Tito Ortiz confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that is not coming back to the UFC.
Me going to somewhere else is 100% happening.
Later on after the fight was over, I was sitting down going over the loss, I think that’s when it really touched me that that’s going to be my last time walking out for the UFC. It’s really hard to say, but the president, the way he treats me, I can’t continue on with them. He’s a monster and I’m going to go elsewhere where they respect me.
No, I’m not going back to the UFC, I don’t want to. I can sleep now and not worry about what’s going to be said about me. I don’t have to worry about what I have to say to make sure I say the right thing. I’m sick of kissing ass and I’m not doing it anymore.
Tito stated after his loss to Lyoto Machida at UFC 84 that he would take the next few weeks to mull over his decision to stay or go, which was a departure from his stance that he wasn’t coming back in the weeks leading up to the fight. It appears he’s changed his tune again, so don’t be surprised if he changes his mind one more time and ends up staying after all.
