The Huntington Beach Bad Boy? More like Huntington Beach Cry Baby. As corny as that sounds, Tito Ortiz is nothing more than that now.
Regardless on my feelings towards the guy, he used to be the face of the UFC back in 2003-2004. He would get under peoples skin before the fight would start, like no other fighter, and he used to be a feared fighter in the Light Heavyweight division. Now? It’s sad really.
I mentioned in my last UFC article, how I though Tito Ortiz would beat the guys he was suppose to, and lose to any REAL competition that he would have to come up against. Now, as his contract runs out in the UFC, he’s talking to the press about how some other promotion will sign him, like he’s Anderson Silva or something. Listen Tito, you’ll be lucky if Elite XC feeds you to Kimbo Slice.
In an article posted by the Associated Press, they said Tito spoke out against the UFC, saying “I’m fighting Machida of course but I think I’m really fighting the company” and “I’m fighting Dana White and I’m fighting for my freedom. Fighting the power, as they say.”
Tito, if you haven’t noticed, no one gives a fuck about you anymore. You’re like the pimple on the UFC’s back. You can sell anymore, and if I was Dana White, much like Donald Trump told you, You’re FIRED!.
A man who thinks he’s something he was four, five years ago is worse than having bloody shits while on a hot date.
To be honest, I don’t know why Dana hadn’t bought out your contract. I mean, you no show the fight against Dana White last year, and do nothing but complain after every fight, and that skinny dick-sucking machine of a girlfriend you have talking trash about your opponents doesn’t help your cause at all.
From the same article, Dana White stated the obvious, saying “Tito is an idiot; He’s one of the dumbest human beings I’ve ever met. Everything that comes out of his mouth makes no sense. And I just have no interest in being in the Tito Ortiz business anymore.”
This come from your former manager, you must really be more of an annoying idiot that you are portrayed on television.
Later in the Article, he started to whine, only like Tito can do. Saying that he understands the business and pretty much came across as saying he wants to be paid more money. Well, you sort of need to win fights to get the big boy pay checks Tito.
He finished off in the article by saying “I made these guys a lot of money and they have no respect for me, they really treat me bad and I’m just going to go elsewhere where a company respects me,”
Baby want his bottle?
Give me a fucking break. You lost your respect once you entered that company. Why should everyone treat you with respect, if you can’t win a fight to save your life anymore and badmouth the man who writes your pay checks? Just doesn’t make sense to me.
I and Audibly Offensive creator Pat Swafford feel the exact same about Ortiz.
Tito is past his prime by far, and to quote Swafford “Tito’s been nothing short of Tim Sylvia-esque boring over the last three years. His claim to fame is that he KO’ed Wanderlei Silva. His career went to the dumper when Couture rolled his ass up against the fence and literally spanked his ass”.
This is the damn truth. I mean, beating someone more washed up than yourself in Ken Shamrock were the only victories that you could get, and no one wanted to see that after Ken pretty much gave you the victory before the match even started the second time you guys fought.
When Tito is gone, no one will miss him. I’d be surprised if another place picks him up. He’s a major risk for any company that has him sign the dotted line.
As far as his last official contracted match under the UFC at UFC 84, Swafford has Machida for the win in the second round, either by submission or KO. Though I just spent the last while shitting on the guy, I think Machida is the most over-rated man in the business, and for arguments sake, say Tito wins, but in a boring fight. Tito via decision.
Also, look for predictions soon from I and Mr. Swafford before tomorrow nights event.
