Dana White: 'I never stepped in and had an intervention with Chuck Liddell'


Props: Las Vegas Sun


"It’s not true, I never stepped in and had an intervention with Chuck Liddell. Tito says some crazy stuff sometimes. Chuck is a rich guy with a lot of time on his hands. He’s single. He likes to go out and meet girls. He’s no different than anyone else. He’s no different than Tito."

UFC President Dana White confirms the recent statement from WEC General Manager Reed Harris that former light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell required an intervention to quell his extravagant social life. Tito Ortiz dropped the apparently inaccurate nugget in an interview to promote the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), which is scheduled to debut on Spike TV on March 31. "Iceman" and "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" -- who have a tumultuous personal history, as well as two fights between them -- have been tapped as coaches. Is it any surprise that we are already being inundated with trash talk material? Did Tito go too far this time around or is it just par for the course?
