Former UFC light heavyweight champions Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell formed one of the UFC’s greatest rivalries during their fighting careers. While both former title holders have since retired, Ortiz is now voicing an interest in forming a trilogy rematch against “The Iceman.”
Speaking to TMZ Sports, Ortiz explained that he has great interest in meeting Liddell inside the cage.
“Well I have a lot of interest, actually. On New Years I asked the match maker of the UFC if they want to do a Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz three and he kind of looked at me and laughed. He said ‘Chuck couldn’t pass to fight again. He’s been knocked out unconscious five times and I guarantee the doctor won’t give him a licence.”
“So, it’s up to them.”

Ortiz has since also taken to social media to get the word out that he wants to fight Liddell. Responding to a fan, the former fighter stated:
“Let’s go!!!!! The fans deserve it! Just for fun. @UFC”
