OG Tank Abbott dishes on Tito vs Chuck. Shocker, wasn’t impressed at all

tank-abbott-dishes-tito-chuck-shocker-impressed

Surprise surprise! David Tank Abbott is not impressed with Tito Ortiz’ knockout victory over Chuck Liddell. Tito could cure cancer and Abbott would say that it was pathetic how he did it. Those two just hate each other and that’s the way it is. Therefore, it will be endless insults until they are old(er) and gray(er).

Tank is recovering from near-death and he looks to be injecting himself into the media again. He’s in rough shape so don’t expect any sort of comeback. He is, however, getting his mug in front of cameras and telling it like he thinks it is.

Abbott isn’t shy about what he says and he means all of it. Long story short; Abbott was not impressed by Tito Ortiz’ performance.

Chuck speaks about his fight and has a message much larger than MMA

chuck-speaks-message-larger-mma

Chuck Liddell hopped onto his YouTube channel and had a message for all of his fans. As it turns out, his fight with Tito was much larger than just an MMA fight for him. He did not address his performance, rather, he speaks about having obstacles that he wanted to overcome. Granted, a fighter’s mentality is a lot different than regular folk but his message was for them as well.

“For anyone out there struggling with self-doubt or a physical, mental, or emotional challenge, I encourage you to face your challenges. Chase your dreams and risk everything to achieve your goals. Even if no one else understands, know that everyone’s path is different. You can not achieve success without failure.”

Hopefully Chuck did what he needed to do and we are done seeing him fight in the cage. Maybe this route of motivational speaker is in his future because he seems pretty damn good at it.

Tito Ortiz sends respectful but stern message to Dana about fighter pay

Dana White seemed unpleased with Golden Boy MMA getting the fight between Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell sanctioned. Both Dana and a lot of fans were not pleased when they saw Chuck in the cage. Putting Chuck in there sends a message that people way past their prime can compete, regardless of safety.

Tito Ortiz Says Chuck Liddell Should Never Fight Again. We’re on board.

tito-ortiz-chuck-liddell-board

Tito Ortiz did what a contracted fighter is supposed to do when fighting another fighter. He signed on the dotted line and went out and performed. He thrashed Chuck Liddell in their trilogy fight. It came as no surprise to anyone who had watched Chuck even just hit pads. Tito did his job, however, Chuck should have never been in there in the first place. Everyone got on board the ‘Please never fight again, Chuck’ train and now Tito Ortiz is sharing the same sentiment.

Tito straight up said he didn’t want to fight Chuck for a fourth time. He even began saying that if Chuck wanted it again, he’d oblige. Tito paused, however, and retracted what he was going to say. Then, he came right out and said: “I don’t think he should”.

Neither do we. Chuck has nothing else to prove and his body keeps trying to tell him that.

Full Chuck vs Tito fight. It turned out to be exactly what we thought it’d be.

chuck-tito-fight-turned-exactly

We all hoped that the footage of Chuck training was just our eyes playing tricks on us. There’s no way at 48 years old he could possibly have lost so much of a step, we thought. We were all wrong and the fight turned out exactly like we thought it would. Sure, he was in good shape, but he was not in fight shape. By that, I mean he wasn’t 30 years old.

Chuck spent his whole career taking 3 punches to try and give 1 back. It worked for a while until Rampage and then Rashad Evans melted the Iceman. Chuck was never the same after.

As for Tito, he’s having one of the best runs of his career, going 4-1 in his last 5. Granted, it’s not against the top ranked fighters, but he’s beating big names.

When the 2 fighters clashed last night, Tito started slow and was measuring Chuck’s timing. There was none to be measured and Tito knew he had him. He began talking to Chuck because he knew Chuck had nothing. Shortly after, Tito knocked Chuck out cold.

It was sad to see, but it is what it is.

Chuck Liddell says after Tito he has plans to have some revenge fights

chuck-liddell-tito-plans-revenge-fights

Chuck Liddell fights Tito Ortiz this weekend at Golden Boy MMA’s inaugural event. Chuck has received a lot of criticism for how he has looked in his training for the fight and most recently, by Tito Ortiz himself.

Liddell insists that he’s back to his old self. He says he is still fast, he hits hard, and he’s in shape. In fact, he is all but guaranteeing that he knocks Tito out.

Chuck also says that if all goes well in his fight with Tito that this is not the end. He named a few potential fights that he’d entertain after. The names he brought up were Vitor Belfort, Wanderlei Silva, and Rampage Jackson.

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, though. First up is Tito Ortiz this Saturday night.

Tito plans on crushing the Iceman then visiting the orange one

tito-crushing-iceman-visiting-orange-one

If you follow Tito Ortiz on social media then you know he is on board with Making America Great Again. Tito was a contestant on The Apprentice and became friends with our current president. He’s all about Donald Trump and if he is victorious over Chuck Liddell, he wants to celebrate by visiting the White House.

In their previous two fights, Tito seemed to be mentally defeated before both fights. For this next one, Tito is supremely confident that he’s going to be doing the ‘Gravedigger’ once again. He ‘KNOWS’ that he is winning this fight against Chuck and that is a huge motivator.

