Trash talker extraordinaire Tito Ortiz will step in and face Rashad Evans at UFC 133 on August 6th and after Evans stated in a recent interview that Ortiz was lucky to beat Ryan Bader at UFC 132, Ortiz took offense to the remark in his blog on ESPN.com and explained why Rashad Evans won't be able to beat him and why he isn't as good a trash talker:
“I invented this role of the s— talker in the UFC. I was the first guy to do this and blow up because of it. I talked a ton of s— about a lot of guys before fights to get attention and to establish my name and my Punishment brand. But I backed it up. All those title wins, being champion for longer than anyone else … and even the fights I did lose, I still backed up what I had been saying.
Now Rashad's taking over that role. He talks a lot of crap, but I don't think Rashad backs his big mouth up like I did mine. Rashad isn't me of course … I am the longest-reigning UFC 205-pound champion ever, and he couldn't hold on to the belt for one defense.
He talked a lot about my friend Quinton Jackson, but he didn't want to fight when it was time to go into the Octagon.
Now he's making a big mistake talking about me being “lucky” to beat Bader and get this fight with him. His ass can't cash this check.
