It’s almost decision time for fight fans. The trilogy fight most of us stopped asking for a decade ago is almost upon us.

This Saturday night in Inglewood, Calif., Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz will square off for the third time when Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions makes its first foray into the world of MMA.

And yeah, they’re selling this thing on pay-per-view – and the fighters themselves are reportedly depending heavily on good sales figures to make this worth their while.

Should you buy it? Should you try to find some means of watching it without paying for it? Should you ignore it altogether?

To answer these questions, maybe we need to start by asking and answering some others.

Liddell looks so unbelievably horrible in the footage I’ve seen of him hitting pads or the heavy bag.

Not buying it. I was on the fence when it was announced. After seeing Chuck's footage, I do not want anything to do with this spectacle. It pains me to think about the brain damage these two do not need to endure anymore, yet they are.

Chuck losing his train of thought mid-interview

Tito talks about training, err how often??

No f'n way I would ever consider paying money to see this fight.
...and after watching the last Press Conference for this event, I'm convinced the card should be renamed as "MMA Privileges Day at the Old Folks Home".
Seriously...such a bad idea.
Yes, I'm interested to see who wins between Chuck and Tito...but I wish it weren't happening.
If it were a rubber match, then maybe I'd feel better about it...but it's not.
Hell...even several years back when this fight was supposed to happen as a TUF finale, I thought it was stupid.

The thing that really sucks about this fight is that if Tito wins(which I think he will)....Then it's only gonna encourage another bout between them. ..and if Tito wins that other stupid fight, then it'll be 2-2...which will mean another f'n retarded fight which will be the rubber match.

This is why I didn't want this fight to happen.
...and this is why I hope Chuck sleeps Tito. ...just so we don't have see any more Chuck Ortiz fights ever again.

In a fantasy world, would I love to see Chuck make a sick run as the ultimate GOAT? Hell f'n yes. But we're on planet Earth right now. Age happens. Paper chins form. Such is life.
