Tito Ortiz Comes Out Against PED’s, Big Bear and WWE

UFC 140: Open Workouts

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz is out in Sweden spreading the word of the UFC in preparation for UFC on Fuel 2. Tito came out to FightersOnly to talks about his stance on performance enhancing drugs (PED’s),

“You know I don’t know much about it at all. I have been fighting for 15 years and there have been trainers that tried to push that on me and I’ve said that if I have to do that kind of stuff, I am done with the sport, I won’t compete anymore because I want to be a natural athlete. And I have – for fifteen years I’ve competed and taken my drug tests, random drug tests, and passed everything because I am a true athlete. A lot of these guys are taking these supplements to make themselves more impressive or whatever, to become the fighters they want to be. That’s their choice – my recommendation is don’t do it. If it’s against the law or against the sport, don’t do it and if you do have to do it, don’t fight anymore. That’s just my take on it… I will leave it there, I won’t go into it any further.”

Tito also talks about the new bread of fighters coming into the sport and his pending retirement after his fight with Forrest Griffin this summer. He also hits on a future in the WWE,

Wow, that would be interesting. That would be really huge. That’s great promotion. There’s a lot of great things that can happen there. Let’s fight and see who the real “People’s Champ” is. The Rock? I don’t know. You never know. There are so many storylines you can go about. The future holds many things for me.”
