Tito Ortiz vs. Chuck Liddell To Headline UFC 115
Posted by Dustin James on 04.08.2010
UFC president Dana White recently sat down with Joe Ferraro on Sportsnet's MMA Connected and once again confirmed that Chuck Liddell will face Tito Ortiz in the main event of UFC 115 in Vancouver, British Columbia on June 12:
"Absolutely, the definite main event is Tito vs. Chuck Liddell. That's definitely the main event."
While there have recently been conflicting reports regarding the health of Tito Ortiz, White insists that both fighters are healthy and the two "Ultimate Fighter" coaches will indeed fight in two months time.
This whole thing started when Ortiz went on his Twitter account a few weeks back and hinted at a possible injury that could force him out of his third bout with Liddell. That's when multiple websites started reporting that Rich Franklin was going to replace Ortiz both on "TUF" and in the main event of UFC 115, a report in which Dana White refutes to this day.
Here is the current rumored card for UFC 115:
- Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz
- Thiago Alves vs. Jon Fitch
- Pat Barry vs. Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic
- Evan Dunham vs. Tyson Griffin
- Paulo Thiago vs. Martin Kampmann
- Gilbert Yvel vs. Ben Rothwell
- Mac Danzig vs. Matt Wiman
- Carlos Condit vs. Rory MacDonald
- James Wilks vs. Peter Sobotta
- Mike Pyle vs. Jesse Lennox
- Claude Patrick vs. To Be Announced
