tito ortiz returns in may

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz tells MMAWeekly that he is expecting to return in May on Cinco De Mayo weekend.

Tito Ortiz has took 10 months off to heal his injuries and to play Hollywood, starting in Donald Trumps “The Apprentice”.

“My last fight, before I fought Rashad (Evans), I wasn’t 100%, and I just wanted to make sure if I ever fight again I’m going to be 100%,” Ortiz told MMAWeekly. “The back injury that I sustained kind of hindered me for fight time. Now it’s a lot better, and May will be my next fight.”

“I spoke to Lorenzo (Fertitta), and it looks like in May,” said the former UFC light heavyweight champion . “They’re going to wait until May, so the next Cinco de Mayo weekend will be Tito Ortiz’ next fight.”

“I really want to fight at 100%. I’m making these guys look good when I’m not 100%. When I had the draw with Rashad, I should have never did that. I should have beat him, but it’s all right. We’ll do it again. I just want to make sure I’m 100% before all of my fights so I don’t let any of my fans down when I lose or if I get a draw or something like that because I felt like I let my fans down and myself down, and I don’t want to let that happen.”

    damn. what a lucky bastard. jenna jameson may be a retired porn star, but she is so fine. i don't believe tito is tapping that. i heard that's how jenna is helping tito improve his endurance for his fights. anyway, we need to see tito-rashad II.

    Yeah, she looks hot in this particular picture but for the most part her face is starting to look fake. Plus she probably has more miles on that body than an 80's Honda. Personally, If I want to be with that much plastic I would rather buy a blow up doll.

    I dont know who he will fight but I'm guessing it's Rashad. I dont think he would fight anyone better than that right now.

    She is hot and thats why he is doing all of these shows and not even fighting. Tito is going to throw away his fighting career if he doesn't take care of his business. Just look at Diego Sanchez who has two losses since he started dating Ali Sonoma. Hope they're worth it guys.

    yeah, but if you look at them, it's because of their hot girlfriends that they have incredible endurance. sanchez and tito never gas in the 3 rounds.

    plus, i heard the reason why ali somona and diego sanchez are dating is because they have interesting conversations. haha

    Tito is a punk. At the press conference before he fought Rashad, he stated that he was 100% healthy, then after the fight he started complaining about being injured.

    I can't stand him…..

    He does have a hottie though!!!

    Crynot you are right on with that. I remember him saying that Rashad is in for a nightmare because he was 100% with no injuries for once. And he gassed in that fight, I was most disappointed that he gassed.

    Derek, love that joke. I'm guessing they are going to figure out a solution to world peace one day haha.

    I havent seen Jenna lately but from the pic above, I dont blame the guy. Diego either. Most guys make money and buy nice things to get a hot girl so these guys are ahead of the game.

    tito never gas? did you see his last fight?what a pussy..he sucked during that fight now hes trying to rebuild his rep..he knows he sucks … and the last fight proved it he aint who he thinks he is…he thought he was the man after beating a worn out tired old man in shamrock…then chuck really showed him who he was ..still just a punk..and then the fiasco with rasheed he has has to feel like a loser … good thing he has a hot chick thats all hes got now and some cash of course…

    Ortiz hasn't looked good in a long time to me. His fights against Shamrock dont really count and he looked like he wasn't in the best of shape for Rashad. When Rashad took him down in the 3rd he couldn't do anything about it. All I can say about that is if there was another round, I think Rashad takes the fight. I do hope they fight again so I can see who will step up and who is full of shit.

    you have to admit that rashad sucks too though. he is pretty much a slapper, and he lets his hands down often. if he fought rampage, he would get KTFO.

    I think tito just didnot want to fight cause he got that point taken away and tito almost made evens Tap at the end of the 2 and if there was 5 min more tito would have won and i think going into the 3 he was like fuck i lost a point and he was ab to finish and i think he was just lost focus in the last round.. i hope they do it again so evens gets dropped or rashed vs Matt H
