Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz expects Forrest Griffin to be his final fight with the promotion on July 7, and he hinted his future could be in the WWE.

In his prime Ortiz defended the 205lb belt more times than any other before or after him. A devastating ground-and-pound exponent, the Huntington Beach Bad Boy became one of the most popular figures in the sport.

However, a run of injuries has led to him winning just one of his last eight fights, and it is widely expected that he will bow out against Griffin. The pair have won one fight each, so this settles the trilogy.

"It's my final hurrah, Forrest brings the best out of me and vice-versa, and on July 7 we're gonna get some late fireworks," Ortiz told ESPN.

"I've had some major surgeries but I took the fights anyway, and I've shown that I'm able to compete. A lot of athletes don't compete with injuries, but I have. Those fights with Forrest were tight, and a completion of the trilogy should be the right way to end my career...

He'd screw up the script IMO...and wouldn't be believable either. Last time I saw him on a mic for more than 30 second, this happened.

no way, tito is not WWE material IMO. i think he could probably be a pretty good coach for some up and comers, especially after his retirement when he cant gain anything for himself except to be known as a good coach.

With all the back surgeries Tito has had, pro wrestling is about the worst thing he could do.

All Tito really good do at this point is become an enforcer, bodyguard type, kinda like when Kevin Nash first started out with the Diesel character. I just don't see with his age and past injuries, being a full time guy, WWE is on the road like close to 300 days a year.

I made it to about :56 and I had to turn it off. I can't relive that kind of stupidity.

He can barely speak english as it is......he would turtle up as usual with a mic in his hand doing a Raw or Smackdown show.

Plus they say the camera adds 10 pounds to your head

Ortiz is WAY too small to do WWE and make it look right. Those guys average 6'6" and 280lbs. Ortiz is 6'2" and 230ish.
