Tito Ortiz: “Finishing year with KO of the night against Lil Nog”

By the sound of it Tito Oriz is not lacking confidence by any means coming into his bout against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 140.  The newly titled “Peoples Champ,” says he would like to test the former amateur boxers stand-up.

“I just came off a fight against Rashad  which I lost, and got fight of the night. Of course I came off the fight with Ryan Bader, and got submission of the night. so let’s finish the year off with knockout of the night. I’ve been working on my stand-up a whole lot. I want to test Nogueira’s stand-up. I want to see how good his snap really is. People say how great it is, I see looping punches. Lets see if we can fire right down the middle.”

Ortiz and Nogueira will both be looking to rebound from a recent loss in the Octagon. Lil’ Nog suffered back to back decision losses to wrestling specialist Phil Davis and Ryan Bader. Ortiz shocked many with a triumphant return victory over Ryan Bader via submission at UFC 132, then lossing to former champion Rashad Evans as a last minute replacement at UFC 133.
