Liddell Thinks UFC Docs Would Clear Him
Following Tito Ortiz’ call for a third fight against Chuck Liddell in the UFC, The “Iceman” responded on Wednesday and seems ready to step back into the octagon.
In an interview with TMZ Sports on Wednesday, Liddell responded to Ortiz and the former UFC light heavyweight champion only hopes Ortiz stays true to his word.
“That would be awesome,” said Liddell. “I hadn’t seen that. Somebody said something about it but I hadn’t seen it.
“I’ll believe it when I see it, when he actually signs the contract, and then I’ll believe it again when he actually shows up to the fight.”
Liddell says that’s just wishful thinking from Ortiz though and he would be shocked if he wasn’t sanctioned to fight again.
“I don’t know why I wouldn’t be,” said Liddell. “I’ve had medical exams for my mountain climbing show and I cleared with everything there so I should be just fine. We’ll have to see. If they don’t clear me, I’d be shocked. They’ve cleared a lot of people in a lot less shape than I am.”
Ortiz replied via Twitter, excited at the development and claiming “it begins!”
