Tito Ortiz wants Forrest or Chuck

Tito Ortiz somehow made it through the post-UFC 140 media scrum without Dana White basically retiring him in the press, so now it’s time to drum up some support for that ‘one last fight’ he was talking about after his loss to Lil Nog. Here’s what he’s thinking:

“Hopefully the July 4 weekend I’ll be fighting my last fight and I’ll be done, that’s it – time to walk away,” said Ortiz, in a recent interview with MiddleEasy.com. “Forrest (Griffin is possible), I know everybody would love to see me against Chuck – we’ll see what (UFC president) Dana (White) has to offer. Let’s make my last fight a memorable one.”

I must be crazy, but I would actually kinda sorta love seeing Chuck Liddell come out of retirement to slap Tito Ortiz around. There was already a big stupid season of TUF revolving around it, and it’s not like ‘retirement’ is some sort of real impediment. Chuck just needs to hit the naked treadmill and watch the beergut and we’re good to go. Sadly enough, I don’t see this happening, if only because Dana White spent over a year convincing Chuck to quit and he probably doesn’t want to have to do that again.

    It’s been a while so we may have forgotten, but…THIS IS WHAT AN IN SHAPE, ACTIVE CHUCK LIDDELL LOOKED LIKE FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS OF HIS CAREER.

     

    Imagine how an out-of-shape, beyond rusty Liddell would fair in the cage?

    Tito KO’d Ryan Bader while Chuck was settling into the second year of his retirement. Busted or not, Tito’s the younger, faster and far more active fighter (even at the end of his career). Ortiz is at the end of the line, but Chuck is fucking cremated dust at this point. Getting KO’d by Tito would ruin an amazing career legacy (that already went on too long) and while winning would be impressive, it would only convince Chuck that he still has gas left in the tank. That would almost be sadder than an Ortiz win.

     Yeah calling a guy out after he has retired sounds like Tito. He is a douche right til the end. HE probably thinks it would be the perfect way to cap off his so called legacy. I wouldn’t be surprised if Chuck accepts and Dana throws a wrench it.

    I had almost forgot why it was so satisfying watching Rog beat this bitch into the ground.

    Thanks for opening your mouth you dumb prick.

    No mas, Tito.

    It was (almost) okay when he was just losing decisions but this is too much. He’s done. It’s over. That shot he dropped Bader with was a fluke.

    So I don’t care who it’s against (and Chuck certainly shouldn’t come out of retirement), I’m not interested.

  • glassjawsh

    I’ve been as big of a Tito mark as anyone the last 5 years…

    but just go away dude

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    I think Cheeto vs Thiago would be nice.

  • CAP

    I agree with MMAdam. Tito can get pretty damn annoying but he has earned a proper send off for all he’s done for them. A Griffin rematch wouldn’t be a bad match up. It may not be what it used to be but the names should attract the casuals. And the last one was kinda controversial.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Y’know, Cap convinced me; Cheeto’s a former champ, taught Wandy the value of a ground game, and entertained the hell outta me in his last fight and deserves a great send-off after years of entertainment. Give him Jon Jones.

  • fightlinker

    lol wouldn’t that be the best. A murderizing sendoff. Subo said this on the new podcast – that’s the natural flow of things – old stars NEED to be fed to up and comers so some of that stardom rubs off on em. Sad (for the guys getting destroyed) but necessary

  • CAP

    ^I feel that’s what they did with Lesnar. Dana knew he was bailing out so try and transfer the hype to Reem. They call it “passing the torch” when spandex is involved.

  • Giallo

    I hope Chuck comes out of retirement and fucks up his face..I don’t wanna see this idiot “acting” and shit, fucking ruining perfectly good movies by being an extra or something

  • Mixed Martial Adam

    I disagree, Tito is healthy enough for one more scrap (as long as it’s only one more). If he wants a farewell match that’s fair, he’s fucking earned it after 10+ years – but just not against Chuck.

    Forrest is looking to retire, Tito is retiring…why not have the two of them bang it out in a final match as an FX co-main event? It’s not really a fight anyone is clamoring for, but Ortiz should get a send off after all he’s done for the UFC and if Griffin’s game then I’d be up for watching it.

  • theinsaneoneJustinMcCully

    Rashad vs Chuck was pretty close to the first death in UFC.

  • Letibleu

    Just an idea: Tito vs Rampage. I know Page is fighting Bade in Feb but it could be cool

    Tito vs janitor would also be exciting. Both coming off losses and both about to retire.

     

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    I don’t think he’ll fight Rampage unless it’s for the title.

  • kwagnuth

     If they wanna pass the torch they should bring in King Mo for his final fight. The UFC will need another stupid Jackass who thinks he is entertaining but really is just an annoying prick. That way the Tito fans will still have someone to cheer for when he is gone.

  • iamphoenix

    you guys are all stupid to want to see tito fight. GRRR I’M ANGRYYY

  • Giallo

    I just wanna see him get fucking raped in the cage

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Jones.

  • Giallo

    Jones would probably kill the poor bastard

  • noiseless

    hahahahahah, hahahah!!

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Jones would probably kill the poor bastard

    Ok, so Giallo’s down for Jones too – anyone else?

    hahahahahah, hahahah!!

    I think we have another!

  • Giallo

    lol yeah fuck it why not, it’ll make sure he doesn’t pull a Couture and permanently stays retired
