Tito Ortiz Announced Retirement Following A Brutal KO Win Over Chuck Liddell

  • MMA world in shock over brutal KO of 48-year-old

For Liddell, 48, it was his first appearance since retiring from the sport in 2011. The whole gameplay was not getting him into a takedown, I wanted to take Chuck Liddell out. I wanted this test! You're not taking eight years off, coming back in my cage and trying to stop me.

If you're wondering, the 43-year-old Ortiz is a considerable favorite to win tomorrow's bout.

As for Liddell, it was hard enough seeing him compete on Saturday night and it would be even tougher to imagine a scenario where he fights again following the loss to Ortiz in their third and seemingly final confrontation. Liddell had defeated Ortiz via knockout both times they previously fought.

That's when Ortiz blasted "The lceman" with a right hand to the chin and Liddell's eyes rolled back as he crumbled to the canvas. Liddell vs Ortiz 3 Live Stream - What time will the main card get underway in the UK?

As for those previous comments from Liddell, Jon Jones claims that he will never again respond to a callout from the Iceman following Saturday night's loss.




"I've got to be respectful".

“Chuck, thank you for taking this fight. I want to help give back to the fighters. We're starting a business with Oscar De La Hoya. Thank you, you pushed me hard, man. You know how much your dad works.”.

"You're a true champion, brother".

Liddell, who hasn't recorded a victory since his decision win over Wanderlei Silva in 2007, was noncommittal after the fight regarding his future. I made a mistake. It is what it is. I don't think it was my best showing for sure.

De La Hoya has not committed to another MMA event. Those wanting to watch the two MMA vets throw down online can do so by ordering the pay-per-view on FITE's official website. It marked the fourth straight time Liddell had been knocked out.
