Former UFC light heavyweight champion and UFC Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz stepped down as Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino‘s manager effectively immediately.

Ortiz appeared on “Inside MMA” on AXS TV on Friday and announced the development citing his eroded relationship with UFC president Dana White.

“I can live with Dana not liking me, but what I can’t live with is Dana using me to hurt someone else. I’ve taken abuse and maybe I deserved some of it, but Cris is a beautiful person and great athlete and doesn’t deserve to be insulted like this.

I know there is a lot of Tito hate, but this was kind of cool of him if what he says is true. If Dana does hold some Tito grudges still (which I am sure he does), then having him out of the picture may actually help Cyborg. For now, my opinion is whatever makes the Rousey v Cyborg fight happen makes me happy.

Wasn't the whole reason for an unproven manager in Tito signing Cyborg just a back handed way of saying "f you" to Dana anyways? Cyborg needs an attitude change, a better manager and Mike Dolce and that belt around Rousey's waist is all hers.
