"When I was in the UFC, they talked so much about how I wanted to get out of it and how I wanted to stop fighting. It was a bunch of baloney. I still see 3-4 more years of competition left (in me) and I want to build. I want to make a (rival) company neck and neck with the UFC. I think it’s going to be about taking care of the fighters and that’s what I’m going to do."

Former UFC light heavyweight champion, Tito Ortiz, talks about his future in a recent interview. After an upcoming tour to promote his new book, "This is Gonna Hurt," Ortiz -- who recently satisfied the last fight on his UFC deal -- says that he wants to start a new mixed martial arts promotion. That's a costly endeavor, which would need a patient investor with deep pockets. Perhaps his good friend, Donald Trump, is interested. Stranger things have happened.
