Tito Ortiz vs Chuck Liddell trilogy ended in a devastating KO of Chuck Liddell in the very first round.
UFC President Dana White who is a very good friend to Chuck Liddell never wanted the fight to happen and now when the fight is over, expressed his thoughts on the fight and Golden Boy MMA.
Dana White in a recent interview said, “Tito says, ‘Hey, you guys want to get paid, come on over to Golden Boy MMA. Are you kidding me? Hey, my brother, wait a couple months until this whole thing pans out. Everybody’s going to be suing everybody in a couple of months. There was no money made over there.“
Tito Ortiz replied all this in a recent post on Instagram. Mentioning Dana White, Tito wrote that he and Chuck were never compensated for what they did for the UFC.

.@DanaWhite – I appreciate everything you have done for the me & the sport, in my humble opinion I don’t feel Chuck & I were compensated correctly for all that we gave & sacrificed for the company. When you sold the company for over 4.5 billion dollars how much of that did Chuck and I get ? Nothing…. I’m trying to build something new and rewarding for the sport! This is not about you, it is not about me… I want it to be about the fighters & giving them the opportunity to share in all the rewards this business has to offer to where they don’t have to fight when they are 43 & 48. @GoldenBoyBoxing @UFC
Prior to this post, Tito in an interview has said, “I’m just thankful at the end of the day that I was there to perform the way I did, and I was able to shut Chuck up, and shut all the fans up. I was able to bask in the glory for the rest of my life because I’ve always wanted that redemption fight. I’ve always wanted the opportunity to show I’m the better fighter when I’m healthy.“
