Former UFC Light Heavyweght Champ Tito Ortiz

We’re exactly two weeks out from witnessing the deepest fight card of 2010 and one of its main participants appears to be battling some personal issues, in addition to the most rigorous training camp of his controversial career. If you’re one of the 69,000 fans following Tito Ortiz on Twitter, you already know things haven’t been right with “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” outside of the Octagon.

Here are Ortiz’s tweets from late Friday night:

“the biggest betrayal in a relationship is telling lies. The worse is when everything is lost because of them. I’ve gave it my all.

keep my eye on the goal. [Expletive] everything else.

just got done training. going on a run. late night run n BigBear. I’ve never had feelings like this. 🙁 “

The former light heavyweight champion has secluded himself and his Team Punishment entourage up in the thin Big Bear, California air, so Assumption Adam would suggest the drama would have to do with his longtime girlfriend Jenna Jameson. Although, the former adult film star is presently grieving the death of her father and hasn’t recently mentioned any issues with her babies daddy on her Twitter account.

However, Jameson is currently taking orders for her customized bedazzled Polaroid 300 cameras!

Up until last night’s posts, all appeared well with Ortiz as he was approaching his pivotal UFC 121 matchup with Matt Hamill. He even released a picture of his freshly chiseled frame as proof of his rededication. Ortiz remains one of the sport’s most popular and imposing athletes, but has posted a disappointing 0-3-1 mark over his last four outings.

The controversial wrestler suffered a split decision defeat to Forrest Griffin at UFC 106 in November 2009. It marked his second straight loss. Ortiz has sense gone under the knife to repair some discs in his neck, but has clearly put that procedure behind him based off his recent pics.

“UFC 121: Lesnar vs. Velasquez” takes place in Ortiz’s backyard of Anaheim, California on October 23rd. Hopefully he’ll have his mind right by then, otherwise the Gambling Gods will be forced to rethink his +140 status.
