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.

Read entire article...

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.

I think Tito is the ideal person to have this sort of company. At the end of the day, I think he's a really genuine guy who would look out for a fighter's best interest.

I think that goes a long way, even if he isn't the most eloquent spokesman, etc.

Good for you, Tito.

I don't know, the UFC might put pressure on fighters to avoid Tito, it wouldn't be the first time they dissed fighters because of their management.

Golden Glory anyone?

Hope it goes well for him.

I've always liked Tito.

If there was ever a hard worker or a man that deserves success in MMA, then it's him.

  I'd imagine he's hired people that do know about managing fighters...just like Oscar de la Hoya did.

So....Tito complains about Forrest using TRT, and now wants to manage Cyborg who is just coming off of getting busted for steroids?

Sounds about right for Tito "the ridiculous" Ortiz.
