Tito Ortiz on Dana White: 'He's like a chick, man. He's like a chick who has a crush, and will never leave me alone'

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

Tito Ortiz says that he would like to be back on good terms with Dana White, but he doesn't trust the UFC president and his "fake smile."

Tito Ortiz and Dana White have one of the most colorful pasts in MMA history. The two have been partners, friends, enemies and fight opponents (for a boxing match that fell through).

Ortiz recently got back into the win column, picking up an upset victory at the recent Bellator PPV debut and took a few pot shots at the UFC.

He was on Submission Radioand went into his relationship with White as of now, "He's like a chick, man. He's like a chick who has a crush, and will never leave me alone, or he's trying to get me back. I don’t know, I just keep my mouth shut about him, and I just let him rant and rave about me. At least his talking about me. I guess I can thank him for that."

He went on to say that he would like to mend their relationship eventually, "I would love that to happen, but I mean it’s, a big factor with Dana is just (that) his ego is too big for itself, and I can see right through it. I mean, you can be fake to a person and say "oh yeah, I’m all cool with him, everything’s squashed" but I mean, at the end of the day they're trying to hurt you, and that will happen. And I dunno, maybe it’s my trust issues I have."

Ortiz's trust issues may be the final stopper in any improvements ever happening for the two, "I don’t trust people very well and I have just known him for so long, I can just see through the fakeness. You can just see it through the fake smile"
