Tito Ortiz dodged defending his light heavyweight championship from the true number one contender at the time in Chuck Liddell.

Wrong. This is Tito Ortiz, man. After UFC 51 during Ortiz’s post fight victory interview he damn near incited a riot when he called out and confronted first Ken Shamrock and then Chuck Liddell. Check it out to get hyped for tonight’s Liddell vs Ortiz 3.

They both stand to make a lot of money if the PPV does well this Saturday – IF. Bellator or ONE would be able to guarantee the big money no matter the buy rates but Golden Boy is making its first foray in to the MMA business which makes a good paycheck a ‘gamble’ for him. He had a lot more to say to MMAFighting about Tito’s heckling and claims of having a mole in Chuck’s camp. Check it out.

Who in the world would pick on Ben Askren? We will admit that we think Ben was unfairly judged by Dana White and that it was easy for everyone in the UFC who wanted to trash talk, call him out because there was zero chance there would be a real chance to take him on. Now that he’s finally in the UFC the callouts haven’t been as plentiful. It’s put up or shut up time. Here’s why Chael P Sonnen thinks Ben is calling the world out for his first UFC bout. Check it out.
