"I’m gonna crush him. I’m gonna push the tempo like he’s never had the tempo pushed against him. I watched him fight Fedor Emelianenko. I watched how afraid he was to stand with him. Let’s see if he wants to stand with me. I’m not afraid of him. To me he’s more of a mummy and less of a ‘Hammer.’ He started about a year-and-a-half before I started my career, and I see him as a ground and pound specialist. My own forte is to kind of take guys down and ground and pound them. Give the fans what they want to see. That's what I do."
Former light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz prepares for his upcoming bout against Mark Coleman at UFC 106 from the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 21. "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" is coming off major spinal fusion surgery to correct a back problem that plagued him in his most recent bouts. His last appearance was in May 2008 — a unanimous decision loss to now 205-pound champion, Lyoto Machida. With a long term contract finally in place, Ortiz is here to stay -- but where does a win over "The Hammer" take him?
Check out some of his chilling preparations after the jump.
