What a difference a couple of years can make. At the “UFC 121: Lesnar vs. Velasquez” weigh-ins Friday, Oct. 22, in Anaheim, Calif., “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” Tito Ortiz wore a T-shirt that said “Dana White is my hero.”

Just a little over two years ago at UFC 84, Ortiz wore a T-shirt to the weigh-ins that said “Dana White is my bitch.” And then is his most recent bout, in November 2009, he wore a T-shirt that read “Dana is my bo$$.”

It is interesting to see the progression of the Ortiz-White relationship from bitch, to boss, to hero.

Some may see this as Ortiz kissing up to UFC President Dana White because he knows his job is on the line in his fight Saturday night against Matt Hamill. Or maybe Ortiz truly is grateful to White for keeping him employed despite his 0-3-1 record in his last four bouts.

Ever the showman and always good for selling a fight, now it is time for Ortiz to produce results in the Octagon.
