Tito Ortiz Was Never Knocked Out by Lee Murray in a Street Fight, According to Tito Ortiz


The story of Tito Ortiz getting punched out by convicted bank robber Lee Murray during an alleyway altercation after UFC 38 has grown into one of MMA’s most beloved bits of folklore. The most famous version — relayed second-hand from a drunken Pat Miletich and published in Matt Hughes‘s autobiography Made in America — ends with Tito Ortiz getting starched by "like, a five-punch combo," then boot-stomped.

On this Friday’s installment of Michael Schiavello’s HDNet interview series The Voice Vs…, Ortiz gets to tell his side of the tale. Basically, it was Ortiz’s friend that was getting stomped, and when Murray dropped Ortiz with a punch it was more of slip then anything else, and that only happened after Murray was running away like a little bitch, and Tito was able to pop back up anyway. As Tito explains, "I was never unconscious at the time, in my whole career I’ve never been unconscious, and I never will go unconscious." Also, Lee Murray’s robbery conviction was karmic revenge for this embarrassing story being spread around.

No mention of the best part of the Ortiz vs. Murray street fight legend, which involved Chuck Liddell knocking multiple dudes out with his back against a wall. Where were you back then, TMZ?

Yea, its not like we need updates on Tito, but it is mildly amusing to hear the fairy stories he comes up with, and it is fun hanging shit on the Humpty Dumpty head fucktard, and his filthy cum leaking skank of a wife

Tito's head so fat it could sell shade.

Tito's head so fat when he gets cut in a fight he uses bacon for band-aids.

Tito's head so fat he gots to iron his walk-out beanie in the driveway.

Tito's head so fat it sweats butter.

Tito's head so fat when he goes to the zoo elephants throw peanuts at it.

People report stories about Tito Ortiz because he is fun to make fun of and it entertains the whole dinner party. I thought it was fairly obvious.

I think what's also telling about this new stream of lies is how he holds his breath throughout the interview. It's as if he's trying to suffocate the little voice in his head that wants to make him tell the truth.

Wait, we can't trust someone from huntington named Tito?

Say it isn't soooooooooooo

serious note; the fake nervous laugh said as much as the constant looking away. you got knocked out. And also note how he does not address Chuck laying people out all over the place, cuz that's gotta be the part of the story Tito hates the most.
Videodrome_NOW- August 16, 2010 at 10:17 am
Again, why the hell does anyone give a shit about Ortiz? Every attempt of his to stay relevant in the MMA world works because for some fucking reason people will report this nonsense. Seriously, what the hell is everyone's problem? Do you guys actually like listening to him talk? Would you rather have him continue to force feed his down syndrome ideas into the world instead of just going away? Why is there not a universal ban on Tito? What has he accomplished in the last five years? NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm fucking telling you, CP. Knock this shit off. It's not funny.

Tito has a hard head, and only guys with soft heads get KO'd. So I believe Tito.
Spartacus81- August 16, 2010 at 9:32 am
Tito Ortiz is the biggest douche bag in history. There where witnesses that saw him get his ass handed to him by Lee Murray.By the way I just watches a compilation of 200 different dudes drop their loads on his baby mommas face. F**k Tito I really hope he gets hit by a bus,nobody deserves it more than him. He will never win another fight let alone become champ again. Its been like 8 or 9 years since he was champ and 6 since he has even won a fight. Pathological lying P.O.S.!

I actually believe Tito wasn't out cold, by the way. And I believe he physically cannot be knocked out by a normal person. His head adds such enourmous layers of padding that it cannot be KO'ed by conventional means. BJ Penn is the same way. They just absorb punishment in their fat heads, and no normal human can knock them out cold.

Maybe when a mild mannered environmental engineer from Colorado named Bruce Bannister takes his horse pills and turns into the hulking Shane Carwin he might have a chance to KO Tito. But otherwise... I just don't see it happening.

@ FightZen

I don't know... if someone busted into my hotel room in the middle of the night, woke my ass up, and told me about a giant bar fight with some friends of mine who happen to be the biggest stars in MMA at the time, I might remember that. And I doubt Matt and Pat talked about it that night, and then agreed to never speak of this event again. I'm sure there were some refreshers on the story during those years of training together.

Plus, If it comes to believing Matt Hughes over Tito Ortiz, I'll take Hughes. Hughes may be a lot of things, but Tito is a proven liar. Also, I think Tito's side of things largely confirms most of what Hughes recounted. Tito just refutes the head stomp (may be true?) and denies actually being KO'ed. But if Tito got knocked down by a quick 4 or 5 shots, whether out cold or not, I'm sure it looked that way to Pat while in the fray of the fight.

What, no injury claim?

"I was never unconscious at the time, in my whole career I've never been unconscious, and I never will go unconscious."

Im pretty sure he stole that quote from his wife's auto-biography.
Get Off Me- August 16, 2010 at 8:54 am
That's right people Tito is shooting a self defense video for people who do not want to get KO'd in the streets.
The video uncovers Tito's secret "Fresh Prince/Carltonesque" defensive stance.
To avoid being knocked out, simply place you hands palms down on the back of your skull, close your elbows to cover your face, duck down and wait for the referee or police to arrive. To remain concious try to recite the names of men who have skull phucked your wife and lies you have told family and friends over the course of your life.

His body language and lack of eye contact whilst describing the story says it all.

FightZen- August 16, 2010 at 8:08 am
I love that Hughes claims to have a word for word recollection of his middle of the night conversation with a drunken Militech.

Tito Ortiz's head acts in a way to to protect his brain from being KO'd the say way Homer Simpson had an extra thick layer of fluid around his brain and hence being able to avoid a KO from Drederick Tatum...Oh wait, Moe came in and saved Homer's ass with the fan man's flying contraption.

I've got $2 that says Ortiz/Hammill is declared a no-contest when, mid-beating, Jenna uses her flappy vagina to glide into the octagon like a flying squirrel and rescue Ortiz from the KO at the hands of the dude with the soft skull.

I'm Tito Ortiz.

I'm one of the baddest motherfuckers of all time, one of the best singers and one of the best looking motherfuckers you've ever seen. Hold my drink, bitch.
danomite- August 16, 2010 at 7:57 am
I don't think I'm necessarily all that good at being able to tell when someone's lying, but I could tell tito was lying before the guy even finished asking the question. after hearing him say that god was punishing lee murray with jail time for spreading rumors about Tito I wonder if his ego might actually be larger than his cranium.
Nick Ring- August 16, 2010 at 7:56 am
Tiiito, I can't help you win thith threet fight, my knee ligamenth are too loooooothe.
The Librarian- August 16, 2010 at 7:51 am
I've been looking forward to this episode. Should be lots of quoteable moments, like when he starts talking about deaf people and their soft skulls.
Viva Hate- August 16, 2010 at 7:46 am
Also according to Tito he never lost to Chuck, he never lost to Forrest, he is rolling with momentum over the last 4 years, he has perfect interview skills, his website is run with a state of the art computer system known as a Commodore 64, he does not have a freakishly oversized head, his wife is not a former porn star whore with a gaping baby hole, he is the poster boy for the UFC, and he is the most likeable fighter ever to participate in MMA.

The man speaks the truth people.

Of course you cant get knocked out Tito.. but don't make us ask Roger Huerta to curb stomp your ass.
