UFCMania.com was the first site I know of to point out a Tito Ortiz article that appears in today’s edition of the Pahrump Valley Times that suggests Ortiz’s next match will be on Nov. 17 in Newark, NJ at UFC 78.

No opponent was named, though one can only assume it will be Rashad Evans:

Eventually Ortiz received his associate degree and didn’t use drugs again. His fighting career progressed (his next bout will be Nov. 17 in Newark, N.J.). The clothing line he began with $500 is now a million-dollar business.

As you can read, that’s not a lot to go on and I’m not ready to call Evans vs. Ortiz II for UFC as official. But it’s something and we all should know more a little later today because there’s a UFC 76 conference call scheduled for later today and Dana White will be on the call. How much do you want to bet someone asks him about it?

Also, you should check out the Ortiz article. It provides some interesting detail on his back story growing up.
