Tito Ortiz Details Training, Preparation For UFC 73 Fight


The following is a blog message posted on the official MySpace account of former UFC Light Heavyweight champion, “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” Tito Ortiz:

The time has come!!!!!!

Well the time has come once again. One week till fight time. I am ready more now, then I have ever been before. I think this will be the fight of the year, I will put it all out on the line.

I just finished my last hard day of training and I feel great. I 've been doing five 6 mins rounds with 30 sec rest in between and my weight is perfect at 219. Every day I'm running 3 miles in 19.36 with my recovery in 30 seconds… Believe me I'm ready for war.

He wants to fight the best Tito Ortiz? Well he got what he wished for! I'm very excited to fight. I'm fighting for the fan that support me. I'm fighting to shut his mouth. And I'm fighting to show I'm here to stay!!!!!!

I want to thank all the fans and friends that support me for all of my fights. I am going to prove that I have never lost my edge. 7-7-07 The PUNISHING of Rashad Evans will be the beginning!!!
