Watch Tito Ortiz knockout Chuck Liddell

Watch Tito Ortiz knockout Chuck Liddell

It had been 14 years since the two light heavyweight legends first met inside the Octagon, but more importantly, it had been eight long years since Liddell had fought. Well, it seems Ortiz actually delivered on his promise.

"I work to try and pay the bills and I do it to entertain each and everyone of these fans", Ortiz said.

"I was ready for this fight", Liddell said. It just shows you dont take 8 years off and walk into my cage.”.

Leading up to the fight, Liddell insisted that he wasn't coming back for a single fight, a single payday, but wanted to continue fighting. "You're a f-ing true champion, bud".

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 made a mistake.

De La Hoya made both fighters equal partners with himself for the fight, which promised them a larger upside should the PPV do well than they reportedly received in any of their previous fights with UFC. I wanted to give my best performance but I came short.”. "There is nobody left I want to fight". I have no excuses.

In an unexpected trilogy bout between two of MMA's greatest rivals, Ortiz (20-12-1) knocked out Chuck Liddell at 4 minutes, 24 seconds of the opening round at The Forum. I got in shape, I was ready for this fight. "I don't know what I'm going to do". "You have to fail to succeed". Train, live and fight like a warrior.

Thanks for stopping by.
