Heidi Northcott is now engaged to mixed martial arts star Chuck Liddell after the two have been dating for little more than over a year.

The two met at a party organized by a common friend and after meeting, the two have been dating ever since. Liddell took Northcott on a helicopter ride across the Grand Canyon and after the trip around the canyon, Liddell ashed her to marry him. How romantic.

Who would have thought that a man who is known for pounding other guys' faces into the canvas in the UFC would have such a soft and romantic side. Neither Liddell or Northcott have been married before and this will be their first, and hopefully, last shot at marriage.

I still can't get over how impressed I am with Liddell's way to pop the question. Liddell's career in the UFC is all but done, but it's good to see that he has something to look forward to after mixed martial arts.
