HUNTINGTON BEACH BAD BOY PREPARES FOR OPPORTUNITY TO PUNCH HIS BOSS IN THE FACE

SPIKE TV’S PREVIEW SPECIAL “THE COUNTDOWN TO DANA WHITE VS TITO ORTIZ” PREMIERES THURSDAY, APRIL 12 AT 11:00 PM

UFC President To Take On Top Light Heavyweight In Three Round Boxing Match Which Debuts Saturday, April 14 at www.UFC.com

New York , NY , March 22, 2007 — UFC light heavyweight Tito Ortiz prepares to live the American dream of punching his boss in the face as Spike TV presents a behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming three round boxing match between Ortiz and UFC President, and former amateur boxer, Dana White. The 90 minute special premieres Thursday, April 12 (11:00 PM — 12:30 AM, ET/PT). The fight will be aired exclusively on UFC.com beginning Saturday, April 14.

THE COUNTDOWN TO DANA WHITE VS TITO ORTIZ examines how this sparring match came to be: White’s stint as Oritz’s manager, the bad blood that arose between them after White stopped representing Ortiz to work for the UFC, and Ortiz leaving the UFC for more than a year before returning with this bout stipulated in his contract.

The special also takes an in depth look at the preparation White has undertaken over the past six months to get back into fighting shape — adding two hour training sessions and meetings with a nutritionist to his daily routine of overseeing the world’s preeminent mixed martial arts organization.

During the 90 minute special, UFC superstars Kendall Grove, Chuck Liddell, Jens Pulver, Rich Franklin, and Randy Couture all add their thoughts and predictions for the bout, which premieres Saturday, April 14 exclusively at www.UFC.com
