Fourteen years after their first bout and 12 years after their second, Ortiz defeated his rival for the first time with 36 seconds left in the opening frame.
Unfortunately Liddell then took a few unneccessary extra punches before the referee was able to intervene to stop the fight and hand Ortiz a TKO victory with 4.24mins on the clock.
Ortiz wants revenge having lost two fights to Liddell by stoppage, he lost in 2004 at UFC 47 and again on December 30, 2006 at UFC 66.

After a couple of minutes of feeling out Liddell, Ortiz went in for the kill. I want to help give back to the fighters.

Liddell was on the back foot for the entire fight but, like a true fighter, only felt he made a strategic mistake. I don't know, I don't know what I'm going to do.
