According to the website TMZ.com, former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz is a part of the cast for Donald Trump’s upcoming season of “Celebrity Apprentice” on NBC.
Could Ortiz’s potential appearance on the show be the reason why he was unwilling to sign a bout agreement to rematch Rashad Evans at UFC 78?
If the report is true, the appearance could help Ortiz become an even bigger star. This type of exposure could be tremendous for him because he obviously knows how to work the camera. If he still hasn’t re-signed with the UFC then he made a smart move because his market value could increase after the upcoming season airs.
TMZ is also reporting that former WWE champion John Cena will be a part of the cast as well.
