Tito Ortiz: I Have a Lot of People to Prove Wrong at UFC 132

The next fight is always the biggest of a fighter’s career, especially when he’s fighting at the top level of the sport. But Saturday night’s fight against Ryan Bader at UFC 132: Cruz vs. Faber, has an added significance for Tito Ortiz.

A pioneer of the sport that has called the UFC home for his entire career, Ortiz is fighting not for a step up the Top 10 ladder or to get into title contention, but for the very survival of his career.

There aren’t really many other viable options for Ortiz to go fight elsewhere, and if he loses to Bader, he’s all but assured of being kicked out the door… but he doesn’t plan on going quietly. He’s going to do everything he can to prove several people wrong and several others right, when he steps in the cage with Ryan Bader in Las Vegas.

Ortiz, at the UFC 132 open workouts on Wednesday, again addressed questions about his future, the fight with Bader, and seeing many of the fighters he started out with step to the wayside.

      Unfortunately, as long as Tito is on Jenna’s good side, he can live comfortably until he dies.

      I have a feeling that they will be together for a long time. Tito will obviously want to marry her without prenup, especially after he gets cut from the UFC. Tito is a sly dude. He knows how to work Jenna. But Jenna is no slouch, she knows what’s up. So at the end of the day, you have Tito with his head up Jenna’s crotch and Jenna supporting Tito until she dies.

      Tito is a true pimp!

    I have a feeling Bader is not strong enough to give Tito a beating. Expect a unanimous lay and hump victory for Bader.

    So what will Tito do after he gets cut from the UFC? I don’t know. SF has Mousasi, Mo, and Feijao, all three will give Tito a wooping. Dream? But there is no one there…

    So I guess Tito will fight in Bellator.

    I think Tito did enough as a fighter to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, along with Vitor and Wandy.

    The funny thing is, out of his peers Chuck, Randy, Wandy, and Vitor, he gets the least respect! This goes on to show that playing a career heel doesn’t help.

    Karma comes around? HAHA! yeah Tito. It does huh? Go ask Tank, Ken Shamrock, Frank Shamrock, Coleman, Randy, Chuck, and Rashad what they think about you.
