Ultimate Fighter Down for the Count
Chuck Liddell eliminated from 'Dancing With the Stars'

Special to MSN TV
He certainly put in an effort, but Chuck Liddell has danced his last dance. The Ultimate Fighter was eliminated from "Dancing With the Stars" after turning in a less than thrilling two-step on Monday night. Ironically, this elimination comes just one week after Chuck's samba was chosen by the judges for an encore. Of course, they might have wanted to see his ridiculous rainbow puffed sleeves again!
Chuck will be missed. But, let's face it: He probably belongs in the ring, not on the dance floor. Want to know how your favorite celebrities fared this week with the two-step, the Charleston, the bolero and the lambada? Read on to see how it all went down.
Here are our remaining contenders, in the order that their names were called:
Her lambada had her tied with Melissa for the top spot. It was fun and flirty, but also incredibly graceful. She's still the one to beat in this race.
Clarissa takes it all! Melissa's Charleston was the surprise of the week and left the judges just as impressed with the actress as the crowd has been all along. The judges loved it so much that they chose it for tonight's encore.
Her stage fright is officially over! Kelly's Charleston was flirty, fast and fun. I can't wait to see what she does next week.
Her graceful bolero was a nice encore to last week's amazing rumba. This Olympian is really becoming a contender!
She and Derek turned in a fast and furious lambada that had several audience members fanning themselves. Almost too hot for TV! The judges loved it nevertheless.
They say the third time's the charm, and Mark's two-step really caught the judges' attention. Let's hope he can keep his focus next week.
The bolero didn't do this NFL legend any favors. He just kind of stood there and lifted his arms up from time to time. Bruno compared his dancing to the economy: "Every week it's supposed to be getting better, but nothing happens." Ouch.
Donny and Kym turned in a good, but not great Charleston. Donny will need to work on his steps if he wants to go all the way in this competition.
His two-step was more like a one-step. In a word, slooooow. The judges were certainly not impressed. It looks like Louie will be back to hitting the slopes any time now.
This week's lambada fell just as flat as last week's rumba. But Aaron managed to hold back the tears this time.
Who won the week: Melissa Joan Hart and Mya
Who needs to step it up: Michael Irvin and Louie Vito
Sound off: "DWTS" message boards
"Dancing With the Stars" airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
I have watched every season of DWTS and enjoyed some and was frustrated over some, laughed allot (love Tom Bergeron)and felt sorry for some stars with absolutely no feeling for the music. I watch because I love the pros. especially Tony and Cheryl. It is a pleasure to watch them dance even if it is only for a few minutes.
This season it is true not much talent here and Len needs surgery to remove that stick, but my biggest complaint this season, Mya a professional dancer in among the inept. not fair people, and her telling Dmitry how to dance if she can do that she belongs in another venue. This isn't the ballroom dancing of my day but it is fun most of the time.
Before anyone goes and get all bent out of shape remember all the stars whether they win or loose take home the same enormous pay check. The only ones getting the shaft here are the Pro's they should be getting way more than they do.
I love Chelsea and Louie together, even if his dancing isn't very good. She deserves to go farther in this competition. I just hope he gets better so they can stick around a little longer.
(AzCam- If it bothers you so much that people still watch DWTS, then why did you feel the need to comment on a DWTS article? And why don't you get your fat butt out of the computer chair and get a life.)
Well said, candle_chic! Some people can be such hypocrites.
Sixers- this is ballroom dancing. They are doing all the traditional dances. If you want to see "2009 dance styles", watch So You Think You Can Dance.

Mark Ballas is the biggest queen around!!! He needs to come OUT!!!!!
Aaron needs to go!!!! Karina needs to stop getting involved with everyone!!!!
According to an article in The Times a ridiculously large amount of women are wearing the wrong bra size. So how do you know if you've got it right? Basically, you should feel comfortable in your bra. It shouldn't be too tight or leave red marks behind. Nor should it be too baggy. If you can easily fit more than two fingers under the band of your bra than it may well be too big.
You would think, would you not, that now, more than ever, fashion would be straining its every muscle, sinew and tendon to produce wearable, irresistible clothes. But what do we find? Black, black and short. At least no one can say the message isn’t clear.

Mya dances as good as the Pros, her performances are perfection yet Len's scores are always low, is he joking?
