Former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz will be inducted into the UFC’s Hall of Fame this weekend, and will also make his retirement fight against Forrest Griffin at UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen 2.
The UFC made the induction of Ortiz official through a recent press release.
It is a huge honor to be recognized as one of the greatest fighters of all time by the UFC. To be inducted into the Hall of Fame is final proof that all the hard work and dedication, all the pain and sacrifices, were all worth it. To be able to walk to the Octagon one last time as an official UFC Hall of Fame-level fighter is going to be humbling and awesome. I’m very grateful to have this opportunity to end my career on such a high like this.
Ortiz joins Matt Hughes, Charles “Mask” Lewis, Mark Coleman, Royce Gracie, Ken Shamrock, Dan Severn, Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture as members of the hall.
