Tito Ortiz has took 10 months off to heal his injuries and to play Hollywood, starting in Donald Trumps “The Apprentice”.
“My last fight, before I fought Rashad (Evans), I wasn’t 100%, and I just wanted to make sure if I ever fight again I’m going to be 100%,” Ortiz told MMAWeekly. “The back injury that I sustained kind of hindered me for fight time. Now it’s a lot better, and May will be my next fight.”
“I spoke to Lorenzo (Fertitta), and it looks like in May,” said the former UFC light heavyweight champion . “They’re going to wait until May, so the next Cinco de Mayo weekend will be Tito Ortiz’ next fight.”
“I really want to fight at 100%. I’m making these guys look good when I’m not 100%. When I had the draw with Rashad, I should have never did that. I should have beat him, but it’s all right. We’ll do it again. I just want to make sure I’m 100% before all of my fights so I don’t let any of my fans down when I lose or if I get a draw or something like that because I felt like I let my fans down and myself down, and I don’t want to let that happen.”
