Chuck Liddell & Tito Ortiz are set to fight each other inside of a cage, but before then, someone thought they should appear on a local TV morning show. The UFC Hall of Famers appeared on “Good Day L.A.” which is a FOX-11 affiliate in Los Angeles where anchor Rita Garcia asked some questions.

So let’s go through some of these gems. Just a minute into the interview, Liddell forgets he’s on TV and drops an S-bomb. This led to Garcia later apologizing to the viewers for saying such a horrible word. Moving along, they were asked about their favorite “chick flick” movie as well as their favorite romantic song.

Then, we went back to school as they were asked to say one thing nice about each other despite the fact that they have hated one another for years. Liddell said Ortiz is a good father to his kids.

The Interview

On the flip side, Ortiz said that Liddell still can rock a mohawk. You can watch the fun times play out in this video:

Liddell and Ortiz have fought twice throughout their legendary careers, with “The Iceman” knocking out Ortiz at UFC 47 in 2004 and UFC 66 in 2006. Since that second fight, however, Liddell has lost five of his six bouts with four of those losses coming via stoppage.

The two MMA Legends are slated to meet for a third fight at an event that goes down on November 24, 2018, inside The Forum in Inglewood, California. This show will air live on pay-per-view event. Here is the fight card:

Randy Couture Reveals His Only Concern About Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz III

Randy Couture has one concern heading into this trilogy fight.

Randy Couture reveals his only concern heading into the third fight between Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz.

The two MMA Legends are slated to meet for a third fight at an event that goes down on November 24, 2018, inside The Forum in Inglewood, California. This show will air live on pay-per-view. More fights for the main and undercard of this show will be announced in the coming weeks.

Couture made it known in a recent interview that he has concerns about Liddell’s chances come fight night. It’s not about his age or even his chin but rather it’s about his time off from fighting.

“I’m not too concerned about the age, honestly,” Couture said in a recent interview on the MMA Hour. “I fought right up until where Chuck’s at right now, at a high level. My only concern with that is that Chuck hasn’t been competing. Hasn’t been sparring, hasn’t done anything in the fight realm other than regular strength and conditioning for the last eight years, since he retired.”

Liddell and Ortiz have fought twice throughout their legendary careers, with “The Iceman” knocking out Ortiz at UFC 47 in 2004 and UFC 66 in 2006. Since that second fight, however, Liddell has lost five of his six bouts with four of those losses coming via stoppage.

“So that puts the pressure on him to get back up into fight shape, back up. Get the timing back to where we’re used to seeing Chuck have going into a fight. He had that style where that timing was very, very important.”

Couture also brought up the key with Liddell’s success was due to his timing but with years away from active competition and his age, it will come into question.

“It wasn’t that he was the biggest, strongest or best athlete. He had a very unique timing, to find you right on the end of one of those long levers. Make it a short night. Now, whether he still has that timing. That’s the question.”

Couture continued by bringing up how Ortiz has been more active than Liddell in recent years. He thinks it will be interesting to see how this fight plays out with two men having their own strengths and weaknesses.

“Tito has been way more active, had some big fights. Will he be able to go out and implement his game plan? Which has gotta be getting in Chuck’s face, finding a way to get Chuck on the ground and take some gas out of Chuck. Certainly not standing and trying to trade with Chuck. Find out if he does have that timing. I think it’s gonna be interesting.”

Chuck Liddell Claims He’ll Retire Again If Tito Ortiz Beats Him

Chuck Liddell is so confident he will win this fight that he said this bold statement.

The post Chuck Liddell Claims He’ll Retire Again If Tito Ortiz Beats Him appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Chuck Liddell claims that he will walk away from the sport of MMA once again if his arch-rival Tito Ortiz will beat him come fight night. They have already agreed to do a trilogy fight.

Legend Continues

Liddell and Ortiz have fought twice throughout their legendary careers, with “The Iceman” knocking out Ortiz at UFC 47 in 2004 and UFC 66 in 2006. Since that second fight, however, Liddell has lost five of his six bouts with four of those losses coming via stoppage.

The two MMA Legends are slated to meet for a third fight at an event that goes down on November 24, 2018, inside The Forum in Inglewood, California. This show will air live on pay-per-view event. More fights for the main and undercard of this show will be announced in the coming weeks.

It’s been well established by UFC President Dana White that he didn’t want to see Liddell fight anymore after being knocked out several times in the later part of his pro-MMA career. However, that didn’t mean that Liddell had no desire to fight again. Thus, when a big money offer came his way, he took it.

Chuck Liddell Claims

The former UFC light heavyweight champion told Radio Rahim of Seconds Out that he will retire again if he can’t beat Ortiz for a third time.

“I’m fighting again. When I started getting back in shape, if I decided to fight I said I was gonna do two or three more after that. I got in shape, I’m ready to go. My body’s firing great. Everything’s going great and I’m ready to fight. This is just a great warm-up fight,” said Liddell (H/T to MMANews). “There’s not a better tuneup fight than him. I mean he’s someone I’m better than at everything, so it’s a great tuneup fight for me. If he beats me, I have no business being back in the ring again. If he beats me, I’m done.”
