 UFC Did Tito Ortiz make the right call fighting at UFC 133?
posted 5 years ago

The UFC 133 Odds are now posted for next month UFC Picks matchups. For most of yesterday, the only thing certain was that Rashad Evans would face Somebody. At first it as believed to be Lyoto Machida after Tito Ortiz turned the fight down, then it was a fill in the blank proposition. Finally, it was Ortiz who called back and took it. A little reflection was all he needed to know he was passing up a good deal.

In the end, it wasn't Ortiz who got DWhite's dander up for passing on a major opportunity -- it was Machida, who wanted to cash in above his pay grade. Speaking to MMA Junkie on how the situation unfolded, White made it clear he was peeved by this demand. Who are you going to make your UFC Picks with?

"Machida accepted the fight," he said. "We knew for a couple days this was going down, and Machida accepted the fight. Then when we called back and said, 'OK, we're going to make this fight,' Machida's people came back and said, 'We'll tell you what. You pay us what you pay Anderson Silva, and we'll take the fight.' This was after they had already agreed to take the fight.

"I said, 'Are you [expletive] kidding me? I'll tell you what. You tell Machida (if) he achieves what [expletive] Anderson Silva has achieved, then maybe he'll make Anderson Silva money. Have a nice day.'"  NFL Betting almost here.

With no Machida, the UFC caught a break when Ortiz -- who had time to reflect -- called back. As a big-name fighter with back-story interest tied to Evans stemming back to their first fight at UFC 73 in 2007, he was an obvious choice, particularly coming off his quick victory over Ryan Bader at UFC 132 Results. If anything, there is now more intrigue in UFC 133's main event than there was when Phil Davis was set to headline with Evans. With the rash of injuries that have altered big cards in the last few months, Ortiz stepping in saved UFC 133 Odds from being a pay-per-view bomb.
