Dana White: 'Tito's back'




"Tito’s calling out (Mark) Coleman when he’s fighting Chuck (Liddell). I don’t even know what to say to that. That’s Tito. Guy just loses in the most important fight of his life. This meant more to Coleman than anything, to fight Randy Couture and beat him. He loses, he’s standing up there doing an interview and Tito’s screaming sh-- at him. Tito’s back."

UFC President Dana White joins a perplexed MMA community in trying to unearth the reasoning behind the verbal remarks "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" hurled at Mark Coleman following his disappointing loss to fellow Hall-of-Famer Randy Couture in the main event of UFC 109: "Relentless" at the Mandalay Bay Events Center on Feb. 6. Ortiz told "The Hammer" that "Paybacks are a bitch" just as Coleman was about to give his post-fight thoughts to Joe Rogan inside the Octagon apparently to get back at him for incendiary remarks directed towards his family in the not-too-distant past. Was Ortiz out of line? Or was he "just being Tito?"
