Golden Boy: Liddell vs. Ortiz 3 - november 24 (OFFICIAL DISCUSSION)

Post by Kingfedor on Mon Jul 02, 2018 4:18 pm


Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions is set to venture into the mixed martial arts world and the boxing legend has recruited two former UFC champions to headline the promotion’s first event.

The 48-year-old Liddell hasn’t competed in MMA since 2010. The “Iceman” was for a time the most devastating knockout artist in his weight class and holds notable victories over the likes of Vitor Belfort, Alistair Overeem, Wanderlei Silva and Randy Couture. Liddell was unable to regain vintage form once he lost his title to Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in 2006. After suffering consecutive knockout losses to Rashad Evans, Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua and Rich Franklin, Liddell retired but it wasn’t an easy decision for him.

Ortiz, 43, has been more active than Liddell in recent years, having fought nine times since his rival retired, but hasn’t competed since January 2017 when he submitted Chael Sonnen at Bellator 170.

I wonder if this will be PPV and a ring event. Also wonder if they will have boxing on the card as well.

This is so stupid. This fight has no business being made and neither guy should be fighting. It's frustrating Liddell still doesn't get it. What part of getting brutally knocked out three times in a row eight years ago do you not realize that you shouldn't be fighting anymore?

I don't understand this one either.

Yeah, I'm not sure what to think either. Now that it is happening, I do want to see it. I just hope they use a ring to hold this in.

Simple. It's a bad fight. What can I say? Neither should be fighting anymore especially Liddell, both are past their prime, the promotion doesn't look good, and who cares about this fight in 2018?

It's a crazy fight but since it is going to happen I will watch. I think Tito has a chance this time. I get your point though, it is a weird fight to make in 2018.

I think that's one of the reasons I'm not for it. In the first two fights, Tito had little to no chance of getting a knockout. In this fight, would any of us be surprised if Tito lands one punch on the jaw and knocks Chuck out cold? Nope. Obviously, there's more as both are well past their primes and you do worry about Chuck. It also doesn't make sense as Chuck is 2-0. Neither guy gains anything from it besides a paycheck as it does nothing for their careers and legacies. I don't think this will draw because most of MMA knows the ship sailed on any interest nearly a decade ago.

It's not a fight I would normally want to see either but since it is going to happen, I'll watch. I am kind of intrigued with what they will do with the rest of the card and whether this will be a ring promotion or another cage promotion.
