Looks like Tito is stepping up his training regimen with a good old fashioned ice bath. We’ve seen Wanderlei Silva and Minotauro Nogueira dunk their bodies in giant garbage cans full of freezing water without too much trouble — hell, Wand even likes it — but Tito didn’t handle it quite as well, at least at first. You’d think someone was torturing him if you were standing in the adjacent room.
While we’re on the topic of Tito, remember that T-shirt he wore to the UFC 84 weigh-ins that said “Dana is my Bitch!”? Well, thanks to a fan at UFC 103, he now has one that says “Dana is my Bo$$!” He says all the talk about signing with Affliction and Strikeforce was nothing more than a negotiation tactic. He reiterated how smart he is.
“To let all you guys know, I wasn’t going anywhere,” Ortiz said. “I wasn’t going to Strikeforce, I wasn’t going anywhere. That was all negotiating tactics.
“I’m smart. I don’t have managers telling me what to do. I make my own decisions, but it’s all tactics.”
