Today Affliction MMA announced at its “Day of Reckoning” press conference, that former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz has signed on as a commentator for the Jan. 24th Affliction 2 “Day of Reckoning”. Tito will join the play-by-play commentator Sean Wheelock and Jimmy Smith.
â€œThis has nothing to do with me fighting for Affliction … Iâ€™ve been fighting for 11 years, so I think I know a thing or two about fighting.â€
“Iâ€™m actually talking to Tito. We have a great relationship and I really like Tito a lot…But he canâ€™t even fight until July [because of recent back surgery], so at this point it doesnâ€™t really make sense for us to talk about anything.
â€œWe hang out, we talk to each other and if eventually he goes with us, great. If he goes back to the UFC, then I wish him nothing but the best.â€
Who said Titos mouth wouldn’t eventually pay off?
