According to Fightlinker, Tito Ortiz made an appearance at Little Creek Casino in Shelton, WA this past weekend and got on the microphone to tell everyone that his next fight is against either Rashad Evans or Wanderlei Silva.
A fight against Wanderlei Silva doesn’t make a whole lot of sense right now, so I’m assuming it’s Tito doing what he does best: talking shit.
At this point, you can’t take anything that comes out of Tito’s mouth all that seriously. My guess is this will remain a rumor and nothing more. The UFC has unsettled business to finish between Ortiz and Evans and I just don’t see them putting Ortiz into a matchup with someone like Wanderlei Silva until he gets past Evans.
On the contrary, however, a matchup between Ortiz and Silva would be a interesting rematch from a previous fight in the UFC where Ortiz came out on top. Like I said, if Ortiz gets past Evans, look for someone like Wanderlei to be his next opponent.
