Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions is venturing into MMA on Saturday, November 24th at The Forum in Inglewood, California. The first card he’s promoting is a trilogy fight between UFC legends Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz, as the former light heavyweight champion square off again, twelve years removed from when Liddell stopped Ortiz in his final successful title defense. Liddell hasn’t fought since 2010, hasn’t won since 2007, but he is 2-0 against Ortiz, so… he has that going for him.
How does the rest of this pay-per-view card look? Well there are some familiar names. “Filthy” Tom Lawlor is in the co-main event against Deron Winn, while Gleison Tibau and Efrain Escudero will square off in a catchweight at 160 lbs. Jay Silva is a former UFC and Bellator middleweight, but he now competes at heavyweight, and he’ll take on Oscar Cota.
Here’s the lineup, with a start time of 9 PM ET/6 PM PT:
Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz
Deron Winn vs. Tom Lawlor
Kenneth Bergh vs. Jorge Gonzalez
Gleison Tibau vs. Efrain Escudero
Walel Watson vs. Ricardo Palacios
Jay Silva vs. Oscar Cota
