In three days, Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz will square off for the third time at The Forum in Los Angeles. Their unexpected trilogy has drawn a mixed reaction from the MMA community. Golden Boy Promotions' Oscar De La Hoya would have you believe fans have waited years for this, which is simply not true. Liddell is 48, and hasn't fought since 2010. Ortiz is 43, and lost the first two meetings convincingly.

Liddell wants to prove he's still got it and, frankly, never lost it. It's no secret his decision to retire in 2011 was heavily influenced by Dana White, his friend and the president of the UFC.

And for Ortiz, this is a chance to rectify what he's always seen as one of the greatest wrongs of his career. The way Ortiz sees it, the UFC favored Liddell during their rivalry and stacked the deck against him whenever it could.

Arnold Berdon, the husband of UFC flyweight Rachael Ostovich, was arrested on suspicion of second-degree attempted murder. Berdon, who turned himself into Honolulu police late Tuesday, has not been formally charged with a crime but remained in police custody as of Wednesday evening.

Berdon is also a professional MMA fighter, with a 7-2 overall record. He has fought on various regional shows, including Titan FC and Victory FC. Ostovich was scheduled to face Paige VanZant at UFC Fight Night on Jan. 19 in Brooklyn, but was forced to withdraw due to the injuries suffered last weekend.
