Chuck Liddell Hopes to Keep Fighting After Trilogy With Tito Ortiz, Names Several Possible Opponents
By FCF Staff
Chuck Liddell may be 48-years-old, but the legendary fighter hopes to keep fighting after he faces Tito Ortiz for a third time tonight.
Liddell is returning to the cage tonight, for the first time since 2010, to face Ortiz in the main event of a Golden Boy Promotions card. Recently TMZ caught up with Liddell, and while discussing whether he plans to keep fighting after tonight, the former UFC champ stated (quotes via MMA Mania):
“If I perform the way I think I’m going to on Saturday then I’m definitely going to be looking for another fight after this,” Liddell said. “There’s a lot of guys. (Chael) Sonnen’s been running his mouth, there’s always ‘Rampage’ (Jackson) still in it. Wanderlei (Silva) is still in it, Vitor (Belfort) has been talking about it, so we got a lot of guys out there who are possibilities.”
Liddell fought Ortiz in 2004 and 2006, at UFC 47 and 66 respectively, and stopped the star in both fights.
