The Huntington Beach Bad Boy, Tito Ortiz is best known for his antics outside the cage leading up to a fight. He is the MMA face of trash talk for sure. At the recent UFC 109 Relentless event Tito and Mark had an exchange of words and it was personal according to Ortiz.
Directly after Coleman’s loss to Couture, the crushed Coleman walked away from an after fight interview with Joe Rogan while Tito was heckling him from cage side. Tito claims that it was retaliation from what Coleman’s manager was saying about Tito’s girl Jenna Jameson.
Mike DiSabato [Coleman’s Manager]:
“The only thing Coleman is afraid of when it comes to Tito is contracting swine flu from that dirty ass d-bag. We all know where he lays his head down at night. Tito wants to get personal with a legend? OK, let’s get personal – we can all go to our porn collections and watch what Tito sleeps with night after night.”
However, Dibato is claiming what he said was retaliation for Tito calling Coleman a “sissy” for pulling out of their scheduled UFC 106 fight. Coleman reportedly was forced to pull out of his bout with Tito due to an injury.
This all being said, Tito is going to talk trash – it’s what he does and it sells his fights. Dana White has said it to, Tito is a master self promoter, he knows how to bring mass attention to his fights. But to attack a mans wife who has nothing to do with MMA is definitely taking it to a level it shouldn’t go, so I for one don’t blame Tito for his retaliation.
