Did not enjoy the end of that fight. Feel for iceman. Legends should t go out like this. I wish it was a 3 round war that went to a decision #LiddellOritz3

That fight shouldn’t have even been sanctioned.. Chuck has to hang em up for good, Tito shouldn’t be advocating for him to continue after the way he looked tonight
