Allow me to remove my journalist hat for a moment and say that I'm a Tito Ortiz fan.
He's the man who I credit for renewing my love for MMA after the UFC was pulled from pay-per-view in the mid-90s. He was the first fighter who really understood that being entertaining in the cage wasn't enough when it came to being a superstar.
His brought a pro wrestling flair to his antics in and out of the cage. It was exciting to watch, and it lead to some of the biggest pay-per-view buy rates in MMA history.
After almost 16 years in the sport, he's decided to end his career at UFC 148.
The UFC has decided to induct the "Huntington Beach Bad Boy" into the Hall of Fame at the Fan Expo.
I'll be live for the ceremony and will provide play by play. It starts at Noon, Pacific Time.
