Tito Ortiz Announces Comeback via Bathroom Selfie; Will Bellator Bite?


(At least he didn’t tweet a picture of his dick this time.)

We guess being the best agent in MMA isn’t keeping Tito Ortiz occupied enough. The former long-time UFC light heavyweight champion hasn’t fought for a year now but recently tweeted that he’s considering a comeback.

The semi-retired fighter released a picture of himself and a series of tweets over the weekend that read, “Fighting is starting to sound fun again. ??????#Peopleschamp #comeback #Positive body is almost healed. @Punishment99 @ufc @Viacom @MTV @espn Come backs are always the best test! Live life to the fullest. #Positive.”

Tito is a great athlete and it’s impressive that he hasn’t gotten all fat and stuff since his competitive days, but the only thing that we’re #Positive about is that Tito has won just once over the past seven years in nine fights. Injuries — both real and imagined — and time take their toll on everyone, even formerly great fighters like Ortiz.

Clearly, Tito is trying to get the interest of any organization that will listen, by mentioning the UFC and Viacom, which now owns a majority stake Bellator. If Tito comes back, maybe it should be in Bellator where he at least won’t have to face the best light-heavyweights in the world.

We bet Viacom would give him a shot. Bjorn Rebney has said that he isn’t eager to sign Zuffa veterans but then Bellator has gone out and signed the biggest former Zuffa fighters they could every time.

Maybe Rebney means what he says, but there’s no indication that he’s actually in control of Bellator business decisions like these. First, it was King Mo. Then, Quinton Jackson. Maybe Tito Ortiz will be next?

What do you say, Nation? Is Tito serious or is this another attempt to get attention? Do you want to see “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” back in the cage? And if so, where would you like to see him fight, and against whom?

I would pay to see Tito get beat down by Chuck once more, and I am sure the Iceman would come out of retirement for the chance to punch Tito in the face again.

Just for shits and gigs, plus the fact that for a brief period of time he did kinda carry the UFC, I say give him 1 last shot. While we're at it let's make it a title shot, that way Tito can go out on his shield and stop griping about being mistreated by Dana, the UFC etc. I'll take Rousey by first round armbar.

His head is stil HUUUUGGEE

I would watch him, if he fights a can. I actually do believe that injuries have affected his performances big time. Not elite fighter thou, not in the last 5 years, not in the next.

I doubt he get's picked up as his asking price seems pretty high, and his skillz don't seem quite what they were. Someone has to be the anti-Zuffa though and I wish Bellator well in that. I just wish they wouldn't stick to tournaments only.

Tito has full custody of his two kids. He has to find some money to feed them and fast.

Tito: God damn it. I wanted to flex with the left and take the pic with the right but this stupid phone got me flexing with the right and taking the pic with the left.

Check it out! His AND Her sinks in the bathroom.
I wonder if he now uses Jenna's sink as a bidet after he takes a giant HGH & protein shake gorilla shit.

He actually took a "selfie" without his junk hanging out? That's not like him...

King Mo-ron, Rapage Jackson and Tito all in Bellator. Nope, nothing could go wrong there!

Maybe he heard shamrock was making up to 10g's to not show up to fight and wants in on the non-action

@El Guapo: and with a skull that size you know it's going to take some time. Those bones are like tectonic plates.

And there came a day, a day like no other, when not a single fuck was left to be given.

Tito's body is "almost" healed. Emphasis on almost. Cracked skulls take time, playa.
