If you follow Tito Ortiz on Twitter (and you should since he retweeted me), you would have known to look out for a confrontation between Tito Ortiz and UFC heavyweight Matt Mitrione. Apparently Roy Nelson does as he captured the heated words on video.
[adinserter block=”1″]The UFC brought all of its fighters together Wednesday for a summit. The summit consisted of several seminars that covered everything from marketing to managing your money. Bringing together a room full of fighters, some with disagreements for an entire day was a recipe for disaster as the UFC found out with Mitrione and Ortiz.
I don’t know exactly what the root of the problem is between these two but Tito tweeted earlier in the day about his dislike for Mitrione. This tweet came early in the morning in response to a fan.
A fan asked Tito on Twitter – @titoortiz hey tito, get up and say what’s up to @mattmitrione ,he hasn’t met you yet! Let’s Go!!
Ortiz responded immediately on Twitter and I knew something was up.
@surfhockey ya but he can talk sh*t on me & jenna tho. F*ck that guy.
[adinserter block=”1″]Apparently Tito Ortiz acquiesced to the fan and indeed did get up and say hi to Mitrione. UFC heavyweight Roy Nelson caught the entire thing on his flip cam and posted it to his You Tube page. It is impossible to hear exactly what was said with the loud music in the background. But if you can read lips, you can see that there was a problem. At one point a UFC staff member intervened and had to break the two up.
There aren’t many fighters in the UFC that I can’t stand but Mitrione is definitely one of them. The guy talks a lot of trash for someone that hasn’t beaten anyone. If he really did talk trash on Tito and his family, well than the guy truly is a low class individual. Kudos for Tito for getting in his face and calling him out for the things he said about Ortiz and his family.
Even with the weight difference my money is on Ortiz.
