Tito Ortiz is talking about a new totally sweet almost done fight deal, which would be very interesting indeed if he hadn’t already flown off the handle before, announcing an ‘almost done’ fight deal. That ‘almost done fight deal’ turned out to be ‘not done at all’. So even though Tito is talking big again, I’ve got my doubts that a deal is done at all. Here’s what he’s saying:
“Most likely I’m not going with the UFC, that’s about 99% sure that that’s not happening,” said Ortiz in an exclusive interview with MMAWeekly.com. “I’ve got to be thankful for Lorenzo (Fertitta), what he gave me to this point, but it’s too bad that they have a president the way he is, just hot headed the way he is, takes everything personal and I wash my hands clean.
“I did as much as I possibly could for them, and they did as much as they possibly could for me.”
The new deal is still being finalized according to Ortiz, but he expects the announcement to happen by the end of the month, putting to rest his free agency and starting the next chapter of the “Huntington Beach Bad Boy.”
I love how Tito’s speech patterns are just so backwards. Is there such a thing as verbal dyslexia? His shit reads more like abstract poetry than actual conversation, and I bet that’s with MMA Weekly cleaning shit up when transcribing. Here’s Tito-speak in it’s natural setting:
I’ve got to be thankful
what he gave me to this point
but it’s too bad
that they have a president
the way he is
just hot headed
the way he is
and I wash my hands
One quick question: do you think Affliction canceling their event has something to do with a possible Tito signing? Or do you think their event shutting down means they’re toast for good?
