At a media day to promote the upcoming season of Spike TV’s “The Ultimate Fighter,” former UFC light heavyweight titleholder Tito Ortiz alleged that his longtime rival and fellow former champion Chuck Liddell was an “alcoholic.” He added that their former manager and now UFC president Dana White had to do “an intervention” on Liddell.

Following the UFC 109 pre-fight press conference on Thursday, White denied ever having done an intervention and said Liddell isn’t “too happy” about Ortiz’ comments.

I will make it clear now to anyone who post in here... accusing fighters of something without any proof will get you banned. Just because Tito said it was so doesn't make it fact. Tito is lucky he doesn't post in here because he would have been banned.

So, is everyone that TMZ shows drunk an alcoholic? Being intoxicated doesn't mean you're an alcoholic. I've watched my friends in similar situations and I'm sure i've been there a few times as well...none of us are alcoholics. TBH, I don't know whether he has/had an alcohol problem or not. So, what is it that you've seen that I haven't?

alright fine..i'll requote myself..liddell himself made it seem that he had a drinkin problem..you don't go on a show or a radio show sh*tface at 10/11 in the mornin and try to still do the interview..why the hell would you be drunk at that time,unless you're tailgating or durnin a special occasion..you don't try to choke someone out..when he asked kindly to have liddell put him in a choke hold for a picture..dude was a fan and liddell was what too f*cked to care and decided to try to beat him up..sorry..a causal drinkin doesn't do stuff like that..only an alcoholic does..that doesn't sit well in my book..you don't attack a fan,especially your own fan...

You've just described someone who's had too much to drink. I've seen plenty of crazy things happen over the years...most of which were done by casual and social drinkers. Alcohol does different things to different people...and in case you haven't heard, it also impairs your judgment as well. He may very well have a problem, but I'm not gonna pretend to diagnose someone by the 5 minutes of video I've seen of them.

Thereare some funny videos of Liddell lookin pretty messed up, doesn't mean he's an alchy but it does help Titos case.

The morning news interview is the most incriminating (can't remember the news station or when this happened). And my favorite is reaction from the Wand Tito fight, its just epic.

Wow. Don't ya just love it when people talk crap behind your back? Despite accusing someone of something as serious as alcoholism, how is it your place to tell the world? How is your business? Not cool Tito, not cool

If i remember correctly they had proof that chuck had pneumonia at the time and couldn't postpone the interview which he was being payed big by 300 to do

I'm big on not jumping off a fighter's bandwagon when they are in a rut, and tito is one of my all-time favorites. but even if chuck had a drinking problem, he obviously wouldn't want it public. pretty low move IMO

I Just see it as a low blow, true or not. It's funny how Tito just lays it out there like it's a concern of his, to make it seem less douchy. Would it be fair game for Liddell to refer to Tito's woman as an former c**kaholic? That's something Tito has to take into consideration when he throws the trash-talking rule book out the window.
