Tito Ortiz is ready to step back in the Octagon. He will have a tough test ahead of him when he does, as he has agreed to face Ryan Bader at UFC 132 in July.

Sources close to the fight confirmed the bout to MMAWeekly.com on Monday.

Tito Ortiz (15-8-1) will not only be fighting Ryan Bader in July, he will literally be fighting for his UFC career. The former light heavyweight champion is currently on a three-fight losing streak, but UFC president Dana White said he would give him one more chance to prove himself, and this is it.

Goodbye Ortiz.

Pretty bad matchup for Ortiz, I doubt he will be able to take Bader down and will prolly lose the stand up aswell and will be slower than Bader.

One of the worst match-ups possible for Ortiz. They must want to embarass him before they drop him.

This...but the exact opposite. I think Bader will drop Tito with a big right hand and follows it up with ground 'n pound to finish him off.

We should have a pool trying to predict not only when Tito pulls out of the fight, but what kind of injury he'll cite as his excu...I mean reason.

yep I think thats it for old Tito, Bader is realy just a faster version of him with harder punches and fewer injuries, anyone think Tito will end up in Strikeforce?
