Liddell vs. Ortiz III Rumoured For UFC 115 In Vancouver
According to MMACanada.net, Vancouver's "News1130 Radio" is reporting that a match between former UFC light heavyweight champions Chuck Liddell (21-7) and Tito Ortiz (15-7-1) may take place in Vancouver's GM Place at UFC 115 on June 12th.
The story has yet to be corroborated by anyone close to the dealings, but the timing makes sense given that the eleventh season of The Ultimate Fighter, which begins airing on March 3st on Spike TV, will just have ended around that time. The two legends, who have both coached previously on the show, will square of once their duties as coaches have been fulfilled.
They have met twice previously, at UFC 46 and UFC 66, with Liddell taking the TKO victory in both contests. Chances are there are thousands of B.C. MMA fans, who would love to see Chuck and Tito fight live, but given their recent results and the fact that this isn't even a true rubber match, many also likely hope that another major fight serves as the main event.
