Tito Ortiz has accused the UFC of rewriting history, and he’s sort of right…
If Tito Ortiz stated he was the greatest public speaker in MMA history, then one only needs to go to YouTube to see how this isn’t necessarily true. However one can not deny that Tito Ortiz is one of the most prolific light heavyweights that has ever stepped inside the Octagon, and that he has the most light heavyweight wins in the UFC. Surely all one has to do is search on Sherdog or Wikipedia to verify these facts — it’s blatant knowledge that’s available to anyone that does minor digging. Therefore when this graphic showed up on Saturday after Jon Jones win against Glover Teixeira at UFC 172, it’s hard to believe that the research department in the UFC made a mistake. If they did, then I can make the accurate claim that my research abilities are on a higher level than UFC.
This graphic has all the signs of being an intentional move by the UFC to disregard the achievements Tito Ortiz has put forth in the UFC, and Tito Ortiz is pretty damn angry about it.
