LIDDELL VS ORTIZ 3 PLAY-BY-PLAY:
Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz
Round 1 – Very surreal watching these two MMA legends enter the cage one more time. Something tells me this one will end in the first round. Chuck looks very confident and in great shape. But will that chin hold up if he gets touched? What year is this? Am I in a time warp? Tito showing the jab, misses a left hook. Lands a low kick. Chuck lands a left jab. Right hand cocked back. Right from Tito. Leg kick. Chuck looking slow. Tito with the jab. Tito misses a head kick. Liddell hits the mat after an exchange. He’s right back up. Nice jab from Tito backs Chuck up. Tito walking him down, takes a leg kick. Tito with a counter right. Tito stalking. He’s taunting Chuck, seems to think Chuck’s lost it. Left lead hook from Chuck. Tito smells blood. He stuns Chuck with a couple punches then finishes him off knocking him unconscious with a right hand on the chin. And as I had previously commented on a in an earlier article, Chuck’s chin is indeed gone. He should never fight again. That’s it. Dana White was right many years ago when he said he didn’t want to see Chuck fight again. There was a reason for that, to protect his friend. … Tito was very classy after the fight, thanked Chuck and called him a true champion.
OFFICIAL RESULT: Tito Ortiz def. Chuck Liddell by knockout (punches) – Rd 1, 4:24
