Tito Ortiz denies Jenna Jameson's allegations, turns focus to custody battle
UFC Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz (16-11-1 MMA, 15-11-1 UFC) takes a deep breath before he answers. Long one of the most outspoken men in the sport of MMA, Ortiz briefly considers just how much he wants to reveal. But as he weighs the reality staring up at him on a computer screen, he decides to go all in. "I wasn't going to talk about it, but my kids are down for a nap right now," Ortiz told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I just took an hour nap, myself, because I get up at 6 a.m. every morning, and I take care of these kids Monday through Saturday. I have a nanny that comes in and helps me because Jenna doesn't want to be a mom. She has a problem, and I don't want to bash her because she's the mother of my children. But I've tried to help somebody for the last seven years. I tried to make a family, and it's hard to do that when somebody else doesn't want to contribute. I just look at as I can't help somebody that doesn't want to be helped. She can try and bash me as much as possible. The only thing it's hurting is my children."
