Following his July 2012 loss to Foffest Griffin, Tito Ortiz announced his retirement from the sport of MMA. Fast foward a year and now out from under any contract with the UFC, Ortiz will return to fight again, this time in Bellator. So what's different now? At least according to Ortiz, it's his health:

“My last surgery was 12 weeks ago. I had an ACL replacement,” said Ortiz.

The ACL replacement was in his right knee. Ortiz had his left knee repaired in the past.

He healed up quickly, however, which made the Bellator deal possible. 

“I was back at it in a month-and-a-half,” recounted Ortiz. “In a month-and-a-half, I was back at it, drilling again. My body heals super, super fast.”

I just feel good. Now I am the million dollar man.”

That's weird. Alex Rodriguez just said the same thing in his post-game press conference.

ACL? At least 8 months to fully recover, sometimes more.

He's been out of fighting for awhile, I wouldn't be surprised if he spent that time using PED's to aid his recovery. I generally against cheating but I have no problem with older athletes using modern medicine to heal better.

LOL.

Came here just for this. Also the excuse is there before the fight even began. Cant wait until its "I came back from a gnarly ACL replacement surgery too fast."

It's having the exact effect Bellator was looking for. The Rampage vs Tito PPV will overshadow anything McUFC's does for the rest of 2013. Phone Post 3.0

You really believe this?

You may be thinking of the phrase "there's no such thing as bad publicity." The idea behind it isn't really that no matter what happens it's good as long as they're still talking about you. The phrase is about the idea that you can turn any story positive if you're creative enough. Most of the talk generated by the announcement has been negative and has dropped Bellator down a notch as a serious MMA organization. While the buzz of having such a freakshow fight might be good in the short term for that one fight, in the long run it may have a negative effect when the promotion wants to do a real MMA ppv.

The stated plan for Bellator was to be a legit mma promotion that was building it's own stable of fighters and it's own identity. But in the last year instead we've seen them rip off TUF and pick up many UFC washout while increasing crossover between non-sports organizations like TNA. Putting two old UFC washouts in as your very first PPV along with cross promoting with TNA is the farthest thing from what their plan was. On the bright-side it still makes 100x more sense then a fight with RJJ. Also you can't really blame them since none of their champs are marketable and their tournament format is losing steam. The in house fighter fans want to see the most is locked in a lawsuit and can't even fight.

Similar to how Tito copied Bobby Hoffman in naming his two fists TNT and dynamite in a smack talk with Couture back in the day Phone Post 3.0

In the 70's there was this guy who worth six times as much, and he wasn't even real.
