It has been speculated on for quite some time as to when Tito Ortiz will retire from MMA but it appears “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” has made the decision himself and has decided upon July 4th weekend as the final time he will step into the Octagon.
Ortiz discussed his final bout over the weekend with The Middle Easy, and also talked about who he wants to see across the cage from him in that fight:
“After the fight against Nogueira, you know I got hit in the body, no broken ribs, so I was very stoked. A little bruised, my heart hurts more than I think my body does, but it's one of those things that happen as a fighter. You know some win and some lose, just as long as I can walk away knowing that I learned something from it. July, hopefully Fourth of July weekend I will be fighting my last fight and I will be done. That's it; it's time to walk away. You know, Forrest, or I know everybody would like to see me against Chuck (Liddell) and, I don't know. We will see what Lorenzo and Dana have to offer and see what they want to do. I'll sit down with Lorenzo and Dana next week and let's see, let's make a fight, my last fight and let's make a memorable one. “
