Bellator CEO Scott Coker says he would be willing to book a trilogy fight between former UFC champions Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz.
Since losing his behind-the-scenes job with the UFC, Chuck Liddell has shown an interest in once again fighting. He has even had meetings with Coker regarding joining Bellator.
Liddell has recently gone to social media and called out his longtime rival Ortiz. However, Ortiz hasn’t shown any interest in fighting Liddell. Ortiz retired from the sport following his submission win over Chael Sonnen back in January.
In an interview with MMA Fighting, Coker talked about putting on a fight between the two MMA legends.
“If Tito wanted to do it, would I do it? I think I might do it,” Coker said. “To me, why not? If they all pass their medicals and their physicals. It’s a fight that I would love to see. But I think Tito is retired and we’re talking about hypotheticals that (probably) won’t happen.”
Liddell and Ortiz fought twice in the UFC. Liddell knocked out Ortiz back in 2004 at UFC 47. The two fought in a rematch at UFC 66 in 2006. Liddell went on to win by TKO. To this day, UFC 66 is one of the most successful UFC pay-per-view events in history.
