Fighters had a tough time watching the Iceman fall once again.
It was a sad night on Saturday at Golden Boy MMA as Tito Ortiz stopped Chuck Liddell in the first round of the main event. Ortiz stuck Liddell with a right hand, putting the Iceman out cold. Fighters took to social media to share their reactions as they watched the 48-year-old legend look like a shell of his former self.

That fight shouldn’t have even been sanctioned.. Chuck has to hang em up for good, Tito shouldn’t be advocating for him to continue after the way he looked tonight— Shane Burgos (@HurricaneShaneB) November 25, 2018

Did not enjoy the end of that fight. Feel for iceman. Legends should t go out like this. I wish it was a 3 round war that went to a decision #LiddellOritz3— Ricardo Lamas (@RicardoLamasMMA) November 25, 2018
