Tito “Huntington Beach Bad Boy” Ortiz is currently training for his upcoming UFC 106 fight against Mark “The Hammer” Coleman. The hard-hitting Mexican-American fighter will be making his Octagon return on November 21st after dropping a unanimous decision to Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida back in May of 2008. Ortiz seems confident coming into UFC 106 as he plans on making another run for the light heavyweight title.
From Tito Ortiz:
“I’m gonna crush him. I’m gonna push the tempo like he’s never had the tempo pushed against him. I watched him fight Fedor Emelianenko. I watched how afraid he was to stand with him. Let’s see if he wants to stand with me. I’m not afraid of him. To me he’s more of a mummy and less of a ‘Hammer.’ He started about a year-and-a-half before I started my career, and I see him as a ground and pound specialist. My own forte is to kind of take guys down and ground and pound them. Give the fans what they want to see. That’s what I do.”
