Tito Ortiz may have arrived late to the UFC 133 party, but he’s sure making his presence felt now. With only eight days remaining until the curtain is drawn on his rematch with Rashad Evans, “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” recently ignited a heated exchange between the two former light heavyweight champions.
Ortiz and Evans might be meeting in The City of Brotherly Love next Saturday, but there certainly is no love lost between the bitter rivals. Although they were more than cordial with each other during yesterday’s media conference call, things quickly changed once the cameras started rolling.
Whether their verbal spat was an attempt to generate more hoopla for their upcoming pay-per-view main event will be up for you to decide. Either way, the footage is definitely worth 30 seconds of your time.
The 205-pounders fought to a highly controversial draw at UFC 73 in July 2007. They’ll renew their rivalry August 6th inside the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
