As Tito Ortiz prepares for what might be the biggest fight in his UFC career, against Matt Hamill this weekend at UFC 121 in Anaheim, Calif., fans are still clamoring for a fight that was set up to be the main event of UFC 115 between him and longtime rival Chuck Liddell.

Coming off of neck surgery and dropping out of the June fight with Liddell, Ortiz needs a strong performance against Hamill to maintain his career at the star level he's built up over the years, but there's still that looming question of a third fight with the former UFC light heavyweight champion.

On the most recent episode of “The Ultimate Fighter," Liddell stopped by to see the newest participants on the show and of course the questions immediately came up about seeing him face Ortiz at some point down the road.

You gotta believe he's being genuine here. Tito/Chuck 3 would prove nothing.

Agreed. It's not like there's any score to settle. Chuck's up 2-0.

i know theres nothing left to prove, but its a fight that some fans were amped up for, and its one of the few fights out there for chuck where youd think he would be safe from suffering another KO. id like to see it happen just so chuck has a chance to go out on a high note, but a win might make him think he was ready to climb the ladder again and a loss would devastate him on a personal level i would guess.

I am not surprised by this, but I'm also taking it with a grain of salt because Dana has said many things before in the past. I believe it....for now. Won't be shocked if he's singing a different tune in 6 months.

Everyone wants to see Tito get his ass kicked again- but let's talk about the elephant in the room here-

What happens if Tito KO's Chuck because of the fact that Chuck is so chinny these days?

Yep.

CHUCK: "I want one more crack at that ********...I ain't goin' out like that."

TITO: "I told you all along. Had I been healthy for the first 2 fights, blah blah blah blah blah...bring on 1 more!"

Never is a very nebulous term with Dana

I'd hate to see Ortiz end up knocking out Liddell. He already runs his mouth enough without any wins so to come back and knock Liddell out would be horrible.

I really wish Dana wouldn't make statements like that. We all understand it but I know I wouldn't want my close friend or brothersaying things like that about me publically.

I don't want Chuck to fight anyone. I want him to coach or do something besides getting in the cage. All we know from Chucks last fights is: if he gets touched on the chin his lights are out. Ilove the guy, but he's done.

Yeah right. Zuffa will put together the fights that make the most sense from a business perspective, if that includes tito/chuck 3, they will make the fight.

Now there might well be a business reason why chuck/tito 3 isn't desirable... aka if the fight doesn't do as well as the last one it could be seen as a sign of diminished public interest to investors.
