Fighting under the Golden Boy MMA banner, Tito Ortiz looked superior to Chuck Liddell in every aspect of their trilogy.

Twelve years after his second loss to Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz was finally able to defeat his long time rival on Saturday evening.

It was a result for which Ortiz, 43, had waited years.

Despite the years of hatred between them which helped fuel a pair of high-profile bouts more than a decade ago, which played a pivotal role in UFC's growth, the two rivals embraced inside the cage after the fight.

The fight started off slow, but after four minutes Ortiz dropped Liddell with a right-hand blow.

With that being said, the finish that came during the main-event of last night's Golden Boy MMA debut left something of an empty feeling in the hearts of those who watched it.

The biggest obstacle to the Brexit accord overall is the vehement opposition in the British parliament. DUP leader Arlene Foster said: "We will vote against it if its brought to parliament".

That's when Ortiz blasted "The lceman" with a right hand to the chin and Liddell's eyes rolled back as he crumbled to the canvas. "I did it tonight by stopping Chuck Liddell, like I said I would".

".@JonnyBones I told you I would take care of your light work!" Thank you, you pushed me hard, man.

"I came back and got in great shape", Liddell said. I wanted to give my best performance but I came short.”.

"We're going to have to sit back and think about it".

As for Liddell, it was hard enough seeing him compete on Saturday night and it would be even tougher to imagine a scenario where he fights again following the loss to Ortiz in their third and seemingly final confrontation. I don't know, I don't know what I'm going to do.
