Tito Ortiz has been keeping very busy. The longtime mixed martial artist and former UFC champ has his mind set on getting another bout whether it be in a cage or a boxing ring.
Ortiz has tried everything from getting one over on longtime nemesis Chael Sonnen to Jake Paul.
And he’s really determined to make it happen. Tito’s latest call out is targeting Cuban superstar Yoel Romero.
“𝐓𝐈𝐓𝐎 𝐎𝐑𝐓𝐈𝐙🆚𝐘𝐎𝐄𝐋 𝐑𝐎𝐌𝐄𝐑𝐎🇨🇺
🎞Almost a year ago, the Latin American organization Combate Americas wanted to organize this meeting in the weight category up to 205 lbs., But all plans were cut short and the idea was forgotten.
♻️Almost a year later, there is a second opportunity to organize this fight, which will be to the liking of many spectators. Two veterans, two legendary fighters of their time can come together in battle. What could be better?”
Romero might be 45 years old but he’s still active – and still more than intimidating presence.
He is currently booked to face Melvin Manhoef at Bellator 285 in September.
At random times I think about Anderson Silva knockout out Tito Ortiz and it puts a smile on my face lol

Meanwhile Ortiz might want to hang on to whatever is left of his brain health.
“It’s never over and I think I made that mistake with the UFC when I said I’ll never fight for the UFC ever again,” Ortiz said while speaking to Helen Yee Sports. “And now that I think about it, that’ll be an amazing last fight for myself and for Shogun Rua.”
Ortiz had briefly switched to a career in politics but was quickly forced to resign when it was confirmed he had tried to file for unemployment benefits – while being employed and paid by the Huntington Beach city council. Ever since he resigned he tried to provide tutelage to fellow UFC vet running for office, BJ Penn.
