UFC President Dana White confirms Tito Ortiz will be the next UFC Hall of Fame inductee during the upcoming UFC fan expo July 6-7 in Las Vegas, NV at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
“I think he’s a guy who pound-for-pound—at the time we were hurting—tried to do more damage to [the UFC] than anyone in the history of this company. At the same time the storyline played out and it’s a part of our history –between me, Chuck(Liddell) and Tito. And it’s definitely part of the history of the sport,” says Dana.
Q: Mentioning Chuck there, do you see Tito taking a role like Chuck with UFC after he’s done?
“Tito’s never been about the company of the UFC,” said White. “Tito’s been about his own brand, Punishment, and Tito Ortiz…. I got no beef with Tito. Me and Tito are totally cool.”
