GIVING BUT NOT TAKING
Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter, Tito Ortiz, came into the studio to talk about his career, especially his upcoming December 30th Light Heavyweight title bout against Chuck Liddell, and his love life. Tito said no one has ever died in a UFC match,
and added this was because there is always a referee in the ring to make sure no one is seriously harmed, and that fighters had the option of “tapping out.” Tito went on to say he once knocked out an opponent 29 seconds into their match, and that he never experienced a “terrible beating” of his own.
COMPUTERS ARE GOOD THINGS
Tito reported he wrestled in college, and trained six-to-eight hours a day six days a week. Despite his regimen, Tito claimed he was worried about getting out of shape, noting he liked going to Las Vegas quite a bit. Tito then mentioned Jenna Jameson contacted him through MySpace earlier this year, and that they started dating after she attended one of his fights. Tito proceeded to claim he was never intimidated by Jenna’s sex life, and added that, although he was in love with her, he didn’t plan on tying the knot anytime soon seeing as he had just gotten out of a seven-year marriage.
AND BABY MAKES THREE
Howard wondered if Jenna brought women into bed for Tito, but he said she hasn’t. In fact, Tito also reported that Jenna wasn’t doing porn anymore either, a fact which he took into consideration when they first started dating. Tito
added he knew Jenna was “clean,” and that he didn’t wear a condom when they had sex. When Howard asked Tito if Jenna was on birth control, he responded he thought she was, but that he wouldn’t have a problem having kids with her if she wasn’t.
JUST HAPPY TO BE HERE
Tito said both his parents became addicted to heroin when he was 6 years old, and that he was “amazed” he was still alive after all he endured with them. Tito then remembered watching both his parents shoot up in front of him, which he acknowledged he’ll never forget. Tito also noted he had “hatred” toward his father, but that he and his mother had reestablished their relationship in recent years. Tito added he introduced his mom to Jenna two weeks ago, while acknowledging he might contact his father in the near future so they could straighten out their difficulties.
IT SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME
Although Tito was now clean, he acknowledged he used to use drugs himself, but it was his parents’ negative example and witnessing a friend of his get shot in a drug deal that made him quit that lifestyle. Tito then reported he was in a gang at the time as well, and was only able to leave the gang after being beaten up by his former fellow gang members. Tito proceeded to insist he never physically harmed anyone as a gang member, with stealing being the worst crime he ever committed.
EVERYONE’S A BIG TALKER
Tito admitted he cried before each of his bouts, and that he figured it was a way of releasing the fear from his body. Tito next commented he was an emotional person in every aspect of his life, mentioning he even wept when he watched “Forrest Gump.” As Tito discussed his training and eating habits, Robin asked him to remove his shirt, which he did. Tito then mentioned he had a 4-year-old son, and “pled the Fifth” when Howard asked if either he or Jenna was into “tossing salad.”
After Angry Black called in to claim he could beat Tito in a fight, he responded he was used to such challenges, but he never took them seriously. Tito added he felt he could defeat Chuck Zito, who has announced he plans on joining the UFC, in a fight in “five seconds,” also insisting Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis wouldn’t last much longer in the ring with him either. Scott Ferrall then called in to ask Tito to be sure to bring Jenna with him to their interview later tonight and mentioned he would have a world exclusive interview with Choppers Inc. owner, Billy Lane about his involvement in an automobile accident that took the life of another man
