Now that Tito Ortiz isn’t paralyzed, he feels good going into UFC 121

Now that Tito Ortiz isn’t paralyzed, he feels good going into UFC 121

Yes, 3.0. Tito upgraded to 2.0 about two years ago (prior to his fight with Forest Griffin) when he underwent surgery for his lower back; a two-level spinal fusion. Unfortunately Tito 2.0 wasn’t much of an upgrade at all, according to the only guy to date a former porn star and break-up with her on a weekly basis via Twitter.

“I got bounced on my head, trying to take down one of my friends inside the Octagon that I have in my house up here in Big Bear. I got bounced on my neck. Arms and legs went completely numb. Scared me. I laid on the floor for about a good minute and a half. I was completely paralyzed for about a minute and a half.

Slowly but surely my feeling came back to my arms, came back to my legs, and I was able to stand up. I’d never felt that feeling before. I had severe achiness to my neck, and I kind of realized that I had a ruptured disc in my neck.

…I got through a physical for the UFC and I fought with a fractured orbital bone and a ruptured disc in my neck.”

While everyone has been celebrating Brocktoberfest, Ortiz upgraded to 3.0 after having another two-level fusion, this time in his upper neck. Hamill, on the other hand, comes off of two wins, the most notable being the upset over previously undefeated Jon Jones. Hamill was the first fighter to not only defeat Jon Jones, but to defeat him while being elbowed in the face. I’m not sure how to spell ‘baller’ in sign language, but I assume it’s different than the sign language Greg Jackson gave the referee. [Source]
