Tito Ortiz will call it a career at UFC 148, but before he faces Forrest Griffin in the cage he will be honored as the ninth person inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.

UFC president Dana White confirmed the news to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday.

I'm glad Dana can put their history behind him and do this. Ortiz is more than deserving imo. He was a dominate champ during the dark ages of the UFC and was THE guy. Sure the competition wasn't as good and he kinda became a joke as of late but if that was what we put these guys in for then why is Mark Coleman in? You got this right Zuffa

Makes about as much sense as Brock being inducted.

Good for Tito.

It would have sucked not to be inducted because of a personal vendetta

while it would be nice to see him go out with a win, the Griffin fan in me doesn't want it to happen. best case scenario is that the fight is rules a draw

I personally think they are both more than deserving of being in the hall of fame Tito is a former champ who has been around since UFC 13 and Kenny Florian is one of the only fighters I know of in the UFC who has competed in 4 different weight classes, not to mention he fought for the title in 2 of them. I say that makes him hall of fame material but thats just my opinion
