Ortiz, 43, was finished by Liddell, 48, in the first two matchups, the last of which was over 12 years ago at UFC 66. “The Iceman” hadn’t fought in eight years, while Ortiz submitted Chael Sonnen at Bellator 170 in January 2017. But this time with both fighters cautious, Ortiz got the better of the exchanges until a confident straight right floored Chuck, who had looked every bit his age up to that point.

Referee Herb Dean called the bout at 4:24 of the first round. In the post-amble, both fighters embraced.
