Liddell suspended indefinitely, extraordinary fight career likely at a conclusion

Wednesday, November 28, 2018

When Chuck Liddell was first licensed for a fight vs. Tito Ortiz, the oddsmakers had it about even. Then clips emerged on the social network of Liddell looking remarkably diminished in training. However, some fighters hold back in public workouts and Liddell noted he was tired or hadn't warmed up.

Then they fought on Nov. 24 at The Forum in Inglewood, California, and it was apparent Chuck Liddell should not fight anymore. And now it appears as if he may not - Liddell has been suspended indefinitely by the California State Athletic Commission. That suspension and others appear below:
