The Prodigal Son Returns

14 months of speculation result in Ortiz coming back to the UFC

Tito Ortiz is a business man first and foremost. He realizes that his best days as a fighter have passed. He understands that he’s no longer a top 5 light heavyweight. He gets the fact that his name and face carry more value than his actual skills at this point in the game. Most importantly, he knows that there’s an awful lot of fans out there who will pay to see him regardless of whether or not he’s a diminished fighter and that the best place for him to ply his craft is the UFC. Tito is coming home. Freshly recovered from a back surgery that is supposed to give him back his explosiveness, Tito is rumored to be facing off with fellow MMA graybeard Mark Coleman sometime later this year. He may not win UFC gold ever again, but there is no denying  the impact Tito has on mainstream MMA exposure. Like him or hate him, Tito is good for MMA.

    Maybe Tito, Chuck, and Coleman should just face each other a few times for like two years just to avoid retirement for as long as they can.

    You should’ve used one of the pics where he’s with Jenna Jameson and his head is literally close to the size of her torso.

    Coleman is a brilliant fight. If Tito loses, there is still a guy positioned to take the next step up. That said, it’s a guy Tito should beat.

    Yeah, it was really hard to fight the urge to use a freakish Tito pic. They’re certainly not hard to find. I really like the Coleman match up. On paper Ortiz should win it, but you never know which Tito or which Coleman will show up. Winner should fight Wanderlei imo.

    Mgarza has the same thought process as some in the business.
