"I think we should still fight, just because of the s--- he's been saying. Saying that I'm afraid of him and I'm a p----, this and that. Go f--- yourself man. Are you kidding me? Has he ever defended his world title longer than me? No. Has any light-heavyweight ever defended the world title longer than me? No. I'm only 35 years old. I'll be back in the cage again, and I'll be dominating."
Exiled Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 11 coach Tito Ortiz has an extremely optimistic view of his future inside the Octagon, including another fight with nemesis Chuck Liddell that was supposed to go down this Saturday (June 12) in Vancouver. "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" pulled out of the UFC 115 main event to have surgery in hopes of repairing a neck condition that left him vulnerable to an "Iceman" offense. As a result, UFC President Dana White booted him from the Spike TV reality show and hired Rich Franklin to take his place. Ortiz is 0-3-1 since 2006 and hasn't had a win since bludgeoning Ken Shamrock into retirement nearly four years ago. Can he return and "dominate" like he claims? Or has the evolution of the sport already passed him by?
