Tito Ortiz vs Chuck Liddell 3? “The Iceman” is looking to return to MMA

It’s a no from Ortiz – But he’s willing to lend Liddell some money!

Chuck ‘The Iceman’ Liddell looks set to make a dramatic return to MMA.

Liddell met with Bellator President Scott Coker last week and since then the rumour mill has been turning. Liddell added more fuel to that fire by posting a photo on Instagram which showed Ortiz and himself engaging in a staredown with the caption “Why not?”

However, it appears as though ‘The Huntington Beach Badboy’ is not interested in the third meeting with Liddell, responding to the photo by tweeting “because I don’t need the money, I can lend you some cash”

 

The rivals first met UFC 47 back in 2004 with Liddell winning by TKO in the second round. They met for a second time at UFC 66 in 2006, where Liddell once again won by TKO, this time in the third.

Since his loss to Liddell at UFC 66, Ortiz went 1-6-1 before finally retiring in 2012. He made his MMA return in 2014, this time under the Bellator banner winning his return fight against Alexander Shlemenko via triangle choke in the first round. Ortiz has now gone 3-1 in Bellator with his last fight being a victory over Chael Sonnen at Bellator 170 in January of this year.

Chuck Liddell has gone 1-5 since he last met Ortiz in the Octagon with losses to the likes of Rampage Jackson, Keith Jardine, Rashad Evans, and Shogun Rua. He took part in the 2007 fight of the year in a hugely anticipated matchup with Wanderlei Silva, a fight which he won via unanimous decision. His last fight was at UFC 115 back in 2010, where he was knocked out by Rich FranklinLiddell retired shortly after on the advice of UFC President Dana White.
