Rebney Talks Tito’s Uncertain Future With Bellator

“I’ve been having a good number of conversations with Tito. The prior neck injury was disturbing, but we’ve gotten past that. The fracture was really disturbing because of the potential for paralysis under a worse-case scenario. We’re doing a pretty exhaustive series of tests to see if he’s fine, because we want to be 100 percent sure.

“It’s one thing to have a fighter come back from a knee injury or a shoulder injury, but the neck and head, I’d rather err on the side of being overly cautious than rush and something happens. We need to be really careful.”

In a recent interview with Dave Meltzer of, Bellator Boss Bjorn Rebney, discussed the future of Tito Ortiz.

At 39-years-old, the former UFC light-heavyweight champion, still wants to test himself inside the Bellator cage.

Would you tune in?

    For fucksakes just stay retired. I might not like Tito but I don’t want to see anyone from this sport end up paralyzed.

    It’s not worth it Tito. You’re a hall of famer, former champ, think of your kids. As sure as shit you dont want them going to their biological mother if something happens to you…
