Tito tweets, deletes interest in Bellator


38 year old UFC Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz retired following a Fight of the Night winning loss to Forrest Griffin on July 7, 2012 at UFC 148. He recently took to Twitter and indicated he was interested in fighting again, notably letting both the UFC and Bellator parent company Viacom know about it

Tito Ortiz ‏@titoortiz
Fighting is starting to sound fun again. ??????#Peopleschamp #comeback #Positive body is almost healed. @Punishment99 @ufc @Viacom @MTV @espn

The final tweet was deleted, and included an image of the doormat at Bellator's corporate offices, which reads 5000 Birch. The Newport Beach, California address is near Ortiz's home. Bellator recently signed Tito's longtime friend Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson.

Ortiz was ambiguous in a text exchange with MMA Fighting, reply to a question about whether he was considering a comback by saying "everyone has a comeback." When asked if he was healthy enough to fight, Ortiz replied "we will see in five months."

That could of course mean Tito will be healed and ready to train in five months, or it could be mean he will be fighting in five months.

In the meantime Tito is in Kansas City, Missouri for Invicta 6, headlined by his management client Cris 'Cyborg' Santos, who fights Marloes Coenen for the organization's Inaugural Featherweight Title.

"Looking for a hot Dorthy in Kansas ??" tweeted Ortiz.

What do you think UG? You want to see The People's Champ give it one more shot?

No, not issues or beef, just watching the back and forth between them vying for fighters would be a word salad of epic proportions. Both have huge personalities and bigger egos.
