Fight of the Week: Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz

October 27, 2014

There are no better examples of longevity and achieving your potential in MMA as you get with Nick Diaz and Robbie Lawler. Who knew when they first fought at UFC 47 in 2004 that these two fighters at the bottom of the main card of a Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz superfight would become MMA royalty?

 

 

Even though Nick shut off Robbie’s lights in the second round on a mean counter punch, both fighters showed that they were the most exciting young fighters around with their big attitudes and gritty styles. You could see that they were both destined for greatness.

 

In the coming months, Nick Diaz is set to fight Anderson Silva and Robbie Lawler will battle Johny Hendricks for the welterweight title. 10 years later, these guys are still main-eventing superfights and making it clear that they are true MMA royalty.
