Tito Ortiz finally exacted some revenge against archrival Chuck Liddell in the inaugural main event for Golden Boy MMA on Saturday at The Forum in Inglewood, California, and he closed out "The Iceman" in vicious and unsettling fashion.
Jones, of course, has much bigger fish to fry than worrying about a hypothetical matchup against an aging Liddell.
As for Chuck Liddell, the former UFC light heavyweight champions future remains uncertain after the devastating setback. Instead, he was overly passive while giving Liddell a chance to tire himself out before following through with the finish at 4:24 of the opening round. Since Liddell retired, Ortiz has competed in 9 fights for both the UFC and Bellator. The whole gameplay was not getting him into a takedown, I wanted to take Chuck Liddell out. You're not taking eight years off, coming back in my cage and trying to stop me. Chuck, thank you. You pushed me hard, dude. You made me work super hard.
"At the end of the day Chuck, I'm a respectful man". I love all of you! We're starting a business with Oscar De La Hoya.
Ortiz, who already suffered two KO/TKO losses at the hands of Liddell at UFC 47 and UFC 66, but last night "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" earn an emphatic win over Liddell and shortly after he announced that he'd be hanging his gloves for good but will remain active as a fight promoter.
"I came back. I got in great shape". I made a mistake and it is what it is. I don't think it was my best showing for sure. I have no excuses.
