Tito Ortiz Steps Down as Cris Cyborg’s Manager
(mmaweekly.com)
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.

UFC Vet Marcus Davis Heads into Saturday’s Grudge Match with Retirement on His Mind
(mmaweekly.com)
Former UFC welterweight Marcus “Irish Hand Grenade” Davis would like to call a mulligan on 2013. It was just that type of year in his fight career. After starting off the year with a controversial stoppage against Waachiim Spiritwolf in Bellator in March, Davis returned home to Main and got his only win of the year against Darrius Heylinger in May in the NEF, only to see his momentum swiftly halted by one of the worst losses of his career in the first round of last year’s Bellator 155-pound tournament. “2013 started out tough with that no contest versus (Waachiim) Spiritwolf, which became a big thing on the internet with all these people saying this stuff, even after the commission (representative) said he didn’t find any groin contact and that he actually had a panic attack. So I thought it would be overturned and it wasn’t,” said Davis looking back on last year. “That was a rough start, but to come back and get a win over a kid like Darrius Haylinger, who is over six feet tall and having a reach and being as good a striker that he is was a great thing for me. I never had any real luck at 155 pounds and I don’t have that frame, and I really, really wanted it bad, but (my fight against Sarnavskiy) was a really horrible performance and wasn’t there.”
