Tito Ortiz launches MMA management company

by Jerry Sullivan | source: ocbj.com
 

Jacob “Tito” Ortiz, who held the Ultimate Fighting Championship light-heavyweight title for three years, has started a sports-management agency in Huntington Beach, Calif.

The launch of Primetime 360 Entertainment & Sports Management Inc. comes about a month after Ortiz was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame. George Prajin, an attorney and longtime friend of Ortiz’, is a partner in the agency, which will seek to represent mixed martial arts fighters as well as other athletes and artists.

Primetime 360 launched with several mixed martial arts fighters as clients, including Brazilian Christiane “Cyborg” Santos, who is about halfway through a one-year suspension handed down by the California State Athletic Commission for using performance-enhancing drugs, and Rob Emerson, who won a bout at the Orange County Fairground last week to improve to 13-10, also is in the cast of The Ultimate Fighter 5.

In other Tito news, The People's Champion recently appears on FUEL's Roundtable legends, and related a conversation with UFC matchmaker Joe Silva, about how the light heavyweight division was created for him.

Joe Silva: Tito, what is a perfect weight for you?"
Tito: I'm weighing about 215. 205 would be perfect. Cut 10 pounds. Perfect.
Joe Silva: Cool. We're making the weight class 205 then.

Great spot for Tito IMO, he has always stood up for fighters pay etc. and even got shit on for it which is hilarious looking back.

This should be entertaining at least :) Though why is every 'yay Tito' paired with a 'oh tito'?

 Indeed if only other fighters had that same degree of self control in other aspects of their lives, be that alcohol, money laundering, playing with underage BJJ students, setting off fire extinguishers in churches, getting horrendous tattoos, Tito should be a inspiration to them all.

A man with the self control to delay the gratification of hundreds of fans for three years is exactly what this sport needs

 Rule #3: typing a single character for a group of ravenous fans could be interpreted as a sign of weakness

 Rule #1: always leave them wanting more Rule #2: if you never give them anything, they will always want more until they either die of starvation or lose interest in which case they never deserved to be called your fans because true love is eternal and unconditional #business101
