Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Photo of the Day: Tito Ortiz Wrecked His Car While Practicing for Celebrity Race Yesterday

(You should have seen Tito driving this thing with his head out the window like Ace Ventura. It looked like a bobblehead in a HotWheels car. Photo credit: TMZ)

You would think that the UFC would have a clause in the contract of its fighters that restricts them from partaking in any dangerous activities like skydiving, attending a barbecue thrown by Mike Whitehead or living with Kim Couture. Apparently Zuffa is too busy writing up their new journalism policies to worry about fighters like Tito Ortiz wrecking race cars when they should be concerned with training for upcoming bouts.

According to TMZ, Ortiz crashed his Toyota Scion into a wall and then later took out Never Back Down star Djimon Hounsou’s car as well. The “Fueled by Fame” event takes place next weekend. What are the over/under on “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” crashing his car during the race and having an extreme case of whiplash forcing him out of his July 2 UFC 132 bout with Ryan Bader?

Props to CP reader Ryan M for the tip.

ok now that we've seen a picture of Tito's helmet let's see the car the car he was driving.

You'd think they would give Tito a car with more headroom.
Harry Nips- April 7, 2011 at 10:08 am
Now that's what I call a "HEAD-on" collision.

Scion is the official sponsor of the event everyone drives an identical car.

@Ruke Doufus

So, does his whole fight with Jenna make him Unlove...ed?
Tuggernuts- April 7, 2011 at 7:30 am
looks like Jenna's vag won this time

The crash was staged. He is just setting up an excuse for losing his next fight. Probably broke his spine in half or something.

Man, some comments in this thread were fucking hilarious!

Mike Meyers was in this celebrity race as was stuck trying to pass Tito. Here's an exerpt from his comm link to his pit crew:

Look at the size of that boy's heed.
I'm not kidding, it's like an orange on a toothpick.
Well, that's a huge noggin. That's a virtual planetoid.
Has it's own weather system.

That moron WOULD drive a Scion, wouldn't he. And yeah, we'll be hearing about this post-fight, for sure. Unless he has to go straight to the hospital, which is also possible.
Enricho Palazzo- April 7, 2011 at 3:54 am
Figures he drives some gay tuner car.

Ugh, are you going to keep shoehorning that crap about journalism policies into articles until someone cares?
DesolationUSA- April 6, 2011 at 9:36 pm
He'll never admit it but he was actually trying to commit suicide. He probably finally realized what a horrendous failure and laughing stock he is. Or purposefully making himself an excuse to lose a fight.

Looks like something that got spat out of Jenna's vag
Lesnarischamp- April 6, 2011 at 9:23 pm
I wonder how this will effect Tito's equilibrium.
djp1988- April 6, 2011 at 8:40 pm
Remember the scene in "So I Married an Axe Murderer" where Mike Meyers keeps yelling "HEAD! MOVE!"? Any smart ass comments I may have go completely out the window because that's all I can picture when Tito is involved.

Basically what Maine Blazer said.
SethF- April 6, 2011 at 8:34 pm
Odds that a crash gets him to pull from the fight? Not nearly as good as the odds that a crash gets brought up in his post-fight interview after another subpar performance.
dranokills- April 6, 2011 at 7:31 pm
it looks like he ran over his kids toy motorcycle, and THEN wrecked the car.That sure is pathetic.
Maine Blazer- April 6, 2011 at 7:30 pm
The whiplash won't be used as a reason to pull out of the fight, but it will be an excuse after he loses
HEX- April 6, 2011 at 6:55 pm
So Tito walks up to his car? slips over due to his inhumanly enormous head destroys the front of the car!

How is that even news? it only confirms as we all know that his head is huge! and can be used as a Ram!
mattyr31- April 6, 2011 at 6:55 pm
He was never going to fight Bader...and if for some miracle he does...he has the excuse for losing he has been looking for.
k-onda- April 6, 2011 at 6:27 pm
Who was the celebrity?
CaptnJonesy- April 6, 2011 at 6:10 pm
That car looks about right for his gay ass. Probably wrecked it trying to get away from Chuck Liddell
