Well, twice wasn’t enough. Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell are meeting for the third time!
I didn’t think this was actually going to happen, but Oscar de la Hoya has announced that he’s signed Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz to meet under the Golden Boy banner. Oscar had the following to say via a Golden Boy press release.
“I’m proud to announce we’ve signed a deal for the fight between Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz. 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.”
It appears that Tito and Chuck are not just fighters in this situation, they’re partners as well. Chuck said he was a partner on this and never tires of punching Tito. If Tito and Chuck Liddell are in fact partners, it signifies an interesting change in the landscape of how business is being done.
No date for the bout has been selected, but Oscar did say the fight will take place in 2018.