Tito promises that this is truly his retirement fight and he looks to be training like it is.

Making Tito Great Again

Tito and Chuck out here hyping their fight and saying which boy bands rock

Tito-Chuck-hyping-fight-boy-bands-rock

Leave it to the mainstream media to ask a couple of MMA legends which of history’s boy bands rock the most. The answer to that is ‘none’ by the way. Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell made their way on to FOX 11 in Los Angeles to promote their fight later this month and the guys said some nice things and some not-so-nice things about each other.

The narrative for this fight is different for each guy. For Chuck, it seems like he is going into this wanting to prove that ‘old guys rule’. There have been many videos leaked to the public of Chuck hitting pads and it really looks like age has caught up with him. Chuck insists that it’s not true and he is ready to put Tito Ortiz down once again.

As for Tito, he is looking for the elusive first win over the Iceman. While Chuck is focusing on trying to defy father time, Tito is looking for some good old fashion revenge.

The two rivals ended their interview with nice things to say about the other. Chuck was very impressed with how good Tito is with his children and Tito thinks that Chuck rocks a mohawk like a boss.

Chuck Liddell is at it again. Manages to maim Steve-O somehow.

chuck-liddell-manages-maim-steve-somehow

Steve-O has become Chuck Liddell’s whipping boy over the past year. Whether it’s getting knocked out or choked unconscious, Steve-O is on the receiving end of a lousy time, early and often. This time around, Chuck manages to maim Steve-O and it’s pretty disgusting. I mean, it’s REALLY disgusting. Steve-O apparently wanted to give himself … Read moreChuck Liddell is at it again.

Chuck Liddell thinks the UFC should stop rewarding guys who act up

Chuck-Liddell-stop-rewarding

I tend to agree with Chuck Liddell when he is asked his stance on the post-fight fracas that went down between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor Mcgregor. The Iceman weighed in and felt the same way that many people felt. The UFC needs to stop rewarding fighters who cross the line.

Again, no one is saying what Khabib Nurmagomedov did was right. However, Conor McGregor’s actions leading up to their fight were so low that it’s understandable why Khabib did what he did.

A lot of what we are seeing in the UFC is favoritism of popular fighters. Conor McGregor and Jon Jones have habitually crossed the line and both are able to fight right now. If there are no consequences for their actions MMA will keep spiraling downward.

As Chuck preps for his return fight against Tito Ortiz, he’s still keeping this MMA thing in perspective.

Liddell golfing with Steve-O. Sorry, I meant, Liddell golfing ON Steve-O

Liddell-golfing-Sorry-meant

Chuck Liddell has become BFF’s with former Jackass star, Steve-O. It makes sense, really. Steve-O likes getting smashed on and Liddell loves to dish out beatings. The two are a match made in heaven. Chuck and Steve-O decided to step it up a notch and take the brutality (and stupidity) to a new level. Chuck golfing sounds like a bad idea. Chuck golfing off of Steve-O’s head… What’s the worst that could happen.

I know the answer to that and it is, ‘A lot’. Chuck swings a golf club like Cro-Magnon man picking up chicks. He just recklessly swings the club and has no real technique at all.

Of course, this is what makes Chuck hitting golf balls off of Steve-O’s head so intriguing. I mean; Where’s the fun in hitting balls off of a guy’s ear if you don’t smash it like a bull in a china shop?

Swing away, Chuck.

Trainwreck of bloopers from the Liddell vs Ortiz presser

trainwreck-bloopers-liddell-ortiz-presser

Tito Ortiz vs Chuck Liddell 3 can be considered a trainwreck in MMA. Two older gents rehashing their rivalry for a payday is often frowned upon by MMA fans. However, people will bu the PPV and this fight is actually happening. They had a presser last week and there were some verbal bloopers, but these new ones are on a totally different level of awesome.

Tito Ortiz, in particular, said some things that just blows the mind. here are a couple of gems.

“All I see is a shell of a man. An old shell of a man. On November 24th the millions will be able to watch, me standing over your face, as I bury you. As I rest of my last opponent did.”

“Jealous of him? This guy can’t even put a f****** sentence together, man. Are you kidding me right now? He’s reaching for those grapes. He’s trying to make his wine and the wine is already sounding like a violin with that cheese and wine.”

It’s ths kind of terrible trash talk that makes me love Tito that much more. God bless our sport.

Things got just a bit heated at the first Liddell vs Ortiz presser.

things-bit-heated-first-liddell-ortiz-presser

Things got pretty heated during and after the press conference between Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell. While both fighters revealed their intent to do great bodily harm to the other, there was a very nervous energy in the air between both legends.

Both Chuck and Tito seemed to have a hard time getting the right words out to fully express their disdain for the other one. While Tito was braggadocious about how he’s in great shape and just recently fought, Chuck had a message that age is just a number.

In their previous two fights, Liddell had his hand raised both times. Tito is looking to exact his revenge in the trilogy fight with Chuck and he looks supremely confident.

Of course, the legends faced off and things became very tense. Nobody knows how to get under Chuck’s skin like Tito does and it showed. Both guys look ready to go right now!
