MMA Quick Quote: Nick Diaz may have sent the Tito Ortiz business into Chapter 11

"I actually just got released from my doctor to start doing my weight training, which I've been doing the last seven days. I kind of need to hold myself back a bit because I want to go harder. But the doctor says, 'Take your time, take your time.' I'm six months out now. I've got about another month-and-a-half or two months and I can start wrestling again. I see 'Babalu' out here running around flapping his lips. That might be a pay-per-view fight. After the fight they're going to be saying 'Baba-who?' I'm excited to get back in the cage and compete and give all of my fans the best that I do, [although] tonight was kind of a letdown, watching Frank (Shamrock) lose. I wanted that rematch, but the way he looked? Thanks, Nick. I appreciate it. It's like watching money go out the window."

-- Former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz -- who is still waiting for his UFC contract to expire -- talks about his future at the post-fight press conference for Strikeforce: 'Shamrock vs. Diaz' from the HP Pavilion on April 11. "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy," who has a tendency to flirt with any promotion not owned by Zuffa, is currently recovering from back surgery and looking for a place to call home. Will it be Strikeforce? Money talks ... does Tito walk?

Check out Ortiz and Sobral jawing ringside this past weekend in the stands at the Strikeforce show after the jump.
