Tito Ortiz already looking head to 2012 despite December fight against Nogueira

Iconinc light heavyweight Tito Ortiz is no stranger to calling out fighters. Ortiz, who is set to meet Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 140 in December, is setting his sights on another opponent already.

Ortiz snapped a four-year losing streak in 2011 by submitting Ryan Bader at UFC 132. The 36-year-old suffered a loss to Rashad Evans a few months ago, but that has not stopped him from pushing forward with his career.

“The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” responded to comments made by fellow former UFC champion Rich Franklin while appearing on a recent episode of Inside MMA. “Ace,” who is rehabbing from a surgery, called out Ortiz recently.

“One hundred percent, yes. I would love to (Franklin). I’ll take any fights. Put’em in front of me, I’ll fight,” Ortiz said. “UFC wants me to fight’em? I’ll fight. Dana wants me to fight’em? I’ll fight. Rich Franklin, you wanna get broken off some? I’ll break you off some.”

UFC 140 takes place December 10 from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The main event will be Jon Jones defending the UFC 205-pound belt against Lyoto Machida.
