Ortiz vs. Evans II might not happen in Cincinnati

Tito Ortiz’s media tour continues and in a new interview with MMAWeekly.com he once again reiterates his desire to have a rematch against Rashad Evans staged in Las Vegas as opposed to Cincinnati and UFC 77 this coming October:

“I want to get back in before the end of the year. I’d love for it to be in Vegas. That would be nice. I want to be home for once. When I fight in Sacramento, it doesn’t feel like home. Vegas is my home when I compete and that’s what I want to do,” Ortiz told MMAWeekly.

He added, “I plan on fighting Rashad, possibly in October or November, nothing’s 100% sure yet.”

A rematch with Rashad Evans is the fight Ortiz wants next. Tito said, “Last time we talked that was what it was going to be. Rashad said he wanted the fight and I said I wanted to fight. Dana [White] said he wanted the fight and I think all the fans want the fight, so I’m going to give Rashad his first loss and we’re going to see about it.”

In the interview Ortiz also states again that a bout with Evans has not been signed and he doesn’t intend to sign a bout agreement until his back is closer to 100%. He also reiterates that all contract extension talks will be going through UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta and not Dana White.

    who the fuck is Tito to say where he wants to fight?? he can’t even win a fight!!! he should count his blessings that he gets to deal with the fertitta’s instead of dana. otherwise, his new home would be the IFL and the last time I checked they don’t come to vegas that much…

    All I can say for Tito is a true fighter fights when and where they are supposed to fight not where they think they can do there best. Face the music fool and fight where you should fight because if you lose youre going to be just like shamrock in Retirement !!!!!
