UFC legend Tito Ortiz making noise about a comeback

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

He's in the UFC Hall of Fame but former UFC Light Heavyweight champ Tito Ortiz might be looking to put a cherry on top of his MMA career with a comeback.

Tito Ortiz called it a career following his UFC 148 loss to Forrest Griffin in July, 2012. His induction into the UFC Hall of Fame followed in short order. Now the 38-year-old is making noises about returning to the cage maybe even for another promotion.

Here are a few of Tito's recent tweets:

Viacom is the parent company of UFC rival Bellator which has recently signed ex-UFC star Rampage Jackson, a long-time friend of Tito's.

MMA Fighting has more:

When MMAFighting.com reached out to Ortiz on Wednesday to ask if he was considering a comeback, he wrote back via text message, "everyone has a comeback."

When asked if he was healthy enough to fight again, Ortiz wrote, "we will see in five months."

Adding to the intrigue is a tweet that Tito posted and deleted last night which read "First step too my future." and included an instagram picture of a doormat that read 5000 Birch which is the address of Bellator's offices in Newport Beach, California.

Tito's current occupation is his fighter management company Primetime 360 Entertainment & Sports Management Inc. which handles Cris Cyborg among others. Tito went 1-7-1 in his last 9 fights with the UFC.
