Tito Ortiz Believes Manager Should've Prevented Chuck Liddell From MMA Return

  • Chuck vs. Tito 3 Poster

The former UFC champs fought in 2004 and 2006, and Liddell stopped his fellow star in both scraps. "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" Tito Ortiz 3 is the long awaited rubber-match between two long time rivals who were once good friends but turned into enemies and it takes place on November 24 at The Forum in Inglewood, CA. The 205-pound contest headlined the first MMA event by Golden Boy Promotions. The rust did show, as the once-feared striker looked tentative in the cage and slow in his reactions. Still, Liddell stood with his powerful right hand cocked just waiting to unleash it but that moment never came. I wanted this test! You're not taking eight years off, coming back in my cage and trying to stop me. He has long maintained he and Liddell (21-9) were close friends when the UFC and Liddell chose to break the friendship and promote a title fight between them.

Jones, of course, has much bigger fish to fry than worrying about a hypothetical matchup against an aging Liddell. He pawed at his own chin and dared Liddell to swing, as he walked his rival down.

Chuck Liddell was knocked out by Tito Ortiz in the first round of their third fight.

“Woooooo! I want to shout out to my son Jacob who I talked to on the phone – to my son Jesse, Jr. too I want you to know that dad loves you! Chuck hasn't fought since retiring in 2010 after suffering 3 losses back to back by KO. You pushed me so hard for all of these years and you made me work hard. "You're a f-ing true champion, bud".

After a hiatus from the octagon due to a U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) suspension, Jones is set to return to the octagon next month when he rematches Alexander Gustafsson for the vacant UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 232 in Las Vegas. Entering the bout he had said he wished to fight a couple of times, but he also stated that if he lost to Ortiz he probably shouldn't be fighting anymore. "I was ready for this fight", Liddell said after the loss. I made a mistake. It is what it is. I don't think it was my best showing, but I got in shape.

De La Hoya has not committed to another MMA event.
