What was the greatest feud in the history of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC)?
Regardless of your answer, Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz will undoubtedly make your Top 5, and there’s an argument that modern-day mixed martial arts (MMA) simply wouldn’t be what it is without “The Iceman” warring with “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy.”
That’s one of many reasons why ESPN is featuring their longstanding feud in an upcoming edition of “30 for 30.” I’m not sure what new ground there is to cover, but ESPN is now in bed with UFC and this is the sort of thing we should expect.
Take a look:
Liddell and Ortiz finished their trilogy under the Golden Boy MMA banner since UFC President, Dana White, refused to participate in anything that had “The Iceman” at risk for further punishment. That, and he just doesn’t like Ortiz.
Turns out he was making the right call, as Liddell came out and got buried by his longtime rival in a performance that had many combat sports fans crying foul. Hopefully some of that gets covered in “30 for 30.”
