According to that great source of worldwide news that allows instant updates from anyone and everyone – Twitter, Tito Ortiz has confirmed Mark Coleman has pulled out of their UFC 106 bout scheduled for Nov. 21 in Las Vegas.
Here are Tito’s two unedited tweets once he learned of the failed fight:
Colman,colman,colman to bad he sissies out!!!! Who’s NEXT?
Coleman,coleman,coleman to bad he sissies out!!! Who’s next??? I’m kicking someone’s ass on Nov 21st!
As an Editor I cringe just a bit at the spelling, but frankly who cares about spelling when you’re a millionaire, right?
The guys from Cage Fighter clothing who sponsor Coleman are reporting “The Hammer” tore his MCL. They also respond to Tito’s claim that Coleman “sissied out,” and fire back a low blow with a pretty mean comment posted on their Facebook wall:
The Hammer has 2nd degree tear of MCL suffered during training. Asked UFC to move fight with Tito to Jan 2 but will do what is good for UFC. The Hammer will fight anyone. Tito says “sissy”LOL.. please. Only thing Coleman afraid of is contracting SWINE FLU from that dbag. We all know where his he has been.
After taking a little over two years off, 44-year-old Mark “The Hammer” Coleman returned to MMA action with a third round TKO loss to “Shogun” Rua back in January. However, Coleman rebounded nicely and shocked the MMA world in his next fight with a unanimous decision over Stephan Bonnar at UFC 100 in July.
Tito Ortiz has not fought since May 2008 when he lost a unanimous decision to current UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida. Following the loss, Ortiz became a free agent and underwent back surgery before signing a new contract with the UFC.
All but one of Ortiz’s professional fights have taken place inside the UFC Octagon. Although, he and UFC President Dana White had their differences in the past, they have reconciled, and Ortiz has stated he wants to finish his career with MMA’s premiere organization.
So who do you think Tito should fight?
