Ortiz: I’m like Dana White’s ex-girlfriend
It's no secret there is no love loss between former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz and UFC President Dana White. The two have had a verbal war of words since Ortiz left the UFC over two years ago. In this video, Ortiz responds to comments White has made recently and comments on why he believes he is still featured on UFC Fight Pass:
“It's just childish, very childish with the things that he says. I just continue with my career. When I walked away from them I thought it would be over. But throughout the last two years, it's little things that he would say. Just to bark up a little bit; maybe to get a little more attention. Wasn't he held a lot as a kid or something? What it comes down to, I'm like his ex-girlfriend or something. I'm like his ex-wife, the guy just doesn't leave me alone. It's affecting my fans, it's going to affect my kids in the future, too, when they see the stuff he says about me. Half the stuff is BS. When it comes down to him, it's like, get over it, man. If no one cared, then why would he try to make a point to erase me out of UFC if he didn't care? If no one cares?
He is doing it to try and make a mockery of me and I won't let that happen, I think my fans won't let that happen. Whatever Dana says, bad, good, he's still talking. The week of my fight, they take me off the website, but then they put me, ‘Best of Tito Ortiz' on UFC Fight Pass. Hmmm? It's like, ‘let's don't forget to make an extra penny off Tito Ortiz. Yeah, because we paid him so much money, we made so much money off of him.' It's fine. It just shows the strength my name truly has. I just keep a smile on my face. They're still thinking about me, they ain't going to get rid of me, they can try as much as they want.”
