Tito vs Dana Still On?

Tito’s time came when he was asked to come back to the UFC and coach “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show pitted against his old rival Ken Shamrock. Ortiz also received a three-fight contract. Written into the contract was a three-round exhibition boxing match against none other than Dana White.

Many thought it was a joke at first, but it was indeed real. When the fight was postponed, it fueled the fire of doubt.

Ortiz told MMAWeekly, “We’re still boxing. He ain’t getting off of that one. We were supposed to make it happen right after the [Ken] Shamrock fight, but the athletic commission in Vegas said we were too far away from weight and we had to find a happy weight, or something like that. I told Dana I would cut down to weight. And then they went back to the athletic commission, and they said it was okay. Then, all of a sudden, the Liddell fight came about. Dana was like, 'Let’s push it off until after the Liddell fight.'”

White previously stated in an interview that he and Ortiz were being filmed and interviewed by documentary filmmakers as they trained for the exhibition boxing match.

When can you expect to see Ortiz and White to go toe-to-toe? According to Tito, “It’s going to happen next year, for sure. A lot of people out there will be waiting to see me beat up on Dana for once. I can’t wait to do it either. I still love Dana a lot. He has helped me out a whole bunch, but that match is still in dire need.”

Closing out the questioning about his exhibition boxing match with Dana White, Tito said, “It’s funny because now Dana is ducking me. He’s finding excuses.”
