Despite being a free agent with no MMA home of which to speak, former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz remains a popular pick with sponsors.

In fact, Mickey's Fine Malt Liquor has signed Ortiz to a sponsorship deal, and this week, the company will roll out commemorative Mickey's cans that feature Ortiz's likeness.

Mickey's has provided MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) an exclusive first look at the cans.

"Tito is one of the most talented and popular athletes in the world of mixed martial arts, and Mickey's is thrilled to bring the partnership to life for our fans with this limited-edition can," Mickey's Brand Manager Mike Davitt stated. "Many people have wanted to get their hands on Tito over the years. Well, this is their chance."

Financial terms of the sponsorship deal were not revealed.

"Can" jokes aside, Ortiz (15-6-1) remains one of the sport's most recognizable stars and one of the very top pay-per-view draws in MMA history. However, he's winless in his past three fights, and despite announcing he agreed to a "record-breaking" contract with Affliction earlier this month, Ortiz currently remains a free agent.

The Ortiz cans hit stores this week and will be available through the end of the year.

You could fit a lot of beer in a can shaped like Tito's head

Agreed! i don't see how putting a guy who hasn't won a fight in 2 years on a can is going to help sales. who the hell drinks Mickeys anyway?

How does signing with a promotion and "no MMA home of which to speak" go together? He didnt get the "record breaking" crap he was going for (and didnt deserve), but unless I'm mistaken, he -did- sign with Affliction *shrugs* Accuracy in journalism makes Brock Lesnar's striking look pinpoint.

The Tito Head Keg is freaking hilarious, by the way! If a pony keg = 1/4 keg & a full sized one = 1/2 keg, then what Tito's, like a 2x keg?

The picture on the can on the right looks like WWE wrestler John Cena.

My thoughts exactly! I couldn't think of his name, though.

Is it coincidence that we see Tito and the word "can" in the same sentence?
