Thread: Hey PJ, when can we expect Tito to sign somewhere?

    I heard Babalu, (as most of us have) as an opponent for Ortiz. I don't really like that fight a whole lot, (Babalu is punch drunk IMO) but it's a start. Ortiz will have been off a long time and major surgery is nothing to sneeze at. A win there and we could be looking at some mega fights. Just no Ortiz/Kimbo Slice type match ups please.

    You're right PJ, White allowed his personal feelings to get in the way of business with Ortiz. It may be time for white to tone it down a bit and focus on making sound business decisions.

    once again DW shows us what a schmuck he is, alienating the vatos locos and handing them over to strikeforce so they can watch Tito on Showtime.

    I can tell you that if this is all true then strikeforce can expect to have me watching any card with Tito on it, whether it be against Babalu or Kimbo

    Maybe after affliction folds we could see another ortiz vs. belfort fight. I could also see strikeforce eventualy bringing in guys like arona, nog, and mousasi. They are also currently trying to build up feijaio. The divison could be stacked in no time with the superstar ortiz leading the pack.

    I think Babalu-Ortiz was a fight the UFC should have put on. they had bad blood and before losing to Chuck a second time, Babalu was on a nice winning streak.

    Although he does bring recognition, paying too much can be a bad thing but giving him ownership is kind of a noncash form of compensation.

    Surprising he is still so popular, it's been a long time since we've seen him crush guys in short time like he used to (other than Ken)

    The casual fan will always be drawn to the guy with the big personality. Its not always just about winning, sylvia was the champ and no one liked him.

    Ortiz had the bad boy brash persona, so he had people hate him and love him. Add in the fact that he was a great fighter and it just makes him even more popular. Then peopel got to see a more personal side on tuf (whether it was real or not) and it drew in even more fans.

    Claudale you're a financial guy, right? What kind of compensation package would you expect Ortiz to receive?

    And yes Pimach, I think Dana White is wrong on this one. He's making a huge mistake if Ortiz does indeed sign elsewhere.

    Adolf, I can't answer that. Obviously they need to pay him more than the UFC did and although no one else appears to be competing for him to fight, I guess he makes money from appearing in movies and stuff?

    If they are paying him more than he demanded, than that can shorten their life too.

    One guy will put asses in the seats, but I don't think he alone can rival a name brand like the UFC.

    I think Dana (and the UFC) always took the approach that they decide what is fair and you take what they offer. I think they've put their foot down to several fighters to make that point so everyone doesn't go that route. Hansen, Brennan, Sylvia and Cro Cop are examples of that imo.

    Forget about a Belfort vs Ortiz fight. Tito is a 205 pounder and we now know Belfort does not have enough balls to fight even 10 pounds above middleweight.
