Quoteworthy:

"I’d like to be in those (championship) shoes once again, and Saturday night will be the first step to make that happen. Camp’s gone perfect. No injuries. The first time in seven years that I haven’t had any injuries, and I’m very, very thankful. Someone’s looking over me. It’s time to battle. Time to go to war ... I’m in a good place. I’m in a very good place. Physically and emotionally, I’m in a place that I’ve always wanted to be in. I’m not going to hold anything back. I’m not going to leave it in the judges’ hands. I’m going to fight with my heart, my determination, my mind, as hard as I possibly can. I’m going to leave it all out in the cage."

Hear ye! Hear ye! "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" is alive and well! A surgically repaired Tito Ortiz wants to make sure the fans know he's perfectly healthy and had a "great" training camp heading into his UFC 121 fight against Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 3 pupil Matt Hamill on Oct. 23 in Anaheim. Of course if he loses, what will he have to say for himself? If every loss in the past four years can be attributed to an injury, what does it mean if the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion falls on Saturday night? It could mean he's done, and the stakes have never been higher for his "Punishment" career. Can he pull it off?
