Tito Ortiz Quotes
For me, boxing's like checkers, and MMA's like chess - there are so many ways to win the match. It's not barbaric; it's boxing, kickboxing, Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling, cardio and it's all reached such an amazing level. As fans learn more about the sport, they just fall in love with it.
I made the wrong decision myself in my career. I tried to battle against the system. I should have never done that, but I didn't have anybody else who showed me how to do it before. I did everything on instinct.
Once someone watches me compete, I'm part of them forever.
At the end of the day, when I step in that cage, I'm there to fight for my name. It's not about money; it's not about who's gonna win or lose. It's about me winning. That's all that matters.
I'm a Trump guy. I wasn't in the beginning, of course. I'm Mexican, when he said we need to take all the Mexicans out of United States... well, good luck on that one. They'll find a way to get back here anyways.
I squeeze like an anaconda.
I've tasted the dirt side. I've tasted being broke. I've been in the dumps, I've lived in motels as a kid. I want a different opportunity for my children. I never want them to see those things.
Man's best friend - that's what dogs are. I have two dogs. I love and treat them like family.
I'm really articulate when I do my thing - when I speak on the mic, when I do interviews. I'm a colorful personality.
I was always a huge WWF wrestling fan, and Hulk Hogan was one of my biggest heroes.

Life's too short. Too short to hate.
I've been able to mature and improve my mixed martial arts game completely; I just never stop learning, and whenever I think I know enough, I just keep working and do more.
Wrestling encompasses hard work, dedication, sacrifice, and determination - there's just nothing like it in any sport.
I've had two neck surgeries, a back surgery, three knee surgeries, eye surgery, but I keep bouncing back. I won't go away - kind of like a virus. I don't go away. I keep coming back stronger and stronger. I'm contagious.
The whole bad-boy image was for the cage, and that's it. It wasn't an act because it came from a passion for fighting.
I've had an ACL replaced in my left knee, ACL replaced in my right knee, 50 percent of my meniscus taken out of my right knee, lower back fusion, C-6, C-7 fused in my neck, C-5, C-4 disk replacement, C-4, C-3 fused. I have 26, 27 concussions, hundreds of stitches. I've been through the grinder.
Negativity just sucks the life out of somebody.
I had little problems during high school. It seemed like I was always getting into trouble in summer, going in and out of juvenile hall.
I love doing films, action films, anything I can get into that is produced at a high level, really use my skills.
Fighting is my livelihood, and jeopardizing my body without a full understanding of conditions doesn't make any sense. No professional fighter will go into a risky match without a contract.
I've struggled to get respect and dignity for my profession, and I do it in the way I lead my life as a fighter and as a human being.
I'm a person that's been fueled on emotions. And any fan who's ever been around any of my fights, I'm the only fighter who'd go out on the concourse to sign autographs the day of the fight. Because I'm in love with my fans.
Tito Ortiz vs. Chuck Liddell III, the fight that all the fans wanted to see for the longest time and never got a chance to. I never got a fair shake when I was with the UFC against Chuck, any of the times I ever fought against him.
I have a great surgeon that put me together.
The UFC makes about 99 percent of the money, and the rest goes to the fighters. That one percent ain't nothing compared to what they make on merchandising, on pay-per-view, and everything else they make around the world.
I'm not a young kid struggling to get to the top. I've been to the top. I gotta look out for my best interests as a businessman in this fight game. At the end of the day, it is a business. I've got children to take care of; I've got bills to pay.
