Tito Ortiz Hints Strikeforce Deal, Wants To Fight Fedor Emelianenko By 2010


The former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz seems to be really happy to not be a part of the UFC.  In a recent interview, Ortiz hinted a possible fight deal with the Strikeforce promotion as he states that it is a deal the UFC could never match.  Not only does he plan on making a huge MMA comeback by fighting top competitors in Strikeforce, but he is also looking forward to fighting #1 heavyweight fighter Fedor Emelianenko sometime in 2010.

Snip from Tito Ortiz:

“Hopefully by October I’ll be competing. We’re finishing the contract I’d say with CBS, Showtime, and Strikeforce and making a deal that UFC can’t match. I feel sorry for the person they have me fight, but I do need one warm-up fight. I managed to come off a huge back surgery. It’s been a year since I’ve competed. I think one warm-up fight to get things going. After that, I don’t want no more warm-up fights. I’m hoping by my fourth fight, possibly fight Fedor Emelianenko at a catchweight. That’d be something that I’m looking forward to possibly by the middle of next year.”
