang Twins, model and singer Mayra Veronica and comedians Gabriel Iglesias and Edwin San Juan. However, Liddell pulled out of the tour on Tuesday due to what both the USO and his management team, Zinkin Entertainment, deemed to be an unspecified illness.

However, unconfirmed reports quickly surfaced following Liddell's decision to bow out, including one that he was asked to leave by the USO after members of his entourage were found partying with minors............LINK

I feel the Iceman is slowly going to be removed from the limelight any time now even with a 1-3 record as of late how much longer will the UFC(Dana) keep him around

My first thoughts were "Partying with minors, wtf?!?!" but then I realized he might have just been drinking some beers with some 18 or 19 year old soldiers and because of that they were considered "minors" - they weren't 21 and old enough to buy beer yet.

If that's the case then it's b.s. Granted I was stationed in Germany, so it wasn't able to be enforced outside the gates, but if you were 18, 19, or 20 they tried to keep you from drinking on base. What a bunch of horse shit. You can get deployed to Iraq to die, but you can't drink a beer. Granted some kids can't handle their liquor, but still. One of my friends (the kid was still a wet-behind-the-ears 18 year old) got killed in a God awful manner over there, and yet he couldn't drink a fricken beer on base.

I'll wait until the full story comes out on this one.

Well said man, and I'm sorry to hear about your buddy.

Whether Chuck was asked to leave or not he gave those guys a chance to relax and it was probably the highlight of thier year.

DRUNKEN ICEMAN!!

Nothing was sustantiated. Probably a party that got out of hand. But when your the Iceman and you have a bunch of drunken pumped up soilders wanting to party with you....things will get out of hand in a hurry. Chuck has has two devastating Ko in his last three fights but i believe he wil rebound and make another run at the title. How about a fight between Chuck and Machida?!?!?!?!?!?!?! never count out the Liddell
