UFC legend Chuck Liddell has revealed that Irish superstar Conor McGregor is amongst his favourite MMA fighters in the modern era.

The 50-year-old, who officially retired from MMA last month, took part in a Q&A and was asked by one fan about the fighter he enjoys watching the most.

And former light heavyweight champ Liddell immediately said that McGregor, who returned to UFC back in January, was one of his favourites.

However, the 'Ice Man' also revealed that he is a big fan of Tony Ferguson, Yoel Romero, Israel Adesanya, Nate and Nick Diaz, Jorge Masvidal and Jose Aldo.

Liddell tweeted: "These days Conor is one of my favorites, Tony Ferguson, Yoel Romero, Israel Adesanya, The Diaz brothers, Jorge Masvidal and Jose Aldo."

McGregor, 31, has been a long-time admirer of the UFC Hall of Famer and shared a classy exchange with him on social media after a photo of the pair went viral.

Liddell has also showered the 'Notorious' with praise and even branded the UFC superstar a "bad**s."

The 'Ice Man' explained: "It's an honour for me to inspire a star, like Conor. He is a bad**s. One thing I most like about Conor is he 'walks the walk.'

"The fact that he even gave me credit for inspiring him really makes things come full circle for me in this sport. Living the dream!"
