Liddell vs. Ortiz 3 to take place under Golden Boy banner

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.
