Tito Ortiz and Chael Sonnen have been teasing a rematch, and it’s sounding more and more like it just might happen.

Ortiz was recently interviewed by TMZ Sports, and asked about the potential rematch with “The Bad Guy.” Ortiz said that he’s not going to submit Sonnen this time around. If they step into the cage against one another again, “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” vows to “smash” Sonnen (via MMA News):

“I’m gonna pummel him for 3 rounds, I’m gonna smash Chael,” Ortiz said. “I’m not gonna choke him, I’m not gonna submit him, I’m gonna smash him.”

Sonnen and Ortiz first fought back in January of 2017. It was a rivalry that had been brewing for the past several years, going back to the pair’s days on the amateur wrestling mat. Ortiz was able to score a first-round submission win over Sonnen. The bad blood between the pair shone through when Ortiz initially refused to let go of the choke after the tap.

The referee had to forcibly remove Ortiz from Sonnen’s back. Ortiz’s victory was the first of a two-fight win streak. He went on to defeat another longtime veteran, Chuck Liddell, the following year for Golden Boy Promotions. As for Sonnen, he racked up a two-fight win streak after his loss to Ortiz. That came to an end against Fedor Emelianenko this past October.

Now, with both men towards the back end of their respective fighting careers, a rematch could well be on the horizon.

The legendary feud between former UFC light heavyweight champions Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz will receive an ESPN ’30 For 30′ special.

ESPN’s ’30 For 30′ account made the news official on Twitter with a video advertisement that included Ortiz and Liddell. Check it out here:

Liddell and Ortiz have put on some historic fights inside the cage. They first squared off at UFC 47 in 2004. Liddell finished “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” in the first round with a knockout. “The Iceman” went on to capture the 205-pound strap, and eventually defended it against Ortiz at UFC 66.

While he was able to put up a much better fight this time around, Ortiz was again finished by Liddell. This time in the third round via TKO. Over 10 years later, Liddell and Ortiz decided to fight one more time.

They headlined Oscar De La Hoya’s first-ever Golden Boy Promotions MMA event. Ortiz finally got his first win over Liddell in the contest. While the argument could be made Liddell never should have been licensed to fight, Ortiz still won with a first-round knockout.

Liddell’s days of fighting are likely done, but Ortiz still seems like he has some fight in him. With that being said, it will be interesting to see how ESPN presents one of the greatest rivalries in the history of the UFC.
