Tito Ortiz managed to close out the long and storied rivalry he shared with Chuck Liddell with a first-round KO in their third and final matchup last night.

This loss means Liddell has now lost four in a row, all coming by early knockouts.

Had he proved victorious on Saturday night, Liddell had shown interest in a fight with current pound-for-pound great Jon Jones. Chuck, thank you. You pushed me hard, dude. "I did it tonight by stopping Chuck Liddell, like I said I would".

Ortiz had said prior to this card that his trilogy with Liddell would be the last time he stepped inside the cage. You made me work super hard. I was so happy to get inside the ring. "You're a f-ing true champion, bud". I made a mistake and it is what it is.

“Im going to have to sit back and really think about whats next.”.

Ortiz, of Huntington Beach, California, buried the hatchet with Liddell immediately after the bout, and even encouraged him to fight again.
