In addition, he's not sympathetic to the fact that "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" is "old" and "needs money" (his words), despite a long and fruitful career as one of the early stars of mixed martial arts (MMA). Then again, that's just White's side of the story.
And "it sucks."
"It sucks that Dana White still has to say bad things about me," Ortiz posted on Twitter. "One year has passed and [he] still attacks me. I don't feel I have to attack him in any way. #SHAME I hope one day he will get over it. Must suck to sleep at night thinking about me."
What is it about Dana and his former light heavyweight champs?
In White's defense, it wasn't an unprovoked attack, though it was a bit bad-mannered. Reporters at the UFC on FOX 8 post-fight press conference scrum (watch it here) were inquiring about Tito's decision to resurrect his fighting career (see why here), in which he publicly called out UFC and Bellator.
I guess he got his answer.
Even if Ortiz never again steps foot inside the Octagon, he's still recognized for his contributions in the promotion's Hall of Fame, which not without irony, also prompted another Twitter war (involving finances) between "The People's Champion" and a certain UFC "Psycho."
Can't we all just get along?
