Tito Ortiz is back in the headlines, this time for defending client Cris "Cyborg" Santos.
Ortiz, now a manager, no longer does his fighting in the Octagon but from behind a desk. The manager of Cyborg tweeted that "cheating" in the UFC is now accepted.
Obviously, we can infer that he is referring to the testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) usage in the UFC as the target of his point.
Here is the tweet.
By that, Ortiz was implying that Griffin himself is a user of TRT, as he was exempted at UFC 148 when he last fought Ortiz.
TRT has long been a hot topic in MMA, but Ortiz slamming Griffin does not help the situation. Sure, TRT usage is questionable in sports, but he got exempt from it while Cyborg got caught with her hand in the cookie jar.
This defense comes on the heels of Ortiz claiming that Cyborg cannot make the cut to 135 safely, among other things involving his client. Ortiz may be gone from fighting, but he sure isn't done creating havoc with his mouth.
