The Ultimate Fighting Championship has announced that former UFC light heavyweight champion and Charles “Mask” Lewis will be inducted into the UFC Hall Of Fame on July 10, at the UFC Fan Expo, in Las Vegas.

“I appreciate this gesture and I’m glad that people appreciate what I do and that they think that I deserve this, but I’m just one of the guys that fight out there,” said Liddell, who admitted that this crowning moment of his storied career does come with some bittersweet feelings due to the fact that he won’t be able to share it with his longtime friend Lewis, who was tragically killed in an automobile accident in March. “It’s gonna be a little rough being that it’s Charles and me, but for us to go in together, I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
