UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell fought an intense battle in L.A. this week -- no octagon ... just octonauts.
The Iceman waded through hoards of children at the Topanga Mall -- daughter in tow -- to check out "Octonauts! Live" ... a stage production based on the popular Disney show.
The kiddie crush was all smiles as they gazed at Captain Barnacle and Kwazii -- but by the look on Chuck's face, he just took one for the team.
Watch the show open and listen to the theme song ... you'll understand.
King of the Octonauts
