Tito Ortiz will take to the Octagon in 2012 in what will be his final fight before retirement. In a largely circulated interview with MiddleEasy Tito stated:
July, hopefully Fourth of July weekend I will be fighting my last fight and I will be done. That's it: It's time to walk away. You know, Forrest, or I know everybody would like to see me against Chuck (Liddell) and, I don't know. We will see what Lorenzo and Dana have to offer and see what they want to do. I'll sit down with Lorenzo and Dana next week and let's see, let's make a fight, my last fight and let's make a memorable one.
The general consensus, to my surprise, were fans of Chuck's saying they'd love to see him beat Tito for a third time. My initial reaction as a fan was disgust. What has Tito done to warrant a third fight with Chuck? Furthermore, Chuck has beaten Tito badly in both fights. Why would Chuck risk giving Tito the satisfaction of ending his career with a win?
For fans of Chuck Liddell who are concerned about him taking the bait and asking to get in the Octagon one last time with Tito, don't worry, this fight will not happen, and here are five reasons why.
