Today Affliction MMA announced at its “Day of Reckoning” press conference, that former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz has signed on as a commentator for the Jan. 24th Affliction 2 “Day of Reckoning”. Tito will join the play-by-play commentator Sean Wheelock and Jimmy Smith.
“This has nothing to do with me fighting for Affliction … I’ve been fighting for 11 years, so I think I know a thing or two about fighting.”
Rumors of Tito Oritz singing with Affliction as a fighter are false, according to Affliction’s Tom Atencio.
“I’m actually talking to Tito. We have a great relationship and I really like Tito a lot…But he can’t even fight until July [because of recent back surgery], so at this point it doesn’t really make sense for us to talk about anything.
“We hang out, we talk to each other and if eventually he goes with us, great. If he goes back to the UFC, then I wish him nothing but the best.”
Who said Titos mouth wouldn’t eventually pay off?
