"This is a big test for me and what I am capable of, I had to get the mindset of our friendship out of the door when I learned who I was fighting. It's business. I don't want to make the same mistakes I did with Rich Franklin. In the cage, (Ortiz) will be my opponent – nothing else."
Matt Hamill was under the tutelage of Tito Ortiz on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season 3. Who knew almost five years later the two fighters would lock horns in the Octagon? "The Hammer" doesn't want to give the same respect he gave his good friend Rich Franklin over two years ago to Ortiz. Hamill has been on a roll since that fight with "Ace," going on a four fight winning streak. It's been the exact opposite for the "Huntington Beach Bad Boy" who hasn't had a victory in over four years. Can Ortiz break the winning streak of "The Hammer?" Or will Ortiz continue his own streak? The losing one.
