Ortiz: I’m just waiting for Bellator to call
It has been more than seven months since Tito Ortiz signed with Bellator FC, but he has yet to step inside the Bellator cage. After recovering from his latest injury, now Ortiz is training and ready to fight whenever Bellator asks:
“We spoke with [Bellator],” said Ortiz. “I made the mistake with the UFC of trying to be the middleman, I just left it to my attorneys to deal with [Bellator]. I told them that I want to fight. I told them that I’m ready to go. I left it to them to get it done. I’m just training and waiting for the call [to know who and when I’m fighting].”
As for whom Ortiz will face when he returns, that is still very much up in the air. Although a fight with Rampage would still be a considerable draw for Bellator, Ortiz isn’t targeting anyone in particular. He just wants to fight again.
“When they call, I’m ready. Whoever it is, I don’t care.”
