Quoteworthy:

"He's been babied his whole life coming from being deaf of course and he's going to be babied after when I knock him out. He's slow; he's like a big slow ox. I'm going to pick him apart and I know his corner can't really tell him what to do and show him the mistakes he does. I've noticed he's deaf, so he has a soft head, you hit him with more and more shots. You people don't know this. Watch how Franklin knocked him out quick. You hit them with soft shots because their equilibrium, they don't have no equilibrium. And you hit them with shots and you hit them with small shots, I'm not looking' for big shots. I'm looking' for small shots. Little small shots and by the second, middle of the third round you're going to see someone going to sleep and I'll snuggle him."

Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Tito Ortiz finally noticed that Matt Hamill was deaf and has since formulated the perfect gameplan for defeating "The Hammer" at UFC 121 on Oct. 23 in Anaheim. "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" will pepper his foe with "soft shots" because Hammil "don't have no equilibrium." Anyone predicting that Ortiz will indeed secure his first win in almost four years? Or will the "deaf" Hamill leave his former coach dumb and blind?
