"Matt, I’m sorry. Business is business, though.... It sucks, but this is business.... UFC made the decision, I was bummed, I love Matt, I think he’s an awesome athlete and he’s an awesome person. You won’t see any shit talking from me about Matt Hamill because I think he’s an awesome guy, but it’ll make it even a better fight when it comes October 23 when I cave his face in. No bad feelings. No bad emotions. Just punishment."

-- Former light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz reluctantly signed his contract to fight Matt Hamill at UFC 121: "Lesnar vs. Velasquez," which is scheduled for the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., on Oct. 23. "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy," who coached "Hammer" on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) where the two became friends, is quick to point out that it is not a fight that he requested. However, he's willing to put friendship aside and dish out some punishment if it gets him one step closer to winning a world title. But he's now 35-years-old and suffers from myriad health problems -- he recently underwent major neck surgery earlier this year. Can Ortiz actually make another championship run, or will Hamill stop him before he even has a chance to start?
