Dana White Says UFC Will Release Ortiz If Charges Hold Up

(Dana White and Tito Ortiz during happier times)

UFC president Dana White was contacted this afternoon by TMZ to enquire about whether or not Tito Ortiz would likely be let go from the promotion due to the felony domestic violence charges that were laid against "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" stemming from an alleged assault on his girlfriend Jenna Jameson this morning. 

Answering diplomatically, White told the TMZ reporter, "We’re gonna be fair, but we could cut him. Other than going on a killing spree, being accused of domestic violence is the worst thing you can have going for you."

Chances are, if Ortiz is indeed found guilty of the charges, the likelihood that any legitimate organization would want to sign him may be slim to none due to the inevitable PR nightmare that would follow him, which would mean that he would need to rely on alternative sources of income to make ends meet, such as his Punishment Athletics clothing line.

My God.

So BEING ACCUSED of domestic violence is almost as bad as going on a killing spree? Is he serious? Is this Dana White or is this Oprah?

I cannot believe that it has reached the point where you can now lose your job before you have even been convicted, let alone sacked because you were convicted of domestic violence. I wonder if they would be so quick to cut their fighters for any assault charge from now on, before they are proven guilty?

I always liked Dana White, but the more I see of him in action lately, the more I am starting to dislike the guy.

Dana White-Knight. Yup, Jenna Jamesons friends will want to have the sexy time with you now bro, because they can all see you are serious business when it comes to slapping around whores.

Those TMZ people, so quick to throw a man under a bus. They're saying (Titos laywer) this morning there have been no charges filed against Tito, and Titos press thing says Jenna is on drugs (Oxycotin? I'm shocked!) and she relapsed yesterday and had a meltdown.

Hasn't Jenna been beaten off too, I mean, beaten enough?

Jenna will probably drop the charges now that she knows Tito will lose his job if convicted. She needs the $ to pay for the weekly lip injections (no pun intended). That or she could make the first ever real zombie porn. Cuz that bitch looks like the walking dead.

They have children. Sad.

I doubt Tito won the standup, so maybe he took her down? But I would think Jenna has a lot of experience off her back.

Still have to say 50-45 Frank Edgar tho.

@ Killa-K,
Fair enough.
Honesty deserves my vote.
SumDumGuy- April 26, 2010 at 10:56 pm
Oh, for fuck sake! Now that Tito is in prison, who’s gonna fight for the freedom of mixed martial arts?

Allow me to end this discussion with an answer to questions that were brought up by curious posters in this afternoon's spirited discussion:

Dana has a peculiar fascination with Tito because, as the picture obviously shows, at some point in the recent past they were conjoined twins. Trained together? Old Manager? No, Dana was merely blessed with the larger half (2/3's ?) of the brain, leaving Tito with an abnormally large and empty skull.

Bum Fights Championship? Is that what this is all about that ya'll keep yappin' about?

I've said it before, under different I.D. - now I'll give myself away by saying it again:

"The only possible solution in dealing with Tito Ortiz involves dropping him into a pit of molten lava."

Well, how prophetic am I? Not too goddamn often one offers that up as a solution (and a good one!) and lo an behold, there's a major volcanic eruption that lasts for weeks shortly after.

Call it karma, juju, mojo, whatever, but the cosmos have aligned behind my solution. I say we go for broke and tie War Machine and Tito together and send them in after the ring.

I can pretty much fuckin guarantee I'm going to hate any story that uses TMZ as a source. Fuck celebrities and fuck everyone who cares about them.

And looking at recent photo's of her posted here today, I cant beleive I used to whack off to her movie's.
Someone's finally made Courtney Love look good

I see th......Tito's head is...........,Nope, I got nothing, what a fucken trainwreck of a couple, UFC's very own Pamela and Tommy Lee,
And Dana, Kiddy fiddlers are the worst, you just shoot those cunts on sight

@ robthom,

nah i always chicken out right before the killing part, but everyone likes to exaggerate
robthom- April 26, 2010 at 7:49 pm
Bumfights for eye teeth IMO.

And Robthom is reporting that TMZ is info central for fags with a carnal and inexplicable desire for hollywood canceraids.

TMZ is reporting that Tito and Harold Howard will be training together for when they get released they are set to fight for felony fights 4

@ killa-k,
just out of curiosity, are you actually a killer?
JMass6112- April 26, 2010 at 6:51 pm

and remember it grammar
Killa-K- April 26, 2010 at 6:47 pm
Apparently he typed her name into Google and found some naked pics or something.
robthom- April 26, 2010 at 6:41 pm
@ RDT,
is tito supposed to be on tuf again or something?

I wouldn't watch that.
Ninja- April 26, 2010 at 6:27 pm
Douglas Crosby scored the bout 50-47 Jameson.....
Robocop Didnt Tap- April 26, 2010 at 6:11 pm
Dana won't release Tito until after TUF is over. Don't want to spoil something no one gives a fuck about.
robthom- April 26, 2010 at 6:02 pm
They certainly have a fatal attraction.

I can pretty much talk myself into understanding most of Dana's more questionable behavior.

Except for his tito fixation.

Maybe he thinks its cute and doesn't know any better because he comes from the east?
