The career of Tito Ortiz spans 15 years. At his peak he was the UFC lightheavyweight champion, the sport's biggest PPV draw, and more. He proved that mixed martial arts could be viable, at a point where its future was in doubt. In now small way, he carried MMA.

As the caliber of the athlete has markedly improved, as exemplified by current lightheavyweight champion Jon Jones, Tito's skill have fallen just, barely, short. He has gone 1-5 his last six fights, although many of them were highly competitive.

After losing to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in the first round at UFC 140 in Dec. 10, many fans thought that was the end.

It's not. Tito wants one more fight, n July 4th, against Forrest Griffin or Chuck Liddell. As Liddell is firmly retired, that would leave a rubber match with fellow ex lightheavyweight champion Forrest Griffin as the most likely scenario.

Please not against Forrest. That fight was terrible last time, who really thinks it will be more exciting or exciting at all this time?

The funny thing is that I have no desire to see either Tito *or* Forrest fight again.

It angers me he would throw Chuck's name out there, knowing that the man is retired and the only reason he could possibly beat him is the fact that Chuck's chin is gone.

I agree. Go out with a front kick to the face resulting in your teeth flying out of the octagon!

I personally want to see Tito's last fight. Hes been entertaining us for years to not want to see him in his last ever MMA bout just seems ridiculous to me!!!!!

Thanks for the EPIC CAREER TITO

I'd rather him just retire. Not interest in seeing him fight Forrest who he pretty much lost to twice, even Chuck would still beat him.

Let Alexander Gustafsson tear him up for his last fight. I've enjoyed watching most of his fights over the years but i'm glad he's ready to call it a day. it's gotta be hard leaving behind something you love but he hasnt looked that great in the past few years. .i dont want to see him fight Chuck or Forrest again. I wouldnt mind seeing him fight Shogun maybe. 2 vet's going at it.
