Even barring this week's elimination, it was only a matter of time I guess before Chuck Liddell said goodbye to the Dancing with the Stars dance floor. It was quite obvious from his very first number alongside professional partner Anna Trebunskaya. That being said, the chunky MMA fighter feels sorry at least for his pro partner.

"I'm okay.  We worked real hard and I feel bad. I feel like I kind of let her down a little bit," he said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. "I wish I could of done better for her.  She worked real hard with a guy that's not real good at dancing."

What's next for the MMA fighter after Dancing with the Stars? The UFC, of course. He even joked that he had learned some new attack moves courtesy of his stint on Dancing with the Stars. "I'm going to dance across the floor before I hit him - distract him with my hips," he said.

Was he disappointed at the finish? "A little bit," adding that there were a couple of dances that he was looking forward to. The 10 remaining couples will dance either the exciting paso doble or Argentine tango plus a hustle group dance next week.

For her part, Trebunskaya said Liddell's performance on Dancing with the Stars was in no way a reflection of how much effort he put in week in and week out. "Honestly, I think work ethic wise he could have won it 300 times," she told Kimmel.  "Dancing-wise? Well, that's why he had a great work ethic."

Did Chuck feel any remorse toward the judges (or maybe an urge to just hit them) for the often harsh critiques? "They're knocking me for stuff that I was doing bad, so how am I going to get mad at them?  I was doing bad," he said.
