411Mania Interviewed Tito Ortiz. He talks a lot about his upcoming fight with Rashad Evans, his preparation for the fight and his future with the UFC. There is a brief discussion about a possible Fighters Union, which Ortiz said he wouldn't mind running.

As much as giving the fighters more money sounds, it is not a good thing overall. If they start giving everyone huge money then they will not be able to keep every single superstar. They'd have to pick which stars to have and the rest would go elsewhere. Right now they get paid poorly, but we get dream matchups. Sucks for the fighters but it's great for us.

Plus, all unions suck and should be abolished.

I would really like to see the union happen,Dana White takes advantages of the fighters and does not pay them enough.i think ortiz would be the perfect candidate to run this operation.

Since Tito's not well liked by a lot of fighter's I disagree. I think Couture when he retires would be best. He actaullly mentioned this on the beatdown right after the Sylvia fight. He said it would have to be someone with nothing to lose. Since he would be at the end of his career, it would make sense. Plus, everyone likes and trust him, except for maybe Tito

Tito likes Couture, I think it's Couture that doesn't like Tito. I wouldn't mind them having another fight. But at the same time I think Tito needs to train with Couture and learn from him in order to take his wrestling to the next level.
