It was surreal to see two MMA legends and rivals like Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz step into the cage one more time after all these years. At 48-years-old and after an eight-year retirement, Liddell looked confident and in great shape. But once the fight started he looked slow and a shell of his former self. Ortiz took his time, picked his shots and once he realized he had Chuck’s number he poured it on and stopped “The Iceman” at 4:24 of round number one. Here’s how it ended.
