Tito close to signing with the UFC?
FIGHTHYPE is reporting that Ortiz will finish out his career with the UFC and has been offered shots at Sokoudjou, Houston Alexander or Stephan Bonnar. This definitely seems like the best route for Tito to go, because even if other organizations such as Elite or Affliction offer him lucrative deals I am not sure they have the stable of fighters at 205 to make any interesting matchups. It should be noted that Ortiz does have a relationship with Donald Trump, a current investor in the Affliction promotion, from his days on the Apprentice. Additionally, there have been some rumors that Elite XC would like to setup rematch between Ortiz and Frank Shamrock.
