Tito Ortiz Willing To Postpone Retirement To ‘Kick Chael Sonnen’s Ass Again’

Tito Ortiz appeared to retire following his knockout victory against Chuck Liddell at Golden Boy MMA: Liddell vs. Ortiz 3 last month, claiming that he was “done” with MMA. Now, it seems he might have left one task undone.

Should Chuck Liddell Fight Again or Nah?

Legendary UFC fighter Chuck Liddell – oh ye of the iron chin and knockout punch – was forced to retire a few years back because he kept taking naps on the Octagon floor.

But this past weekend, he was coaxed out of retirement to clash with longtime rival Tito Ortiz at Golden Boy MMA. And though “The Iceman” beat Ortiz soundly a dozen years ago, things didn’t go so smoothly this time around. Yes, Liddell wound up napping yet again.

It was so sad, in fact, that I daresay there’s a single MMA fan out there that would want to see the Iceman fight again.

Of course, Liddell being Liddell (i.e., a man who’s only known fighting all his life), he refuses to rule out another bout somewhere down the line.

It’s easy to glamorize combat, but it’s much hard to accept the very real toll it takes on our favorite athletes. And with Liddell, it’s easy to see what that toll exacted. He’s a walking CTE bomb waiting to happen.

Should he fight again? Hell no! Will he? I hope not.

And if you have any morals, you should hope that, too.

Domestic Violence Rears Its Ugly Head Yet Again, Likely Nixing UFC Fight

Paige VanZant was supposed to face Rachel Ostovich at UFC on ESPN+1 in January, but that fight might not be happening.

As per TMZ Sports, Ostovich had to go to the hospital with a possible broken orbital bone courtesy of some domestic violence.

Sadly, Ostovich isn’t the only female fighter on the UFC roster to have to deal with this crap. Andrea Lee had trouble in August with her man.

Anyway, here’s TMZ Sports:

UFC fighter Rachael Ostovich — who was scheduled to fight Paige VanZant in January — was attacked in Hawaii and sources tell us it was so serious, she’s being hospitalized for major injuries.

Multiple sources tell TMZ Sports … Ostovich was in Honolulu when the incident took place. Our sources tell us she’s believed to have suffered a broken orbital bone.

We’re told Ostovich’s attacker is someone close to her.

If Ostovich did, in fact, suffer a broken bone in her face, it would almost certainly mean her January 19 fight with Paige VanZant at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn would be off.
