Tito to Affliction

Tito Ortiz has confirmed that he now will be fighting under the Affliction promotion. He will most likely fight Renato "Babalu" Sobral at Affliction's second event in Las Vegas. Tito attributed Donald Trump's involvement in Affliction as one of the reasons he signed with the promotion.

Tito kept the UFC in the limelight during the dark ages, winning the LHW belt after Frank Shamrock left the UFC. He defended the belt five straight times. Victories over Vitor Belfort, Forrest Griffin, 3X Ken Shamrock, Jerry Bohlander, Evan Tanner, Yuki Kondo, Vladimir Matyushenko, Wanderlei Silva and a split with Guy Mezger.

*MMA Blaster readers were right in predicting Tito would land in Affliction, the number two promotion everyone thought was Elite XC.
