The battle with Frank Shamrock that launched his career to a new level. A brash double-bird salute to the legendary Ken Shamrock. Nearly slamming Evan Tanner through the bottom of the Octagon to the concrete floor below. The “U-S-A” chants accompanying him and the American flag to the ring days after the tragedies of 9-11. Three crushing victories over a legend… and displaying unwavering respect afterwards.
Any fan of mixed martial arts that reads the above scenes cannot mistake their association. For one man and one man only has maintained an ever-present profile in this sport over the past ten years… Tito Ortiz.
Love him or hate him, Tito’s presence can never be denied.
From his unlikely debut at UFC 13 (yes, some 60-odd shows ago) to his most recent dismantling of Ken Shamrock at UFC Fight Night 7, not even his legendary opponent has “consistently” maintained such a high-level presence in mixed martial arts over that time.
As Tito prepares to once again step into the Octagon with UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Chuck Liddell on December 30th, he joins hosts Damon Martin and Jeff Cain on MMAWeekly’s SoundOff Radio to take over the airwaves and talk about everything Tito.
Don’t be late for this one, Tito is scheduled to come on the show as soon as we go on the air LIVE at 6pm PST / 9pm EST. If you catch it live, as always, the broadcast is free of charge.
