Just one week after re-signing with the UFC, former light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz is training hard to get in shape for his next fight. The intense workouts come after a back injury sidelined the fighter to nine months of rehab. But now, the “Huntington Beach Bad Boy” is pumping iron with trainer Freddie Roach at Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles, where the 34-year old fighter stated to MMAWeekly.com, “It feels nice to train with no soreness. For the first month now, I’ll be doing two-a-days.”
And then, Tito says he would like to make a stop in Montreal to train with UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre to prepare for his next big fight, presumably against former UFC heavyweight champion Mark Coleman at UFC 106 in November.
“I respect him a lot,” Ortiz stated of Coleman. “I think this fight will have a lot more personal vendetta behind it the closer the fight comes, I think.”
