This Saturday night all sports fans are invited to UFC 66: LIDDELL vs.ORTIZ party at CHAMPPS Aspen Grove hosted by RING OF FIRE.
In his tenure as UFC World Light Heavyweight Champion, Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell has sent legend, Randy Couture into retirement, avenged a defeat (Jeremy Horn), and annihilated his number one challenger (Renato Sobral). But when the man standing across the Octagon from Liddell is his former training partner and friend Tito Ortiz, all bets are off. When these two 205-pound stalwarts collide on December 30, the New Year’s Eve fireworks are going to begin one day early this year.
“The fans demanded it, the fighters demanded it, and I’m excited to finally announce the rematch between Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz,” said UFC President Dana White. “A lot has changed since Liddell and Ortiz first fought in 2004, and not only in the Octagon, where both fighters have looked unbeatable in compiling a combined 10-0 record. These are two fighters who went from being MMA standouts to becoming worldwide superstars in the space of two years, and I can’t think of any fight anywhere in the world that has more heat behind it than this one. I have no doubt that this will be the most watched UFC pay-per-view of all-time.”
“I’ll fight whoever the UFC puts in front of me,” said Liddell. “They decided it’s time for a rematch with Ortiz. I’ll knock him out just like I did last time, except this time I’ll probably do it in the first round. It’ll be fun beating him up again.”
“I see Liddell putting up a good fight, but at the end of the night, it will be my hand raised in the Octagon,” said Ortiz. “I can’t wait to get my belt back.”
