Tito Ortiz was scheduled to make his Bellator debut in a PPV bout versus Rampage Jackson, unfortunately a serious neck injury forced him out of the bout. Although the injury was considered not only career threatening, but life threatening, Ortiz believes he will be back training in six weeks and still intends to return to the cage:

This week, Ortiz tweeted out to his followers that he's planning on making a return to fighting. And it's sooner than you'd think:

"Ppl I will have 100% recovery & will be back n the gym in 6 weeks.I'm a fighter & I love competition. I was doing great n training but accident do happen. Just time to reshuffle the deck & deal another hand. #positiveminded"

While I respect Ortiz's optimism, he's gotta stop. Stop talking about fighting. Stop talking about making (another) comeback. Stop calling it an accident. Just stop.

And understand, I say all of this not out of malice but out of respect. A respect for what he once was, not the man he's trying to be. And I recognize that there very much is a difference between the two.

Please don't misread these comments, I'm an Ortiz fan.

But what he's doing now just reeks of desperation. He's a literal broken man who is just trying to cling onto past accomplishments for dear life. Maybe it's that he's never been anything but a fighter, but he just can't give up on the idea of being in the spotlight.

High quality Punishment Athletic gear EVERYWHERE all over UFC (and we know sponsorship prices) in the UG store and all other sites and yet you say he's nothing more than a fighter?

Wow, stupid much?

Theres something to be said for someone who quits are the right time. Titos time to quit was years ago. At this point its become a joke that will just continue to get sadder the longer it plays out.
