Last fall, Bellator FC had to made some serious adjustments, cancelling their Bellator 106 PPV debut on a few day's notice, when Tito Ortiz fractured his neck in training and had to pull out of a planned bout with Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. The rest of the card was moved to Spike TV. Now Tito tells MMA Weekly that he's recovered and ready for action:
"Everything is good. I'm about my ninth week in training," said Ortiz. "I'm kind of on hold right now, waiting for Bellator to set me up with a match. I thought I'd be on this pay-per-view that's coming up, but they wanted to wait.
"After my last loss to Forrest Griffin, it left a bad taste in my mouth. No one wants to retire off a loss," he said.
After his last injury, Tito's doctor said he risked paralysis if he ever chose to fight again. Ortiz is apparently unconcerned.
Bellator will make its PPV debut in May with a Lightweight title bout between Eddie Alvarez and challenger Michael Chandler who wants his title back plus a Light Heavyweight #1 contender's bout between Jackson and Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal.
