Despite Rumors, Ortiz vs. Machida Is Still On For UFC 84

Chris Fries from the former MMANews.com radio program “The Lights Out Show” sent along the following:

Contrary to Babalu’s comments, Ortiz vs Machida is ON!

In a follow up to an earlier report which stated that Babalu said he “…heard that Tito [Ortiz] is not going to fight him anymore, so they are going to have to find another opponent for [Lyoto] Machida.”, Chris Fries and The JDH of Tagg Radio’s The Lights Out Show personally talked to Ed Soares , Machida ‘s manager, to verify the story. He said that he spoke to Joe Silva (UFC matchmaker), and Joe said that there is a signed contract “in-hand” and the fight was a GO. Soares confirms that as well. To hear the whole story, along with an interview with Strikeforce VP, Mike Afromowitz, listen to Tuesday’s The Lights Out Show on the Tagg Radio Network — live 5:00 p.m. PST on www.taggradio.com. Archived shows also available there.
