Yeah, there's been tumbleweed rolling around this place since the last ppv. It's going to be a slow end to March for MMA (guess no one wanted to compete with the NCAA tournament).
Dana's a can. Tito will probably try to KO him considering he doesn't like him. Double KO would be ideal.

HOw about if tito cries and causes dana to slip and fall when entering the ring, dana "hype" dies and tito goes to jail to change his name to o-ring ortiz. damn i dont like either of em.

I can't stand Dana, but he's certainly good for MMA. What we need is for him to survive the boxing match with Tito, then for someone to create a Dana White Robot (with a mute button). Once that is complete he needs to get in the ring with CroCop and be the first "death or serious injury in MMA"

Tito Ortiz No-Shows, Bout With Dana White Never Happened
03/24/2007 @ 08:13 PM
Dave Meltzer's website, WrestlingObserver.com:
Tito Ortiz no-showed the weigh-in and the fight never happened.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission was not happy with this turn of events as they had officials there. Dana White was there and got weighed-in. There was no communication from Ortiz as to why he wasn't there. Ortiz did call White and leave him a messages saying that he was letting him off the hook, but White didn't think that message meant he was cancelling the match.
Spike TV was scheduled to air a 90 minute television special building up the PPV of the fight.

I'll have to wait till its fully confirmed to completely rip into Tito, but wow, typical sh1t from this guy. He is the TO or Jas123 of MMA in my book. Dana probably would've Lee Murray'd him and he knew it. I'm sure you all have been in the situation where you are competing against a well below your level foe and there is a nothing to win and everything to lose feeling. The answer is definitely not to no-show unprofessionally.

Damn, Tito! You make a big deal out of this, enough to put it in the f*ckin' contract, and talk about it in interviews, only to not show up??

Seriously, though, what a *****. He hyped it all up after the 3rd Shammy fight and doesn't show up. Weak. He and F. Shamrock should be buddies, all hype and living in the past.
It is funny that Dana can't really rip on him or say anything about it. He wouldn't dare rip a fighter he later wanted to market. If Rashad wins, I wonder if Dana will try to get rid of Tito or offer him a much smaller contract.

The following is an excerpt from an article by Lance Pugmire from the Los Angeles Times website:
Ortiz doesn't show up for bout with UFC boss White
By Lance Pugmire, Times Staff Writer
March 25, 2007
Tito Ortiz's planned three-round boxing exhibition Saturday against his boss, UFC President Dana White, was canceled when the former light-heavyweight champion from Huntington Beach failed to appear.
UFC officials declined to comment on Ortiz's decision, but one organization source said Ortiz was seeking more compensation for an unofficial event that was so intriguing to mixed-martial arts fans that cable network Spike TV had planned to air preview and fight shows in April.
A UFC spokeswoman said neither White nor Ortiz would comment about the cancellation.
