Here’s a fight that is many years in the making, you may remember Chuck and Tito coached against each other on The Ultimate Fighter. They was expected to fight each other at the end of the season, Tito pulled out due to an injury. Dana then removed him as coach and brought in Rich Franklin to finish the season as coach and to fight Chuck Liddell.
Chuck went on to lose to Franklin and then retire. Well the Iceman is back and he is going to take on former rival Tito Ortiz. The fight will take place for Golden Boy Promotions. Oscar De La Hoya had this to say.
“I’m proud to announce we’ve signed a deal for the fight between Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz,” De La Hoya told ESPN, via a statement. “This will be huge for sports fans around the world. Ortiz and Liddell are two of the most recognized fighters in MMA history. They are legends in the sport.
”Everyone remembers their rivalry helped put the sport on the map, and we’re excited to host the next and final chapter of this historic rivalry.”
Chuck won the first two fights, He is 48 years old now. Tito has fought many times since Chuck Liddell retired and is 43 years old. Who has the upper hand at this point is hard to say. Only time will tell.
