UFC veteran Tito Ortiz is complaining that the organization isn’t promoting him properly, and as expected, UFC president Dana White didn’t take too kindly to the accusation.

As much as I hate everybody hating on Tito... I agree that he is being over promoted for this fight. There are two titles on the line, who cares about Tito ******* Ortiz.

Also Dana White gets too much hate. Imagine Kobe Bryant's response if Jerry Buss called him a moron. Kobe would probably sit out the season. White says what everyone else wants to say, but is to scared to do so.

We need more people who just tell it like it is in sports like Rogan and White.

I think Tito will still resign with the UFC. He makes more money fighting there.

Correction, he made more money there. There is no evidence that Dana will still give him the share of PPV sales as he has done in the past, especially with Tito's loss to Liddell. I have a feeling he might get a sweet deal from Bodog or Elite. But we shall see. Tito's a big draw, Dana should be careful.

You know I always liked making fun of Tito's giant head but it never really seemed that huge, but the picture in that article is ludicrous. Is his head really that out of proportion?

Re-sign. I think he makes more money there because he can Promote his clothing line more there than in any other org. If he headlines a card and gets back into title contention then I thinbk he will get PPV bonuses. If not , he may leave, but I think it would only be a sign that he was on the downswing if he did. We will know more after we see how he looks against Rashad.

I wouldn't doubt that would be Tito's last fight with the UFC, especially if he wins against Rashad.

It's all about Tito. They should just have a 24 hour Tito channel called, "All Tito, All the Time." 2 belts all the line when he fights and they aren't promoting him enough.

I'm so tired of his "Poor me" act. Time for the UFC to let Tito move on. Become someone else's headache.

Tito makes his money from the UFC, the UFC makes money from Tito. I don't see him leaving unless he continues to lose.

With Big Nog in the UFC. Cro Cop. Rampage. Ninja. Talk of Fedor. Chuck. You got Franklin and Hughes. Tito can be pushed aside. After the UFC fans get to watch Henderson, Fedor, Big Nog etc. etc. fight, they'll get really bored with the way Tito fights.

IMHO i think Tito can beat most of the Chuteboxe guys. I dont think you can push aside a guy like that. But only time will tell....

Is he a headache to you? Do you think he is really that big of a headache to Dana? I don't think Dana loses any sleep over it.

With the way Tito runs his mouth all the time, yes, he is a headache to Dana. All his crying. The boxing match fiasco. The ducking of Chuck. Leaving the UFC and then coming back. Imagine all the behind the scenes antcis he pulls that we never hear about.

Is he a headache for me? No. I ignore him completely. I love watching him lose.
His "Me, me ,me" act does get old
