Dana White loves Twitter, but can his latest tweet be true?

In White's latest, he finishes with a casual yet cryptic: "Oh yea and welcome back[,] [T]ito[.] :)"

It has been previously reported that White and Tito Ortiz put their famous feud behind them. It was even speculated that Ortiz might come back to fight Rich Franklin in the UFC 103 main event. That role has since been relegated to Dan Henderson.

For those that don't remember, Ortiz is a former UFC light heavyweight champion and defended his belt five consecutive times, a record he currently shares with Matt Hughes and Anderson Silva.

Tito Ortiz has said recently that he just started back with his training regimen, and it would be at least three months before he returns to action.

With the folding of Affliction, Ortiz's list of possible organizations has been narrowed down to two, and it appears as if White has narrowed it down even further.

That is if you take his tweets to heart.
