Tito Ortiz sells PPVs — even if his skull is broken and is in need of multiple surgeries. Now that his injury issues are out of the picture for now, Lil Nog has enlisted to attempt to sever Ortiz’s consciousness with concussion-inducing blows . While there hasn’t been the same number of fighters wanting to fight or knock him out since he lost the belt, Little Nog isn’t really one to discriminate. It might be a while out from UFC 140, but it’s never too early to start hyping a fight. The Nogueira brothers obviously follow my school of thought, as Minotouro had this to say about the fight to TATAME.
“If I can avoid the ground game and try to knock him out, I will try… I’ll go after him and try the knockout, but if the fight goes to the ground I’ll be ready”
If there’s one thing that all of us over at MiddleEasy Towers like it’s ‘Guy who had a cracked skull’ vs. ‘Guy who cracks skulls’ match-ups in MMA, especially when the roles could totally reverse in the cage. It makes MMA-Japan.com all warm and fuzzy inside because it reminds them of PRIDE. [Source]
