Liddell FIgured Ortiz Wouldn't Fight Him, Wanted TV Time

Chuck Liddell is in the latest issue of Men's Fitness and tells the magazine that he told Dana White that he felt Tito Ortiz wouldn't fight him again and that Ortiz was just looking for TV time:

“My training is ramping up, getting harder and harder. Other than the fact that Franklin's a southpaw, there's not much of a difference. I've had to work on my all-round game because he's decent at everything. Him taking me down is not really a big threat, so if it goes to the ground it's because I decided it should, but he is a much better striker than Tito. I still really want to knock him out. He ran his mouth and now I get to say 'I told you so' to Dana. I told Dana that he wouldn't fight me and that he was just going to use this to get on TV. I don't care. Honestly. I mean I've already knocked him out twice. All I want is, if he decides to come back to the UFC, that he should have to fight me to get back in.”
