Tito Ortiz is on the one fight per year plan. He fought Rashad Evans in 2007, Lyoto Machida in 2008, and he promises to be back in the cage or ring with either the UFC or Affliction no later than July 2009.
When Ortiz left the UFC both he and UFC President, Dana White seemed to be saying “good riddance” of one another. However, it now appears that bridge has not entirely been burned.
White recently stated that “Lorenzo still likes Tito” which seems to mean maybe the UFC can still work something out with the Huntington Beach Bad Boy.
If it’s one thing Tito Ortiz still has it is his name. Ortiz still stirs a reaction in people; MMA fans want to either see him win or see him lose but at least for now it seems they still want to see him.
