From the sounds of it, Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell will in fact fight for a third time. Speaking on Submission Radio this week, Ortiz divulged that he’s in shape, and that he’s just waiting for Liddell to sign his contract.

 

“I’ve bounced back faster than I expected, which is great,” Ortiz said (transcribed by Jim Edwards for MMANytt). “But I feel good, man, I’m anxious. I’m just waiting on Chuck Liddell’s side to kind of sign the contract, get this done. So, it’s just a matter of time.”

 

If this fight does happen, it will be the first effort from Golden Boy MMA — a new MMA promotion helmed by retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya. Apparently, Ortiz and Liddell stand to make a good chunk of money in this fight.

 

Ortiz shared the pertinent details of his and Liddell’s deals:

 

“I think Chuck’s kind of holding out, trying to make more money out of it, which it just doesn’t make sense because this deal is pretty much a cut and dry contract,” Ortiz said.

 

“We’re both partners. De La Hoya wants his 40 percent and me and Chuck Liddell get to split 30 percent. So that’s on complete revenue of the whole fight in general. And this is the whole thing that I’ve been waiting for such a long time in mixed martial arts, to really make a difference, and we’re gonna do that with De La Hoya and Golden Boy Promotions.”

 

“We’re able to make a big percentage of the revenue with pay-per-view, the gate, merchandising, sponsorship – something that no MMA event has ever done before, and we’re gonna make it happen.”

 

Ortiz then clarified once and for all that, yes, the fight is happening:

 

“It’s gonna happen,” he said.” This fight is gonna happen. It’s just a matter of time. Chuck Liddell, come on, buddy, stop asking for pennies, man. You’re stepping over dollars, looking for pennies. Let’s sign this fight, let’s get it done so that we can give all the fans 25 years of UFC.”

 

 

 

Do you think the fight is going to happen?

Who wins if it does?

My money is on the fight never happening or having to be outside the U.S because no commission is going to license a 50-year-old, coke addict with a laundry list of known concussions.

Pointless fight.

 

Tito STILL trying to make bank from Chuck. I assume this is because Chuck is old af and been ko'ed multiple times making Tito's confidence at an all time high. 

 

Pass, Chuck already dusted him, twice.

Tito Ortiz

 

“I talked to some of the guys like Sean Shelby, some of the other promoters, and they said, ‘you guys have a possibility of doing some really great numbers because people don’t know what to expect,’” Ortiz said about his expectations for the fight’s pay-per-view buys. “So what’s the magic number? Is it over 500,000? Will we meet that million number that we did last time me and Chuck fought? You know, we did over 1.4 million pay-per-view buys. If we fall right in the middle of that, I would be happy.”

 

 

 

For context, the stacked UFC 225 card is reported to have done something in the region of 250,000 buys.

Oh chit.

 

Tito is saying they are talking to other "named" fighters to fight on this card.

 

Bring on the retirement bunch that BellaGOAT didn't want.

Vitor will be calling and begging the UFC to let him go

Why would he have to do that? The Machida fight was the last on his contract.

What makes you think that he is?

 

If a net worth of 14 million dollars is broke I would love to be broke.

First, random net worth figures online are all speculation.  Neither you nor I have any clue the actual state of Chuck's finances.  

 

Second, after NewFC cuts off his "I'm getting paid to be Dana's friend" income he suddenly comes out wanting to fight after being a ghost for years?  Maybe it's all a big coincidence.  Chuck has everything to lose in this fight.  Seems like a decision based on financial need.  

 

Third, is it really hard to believe that someone that loves that party lifestyle may be overextended financially after losing what they thought would be life long extra income?  

 

Fourth, I'm not alone in thinking this.

Yeah you're just another retarded Tito fan and I guess Tito is broke as well.

 

You realize he's married with young children, right?  He did party hard as a fighter but he's moved on.

 

Let's say he and Tito are both only worth one third of their 2018 reported net worths... they're still worth 5 million which is hardly broke.  If you think both men don't have revenue streams outside of fighting you're as bad as the deluded casual that said BJ Penn was fighting for a check in his last 6 fights.  BJ is rich as ****.

I watched a recent interview with Chuck, it’s the first time I heard him talk since he retired and he can actually put together a sentence now.

 

I hope he doesn’t get sparked out ffs.

Oh the irony... the dude that dodged Chuck for years because he was scared and wanted more money to take a beating is telling Chuck not to step over dollars looking for pennies.

 

Tito operates on Vert's level.

You think Tito's net worth is accurate?  He just came out of retirement for the 4th time... he must be sweating his finances like a nagger on a rape charge.
