Tito Ortiz is finally done. The Huntington Beach Bad Boy is looking to end his 15 year run in the sport against either Chuck Liddell or Forrest Griffin on Fourth of July weekend.
“After the fight against Nogueira, you know I got hit in the body, no broken ribs, so I was very stoked. A little bruised, my heart hurts more than I think my body does, but it’s one of those things that happen as a fighter. You know some win and some lose, just as long as I can walk away knowing that I learned something from it. July, hopefully Fourth of July weekend I will be fighting my last fight and I will be done. That’s it; it’s time to walk away. You know, Forrest, or I know everybody would like to see me against Chuck (Liddell) and, I don’t know. We will see what Lorenzo and Dana have to offer and see what they want to do. I’ll sit down with Lorenzo and Dana next week and let’s see, let’s make a fight, my last fight and let’s make a memorable one. ” [MiddleEasy]
Will he get his wish? Will Chuck Liddell come out of retirement to put on one finally beating for his longtime foe? And will the UFC give Tito the opportunity to go out on his terms? All to be apparently figured out this week!
