Quote of the Day: Tito Ortiz - "Rashad Evans, Rampage Jackson and Chuck Liddell Are Making the Millions Now Because of Me"

"People like (Rashad) Evans and 'Rampage' Jackson and Chuck Liddell – these guys are making the millions now because of me holding out. If I didn't hold out, they'd get taken advantage of."

... "'Rampage' is a guy who I've helped out a lot. When he came from PRIDE, he got the same contract I did – exactly the same contract as I did. I gave it it to him, and I told him, 'This is what I'm getting, bro. This is what you should be getting.' He did, and he got it. It's just one of those things that I've always tried to help out guys like Matt Hughes, the dirtbag, and guys like that who just hate on me – probably because either they wanted to be like me or they can't achieve as much as I have."

... "I wanted to be successful, and sometimes people get things given to them. Sometimes people work hard to make them happen. Chuck has always had things given to him, and I work hard to make it happen. If it wasn't for my hard work and dedication, I would have been forgotten about."

-- Tito Ortiz says he's raised the bar for all fighters and they should be thankful.
