Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz are meeting for the third time on 24 November at The Forum in Inglewood, California, in a pay-per-view event promoted under Golden Boy Promotions and Tito Ortiz has expressed what he will do after the fight.
Tito Ortiz in an interview with MMAFighting.com said after this fight he will enter fight promotion business and want to build up stars like Conor McGregor. “It’s just one of things where if we can build and mold fighters the right way, we can make Tito Ortiz, Chuck Liddell, Randy Couture, Quinton ‘, Rampage’ Jackson, Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller, Phil Baroni,” said Tito.
Praising Conor McGregor, Tito said he wants to build guys like the way Conor is and wants to give them back a piece of the revenue. “You look at Conor McGregor, one of the best ever. I will give him, hands down, he is the best trash talker ever aside from Muhammad Ali; that kid is on fire. That kid knows what he’s doing.“
Ortiz then added, “Not only just the pay-per-view but merchandise. Not only the merchandising but the gate. Not only the gate but sponsorships, where they’re not only having one sponsor, Reebok. It is whatever sponsor they choose. They’re able to pick their own personality, their own character.“
