Just What You’ve Always Wanted: Chuck Liddell/Tito Ortiz Feud Coming to DVD

By Jason Moles

Before I dig in, let’s take a look at what Amazon has to say about this ingenious idea:

Once friends, now bitter enemies, UFC superstars Chuck ”The Iceman” Liddell and ”The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” Tito Ortiz waged intense battles inside and outside of the Octagon. UFC Bad Blood: Liddell vs. Ortiz gives an all access look at the epic feud forged in heated competition over the UFC Championship, and fueled by personal conflict that often boiled over. Through exclusive new interviews, rare behind-the-scenes footage, and hard hitting action from their historic fights, you can re-live the rivalry that helped launch the Ultimate Fighting Championship into the mainstream, and make Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz household names that will be forever linked.

Special Features: Countdown to UFC 66, UFC 66: Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz, and UFC 47: Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz

Well it’s about time that massive video library is being put to use. One of the most well-known and publicly talked about feuds in mixed martial arts will live forever on DVD and Blu-ray come August 30th, you know, in case you ever want to show your grandkids what human cock fighting looked like. Not sure about you, but wouldn’t this have been a bigger seller last year when Chuck Liddell coached opposite Tito Ortiz on The Ultimate Fighter 11? Rumor has it the DVD was supposed to be released much earlier but had to withdraw from stores due to a bulging disc and a cracked case.

To bring a few of you up to speed…

MMA Photo Tribute: Awesome People Hanging Out Together

One of our favorite online obsessions over the last month has been awesome people hanging out together, a tumblr photo blog devoted to celebrities mingling in unexpected combinations. (I mean, seriously: Dylan and Ali? Alice Cooper and Colonel Sanders? Epic.) Since there are aren’t any MMA fighters represented on the site, we decided to do some online crate-digging of our own and put together a CagePotato version of the “awesome people” photo-phenomenon. Enjoy these rare and classic MMA photos, which continue after the jump, and shoot us some links in the comments section if we’ve left out any of your favorites.

Video: Cocaine is a Helluva Drug

Note to coke fiends: When you go to an MMA show hopped up to the gills on the white stuff, try to sit still and blend in. Otherwise, expect to see your ridiculous ass on YouTube on Monday morning.

The video above that depicts an unnamed coke monster who thinks he’s taking part in a virtual reality bout, was shot by our friend John Joe O’Regan from Fighters Only at an event over the weekend in the UK. What’s funny is, even after the show’s promoter, UFC welterweight Mark Scanlon tells the guy to sit down and chill out, moments later he’s back on his feet pantomiming punches, chokes and bone snaps.

And Now Your Wednesday Moment of Zen: Chuck Liddell’s New Nickname Courtesy of CagePotato’s Youngest Reader

I didn’t know if this little anecdote was worth posting here, but since there has been a decent response to it, I figured the story would bring a smile to at least few faces on an otherwise uneventful Wednesday.

Last summer my club did a seminar with Scott Epstein and Chuck Liddell. Unfortunately, for reasons beyond my control, I didn’t get an interview with Chuck for CP, but I did get a chance to chat with him for a while during a break in the seminar. Since he is the most recognizable face in the sport and has been since my kids started understanding what MMA and the UFC were, they’ve always known who he was and were excited to know that “The Iceman”  was making an appearance in our little town in Ontario, Canada.

Fast-forward almost a year and my (now) six-year-old daughter hands me her school journal to read yesterday and is quick to point out the unintentionally hilarious entry that details my meeting with Chuck.

Check it out after the jump.

Chuck Liddell was on the latest episode of Fox Sports’ Barfly alongside actor and BJJ black belt Ed O’Neill (AKA Al Bundy) and host and author Mark Kriegel. Besides talking about the rise in popularity of the UFC in comparison to the drop in popularity of boxing, the trio touched on the former UFC light heavyweight champion and Hall-of-Famer’s recent retirement, which is when Chuck got a bit emotional.
