Tito Ortiz heads to UFC Hall of Fame, retirement

Posted by Levine Communications Office on June 20, 2012

Tito Ortiz was talking a few hours after Hall of Fame-bound running back LaDainian Tomlinson announced his retirement.
Tomlinson called it quits Monday by signing a ceremonial one-day contract with the San Diego Chargers and leaving the game for good.
Ortiz is planning to leave the mixed martial arts stage as well, but he’ll do so not in a bow tie like Tomlinson, but after a third slugfest with his rival Forrest Griffin July 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
“This is my chance to end up on top,” Ortiz, 37, said in a telephone interview from his Big Bear training compound. “I’ve put in seven weeks of hard work up here to make sure I’ll be at my best.
“It’s nice to be injury free. No neck or back problems. I know Forrest is confident too. I know it’ll be a great fight – exactly how I want to go out. With an opportunity to show how good I really am.”
Ortiz will also be inducted into the Ultimate Fighting Championship Hall of Fame the weekend of the fight, a tribute to his longevity, popularity and skill that made the Huntington Beach High and hyped “Huntington Beach Bad Boy” a magnet who drew fans to the once-underground sport.
