After UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman lost what was probably the last fight of his illustrious career, Tito Ortiz proceeded to talk trash to Coleman.
If you remember, it was Coleman’s manager, Mike DiSabato, who made comments about Ortiz’s wife, ex-porn star Jenna Jameson.
Most fans not sitting Octagon-side couldn’t hear what Ortiz said to Coleman as he was exiting the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las, Vegas with his wife, but UFC president Dana White addressed the situation at the “UFC 109: Relentless” post-fight press conference.
“When isn’t there bad blood with Tito? Tito’s calling out [Mark] Coleman when he’s fighting Chuck [Liddell]. I don’t even know what to say to that, that’s Tito,” White said with a smirk on his face.
Although White and the UFC opted to bring Ortiz back, you could tell White’s already had enough of “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” and the circus he creates.
“A guy just loses in the most important fight of his life, he’s standing there and doing an interview and Tito’s screaming [expletives] at him … Tito, Tito’s back,” White said regarding Ortiz’s antics during Joe Rogan’s post-fight interview with Coleman inside the Octagon.
Coleman and Ortiz were supposed to meet at UFC 106 in November, however an injury forced Coleman off the card and that’s what seemed to trigger the two-way trash talking. On yeah, and DiSabato’s comments certainly added fuel to the fire as well.
Unfortunately, White pretty much killed any possibility of a fight between the two as he stated after the event that Coleman has probably fought his last bout inside the Octagon.
