Despite proclaiming earlier this month that he had signed a “record breaking” contract with Affliction Entertainment, former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz is once again negotiating with multiple MMA promotions, reports MMAjunkie.com’s Dann Stupp in his latest column for the Dayton Daily News.

Stupp reports that Ortiz is talking to the usual suspects such as Affliction and EliteXC but also adds that the Kentucky-based American Fight League is making a play for his services and that even talks are taking place between Ortiz and the UFC.

Hmmm if Ortiz doesnt sign with anyone maybe I will try to pick him up.....I mean I could pay him to punch random people on the streat and pit him against homeless guys for food.....its wouldnt be lucrative contract by any means but hey....he would finally be a champ again...

“I don’t know if we’re really negotiating, or simply helping Tito stroke his giant ego,” an unnamed fight company representative is quoted as saying in Stupp’s article.

lol.

This is hilarious to me. Tito is such an ass...which is realy a shame because the guy is a good fighter when his head is in the game.....Tito and Randy are both asking for crazy amounts of money.....consequently...both are still looking for contracts.....perhaps big bad dana white wasn't just screwing his fighters after all and maybe, just maybe, the grass isn't always greener on the other side. I hope Tito gets a solid contract somewhere and keeps fighting, but if he's not careful he'll soon be two or three years down the road and absolutely nobody will be in the Tito Ortiz business.

I think that it would be a dumb move for affliction to sign Tito. It would in turn be like supporting the competition. Here lately it seems all Tito really is fighting for is to get his clothing company (PA) some recogniton and for affliction which is a clothing company trying to promote mma not an mma org selling t-shirts. Just my view on the record breaking affliction deals tito has in his back pocket

Poor Tito! Maybe he can get a spot on the next season of Celebrity Mole.
