Watch Tito Ortiz knockout Chuck Liddell

MMA world in shock over brutal KO of 48-year-old

Fighting under the Golden Boy MMA banner, Tito Ortiz looked superior to Chuck Liddell in every aspect of their trilogy.

While in the UFC, Liddell topped Ortiz twice, but this time around, the long time off hindered "The Iceman" in the meeting of former UFC champions and hall of famers.

The 43-year-old Ortiz quickly noticed this and soon visibly grew in confidence, leading to the fight ending sequence in the final minute of the round in which he unleashed a series of punches, with a right hand connecting flush to the face of his foe, sending him falling to the canvas in a heap. Ortiz lost to Liddell via knockout in 2004 and '06, in a rivalry that helped build the sport.

Tito Ortiz was finally able to exact some revenge on long time nemesis and fellow MMA legend Chuck Liddell on Saturday night in Los Angeles. You gave me an opportunity to show my skills and start this great thing we are going with Golden Boy MMA.

A series of whale strandings occurred over the weekend in New Zealand, but the incidents are so far thought to be unrelated. DOC has notified Ngāi Tahu of the Mason Bay stranding and is working with the iwi on what to do next.


"I want to thank all my fans!" You're not taking eight years off, coming back in my cage and trying to stop me. "I did it tonight by stopping Chuck Liddell, like I said I would". You made me work super hard.

"I came back and got in great shape", Liddell said. Chuck, thank you. You pushed me hard, dude. I don't think it was my best showing, but I got in shape.

As for those previous comments from Liddell, Jon Jones claims that he will never again respond to a callout from the Iceman following Saturday night's loss. I have no excuses. He has long maintained he and Liddell (21-9) were close friends when the UFC and Liddell made a decision to break the friendship and promote a title fight between them.
