Tito Ortiz talks very candidly about his pending retirement, which he acknowledges is just around the corner. Essentially, his thought process is that when it stops being fun, he'll stop fighting. There is, of course, more to it than that, though.
Ortiz has children who he says he wants to be able to play with as they get older and his health has been a question mark for years now. Multiple surgeries on his neck and back have hindered him greatly and despite his taking on the moniker of "The People's Champ," Ortiz is ready to leave it all behind to be with his family.
First, though, he's got a date with Brazilian buttkicker Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 140 on Dec. 10 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. A win could very well change his mind. Then again, a loss could mean the end of the line.
Stay tuned, Maniacs.
