Dana White: Tito tried to damage the UFC more than anyone

Monday, June 18, 2012

UFC President Dana White recently announced that Tito Ortiz will be the next inductee into the UFC Hall of Fame. However, relations between the Huntington Beach Bad Boy and his former manager have had their ups and downs.

The ups including Tito’s popularity being a prime force carrying the organization during its lean years, and the downs detailed in an interview with MMAWeekly

“Tito’s never been about the company of the UFC,” said White. “Tito’s been about his own brand, Punishment, and Tito Ortiz. I think he’s a guy who pound-for-pound—at the time we were hurting—tried to do more damage to [the UFC] than anyone in the history of this company.”
