Tongue-tied and twisted, Tito Ortiz held a mumbling, bumbling press conference on AXS.tv to outline the future of his client, former female mixed martial arts (MMA) champion Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos.
"The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" and public speaking go together about as well as chocolate milk and Jägermeister. Tito Ortiz attempted to hold center stage at the recent press conference to announce that his client, female mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Cristiane Santos, had signed a deal with Invicta FC.
However, as you'll see in the video above, Ortiz took to the dais with a mouthful of marbles, unable to clearly say his own client's name, much less deliver a coherent speech.
Not really sure whose bright idea it was for "Cyborg" to undress and step on a scale that no one could see, either. That was just weird and unnecessary, especially when no one was around to verify that Santos weighed 160 pounds.
Does it even matter?
It shouldn't because no matter what Ortiz tries to spit out, and no matter what unscientific evidence he enters into the court of public opinion, Santos will either have to just cut down to 135 pounds if she wants to fight Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) champion Ronda Rousey or stop talking about it.
Unfortunately, that doesn't appear to be happening anytime soon.
"I am not running," Cyborg said as she wore this shirt. "I want to fight her [it's personal] because of her personality. She doesn't respect me. She [has said] bad things about me. I want to fight her."
In the meantime, Santos will compete against Ediane Gomes at Invicta 5 on April 5, 2013, in a 145-pound match (read more on that here). The winner will then move on to fight Marloes Coenen for Invicta FC's 145-pound championship, an opponent who "Cyborg" starched under the Strikeforce banner back in 2010.
Hopefully, we don't have to listen to Ortiz try and tell us all about it.
