described the Fight Summit incident
and called out Tito Ortiz
at a catchweight yesterday on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani:
"What happened was, he was talking to Roy Nelson
when I approached him. He was talking to Roy, he was sitting down, I walked up and extended my hand, said, ‘Hey, I’m Matt.’ As he stood up he said, ‘Yeah, I know who you are,’ and he…pushed me. All one movement. I was wearing my flip-flops like "I kicked my flip-flops off, licked my fingers like I did on The Ultimate Fighter, because I guess that’s a habit of mine, and I was like alright, let’s scrap. I started to square up a little bit, and then he kept saying, like anybody who doesn’t really want to fight, they’re like ‘hit me, hit me then, hit me.’ Well, that’s stupid. That’s why, in the video, I was like, ‘Well, you’re the one being aggressive. If you want to be aggressive, then let’s scrap. …I came and introduced myself. I didn’t come up here to fight you’."
