More than 14 years after their first fight and 12 years past their rematch, Ortiz finished Liddell with a brutal first round knockout in their trilogy showdown at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif. on Saturday night.

Ortiz seemed pretty elated to finally get one over on his longtime foe but all in all, seeing a 43-year-old defeat a 48-year-old was exactly as unusual a spectacle as you would expect.

The former UFC champs fought in 2004 and 2006, and Liddell stopped his fellow star in both scraps.

Hear everything Chuck Liddell had to say at the Liddell vs Ortiz 3 post-fight press conference.

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.

That's when Ortiz blasted "The lceman" with a right hand to the chin and Liddell's eyes rolled back as he crumbled to the canvas.


“Woooooo! I want to shout out to my son Jacob who I talked to on the phone – to my son Jesse, Jr. too I want you to know that dad loves you!

".@JonnyBones I told you I would take care of your light work!" "I got out there and I got caught". "I did it tonight by stopping Chuck Liddell, like I said I would". Thank you, you pushed me hard, man. I made a mistake.

At 48 years old, Liddell has not won a fight since 2007. I don't think it was my best showing for sure.

"We're going to have to sit back and think about it".

Ortiz, of Huntington Beach, California, buried the hatchet with Liddell immediately after the bout, and even encouraged him to fight again.
