Neck injury forces Tito out of TUF 11 and bout vs Liddell?

A storm of speculation has surrounded the reasoning behind Tito Ortiz‘ recent removal from his expected bout with Chuck Liddell along with a recent coaching gig on the eleventh season of The Ultimate Fighter.

Sources close to the situation have recently indicated to FiveOuncesofPain.com that multiple herniations in the neck of Ortiz prompted his removal from both the taping of The Ultimate Fighter Season 11, and his anticipated clash with fellow coach Liddell at the conclusion of the most recent season.

From what i understand, and what was not caught on video, is that the apparrent homeless guy was initially very rude. its not like Tito was out to just bag on somebody for fun.I have met him myself and he was a gentleman.

I wonder if he had his back fixed, again, after the last fight, when it was supposed to be 100%. On TUF, I like Tito, he's much more real. When he's talking to the media, wow, tough to stomach the nonsense.

Tito was the only MMA fighter who caught the attention of my kids when they were young club wrestlers. I remember my wife bleaching their hair and buying the flamed Punishment shorts and beanies for them, which they wore to many freestyle/greco tournaments. Nothing but good memories for me and my kids - who are now both in college.I've never read anything bad about Tito from fan perspectives, but like I mentioned in another thread, his peers don't seem to care too much for him. Does anyone know why that is?

MMA is tough tough on the body...back in the day Tito just assumed his body could take it... well he found out his body would not hold up....Today training methods are much safer allowing fighters to avoid injury...Just look at Randy Couture for an example of that...Hope Tito gets well... Tito was smart to deversify by founding his clothing company...unfortunately many fighters will not be so lucky...
