Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz face off against each other for a third and probably final time in November under the Golden Boy banner unless this bout lands more than a million PPV buys and money starts flowing. The press conference was a pretty standard affair with Chuck being his normal confident self and Tito acting as cocky as he could – despite losing their first two. Oscar De La Hoya seems genuinely excited about bringing this fight to life and truly believes in it. We don’t blame him because these two could probably fight at 80 and alot of people would watch them go at it. Check out the full press conference and let us know in the comments if you will be watching this.

In this edition of MMA Flashback we travel back in time to 2002 when a young Canadian fighter by the name of Georges St. Pierre makes his professional debut against the undefeated welterweight Ivan Menjivar. Menjivar, whose nickname is “Pride of El Salvadar,” was 4-0 when he fought St. Pierre at UCC 7 in Montreal. Menjivar came into the fight a couple of pounds over weight and had to forfeit 20% of his purse to St. Pierre.
Although just an inkling of the fighter he is today, UFC fans will surely notice the athleticism and the seeds of greatness St. Pierre already possessed. The referee makes a big mistake and stops the fight early near the end of the first round, but it is still an entertaining and important fight within the history of the sport.
