Press Conference Drama...Oh, Tito

There is bedlam at the post-fight presser, ensuring that Tito Ortiz will be the story coming out of UFC 84:

The former UFC light heavyweight champion, saying he was banned by UFC president Dana White, showed up uninvited as reporters were filing in.

He began to answer questions from a couple reporters before getting into an animated discussion with a UFC media relations employee.

Ortiz was told to leave, but refused after girlfriend Jenna Jameson told him to stay. The UFC decided to give Ortiz 10 minutes to speak before the official press conference, and Ortiz began answering questions....

A grinning Ortiz has been sitting at the press table since this went down; Four Las Vegas Metropolitan police officers were escoteed into the press room.

God I hope this is all on video.
