Tito Ortiz talks about his neck surgery: "I’m about 40% you know with my neck just because of it’s only six weeks after surgery. You know you guys can see the scar that I got out of it and a year or so it’ll be gone, hopefully, but in the next two months I’ll be back into training. Yesterday, actually my doctor gave me the go ahead to start doing weight-training, boxing, so… you know, slow steps, but getting back to where I’m healthy and no more pain and able to fight at my full potential and that’s what I want to do, you know. I’m just sick of fighting with injuries and now that they’re gone and you know now it’s time to get back in the saddle and try to get my world title back." "I think rehab’s the biggest thing. Getting back to my full strength, you know I’m about 205 right now and this is the lightest I’ve ever been, you know, after any fights or I got as low as 199 but I may get back to about 225. My normal walk-around weight, you know, 220-225. But bringing in young guys, you know wrestlers, possibly going to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado to train with some of the wrestlers. I need to get back to my roots and that’s wrestling and that’s what it comes down to. When you have no injuries you’re able to do those things and that’s what I’m going to do."
