As quickly as Tito Ortiz rose from the ashes, it appears he's falling just as quickly.
Tito took on Rashad Evans at UFC 133 in the main event of the evening, replacing an injured Phil Davis.
Ortiz was hoping to ride the momentum he built defeating Ryan Bader some five weeks ago, but things didn't exactly work out that way for The Huntington Beach Bad Boy.
Evans managed to dominate most of the fight and eventually finished Tito in the second round, hitting him with a huge knee to the stomach and following up with ground and pound. Ortiz failed to improve his position while Rashad was pounding on him and so the fight was stopped.
This loss puts Ortiz in a pretty precarious position, given that it was not so long ago that he was fighting just to keep his job.
Tito likely needs to win his next fight to avoid being cut and so he should be very selective about what fights he takes next.
Here are five fights that Ortiz could take next that would be relatively marketable and Tito would have a good chance of winning...
