At 48 years of age, one would think former Ultimate Fighting Championshiphall of famer Chuck Liddell would be enjoying retirement. However, Liddell got the itch to compete again and has decided to face-off in a trilogy fight against one of his biggest rivals in Tito Ortiz who he meets this Saturday night inside The Forum in Inglewood, California under Golden Boy Promotions which is owned by former professional boxer Oscar De La Hoya.
However, unlike the 43-year-old Ortiz, who has explicitly stated that he plans for this to be his last fight, this may not be a one-off for Liddell, who has plans on fighting a number of other veterans as part of his comeback.
“The Iceman” recently spoke to TMZ and said that depending on how he performs against Ortiz this weekend, he’d like to face-off with a number of other veterans, including a trilogy fight with Quinton Jackson.
“If I perform the way I think I’m going to on Saturday then I’m definitely going to be looking for another fight after this. There’s a lot of guys. [Chael] Sonnen’s been running his mouth, there’s always ‘Rampage’ still in it. Wanderlei [Silva] is still in it, Vitor [Belfort] has been talking about it, so we got a lot of guys out there who are possibilities.”
