UFC Hall Of Famer Tito Ortiz has taken on a new role in mixed martial arts, serving as a manager for a number of fighters including former Strikeforce featherweight champion Cristiane Santos. “Cyborg” has been off for more than a year since being stripped of her title and suspended for testing positive for performance enhancement drugs. Since Strikeforce and her division are no longer in existence, the UFC gave her the option of dropping down to bantamweight to fight current champion Ronda Rousey.
The shredded Santos initially said she could not make the weight, but now that seems to be changing as is Ortiz’s opinion about a fight between the two women at 135 pounds.
In the following video, fans can listen to Ortiz as he breaks down Santos’ future in the UFC, as well as why he thinks she should be given time to adjust and take a warm up fight before she fights Rousey for the title.
