UFC 140 Results: What We Learned About Tito Ortiz

G DAnalyst IIIDecember 12, 2011

"The Huntington Beach Bad Boy...Tito...Ortiz."

We've all heard Bruce Buffer and Ortiz's fan base across the globe become engaged in one of the most popular fighters on the planet.

However, fans' spark of emotion towards Ortiz is nothing to count creditable as his career is quickly going up in flames.

That is, if we haven't already reached that point.

But, Ortiz had a chance to write his wrongs in a light heavyweight showdown against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 140 in Toronto, Canada.

When action began it was Ortiz who appeared shell-shocked by Nogueira's pressure as "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" was being tested early and often.

Ortiz proved and demonstrated to fans and viewers across the globe that he isn't the fighter he once was as his stand-up was ineffective against Nogueira.

Ortiz endured many blows before being taken to the ground only to receive more.

Following a loss to Nogueira, Ortiz has now won just one fight in his last eight appearances.

While Ortiz may have a strong desire to compete in the UFC, his days have quickly come to pass.

As the fight was taken to the ground after a vicious knee, Ortiz displayed an inability to escape from his back as Nogueira began teeing off on his opponent.

Finally, the misery came to a close as Ortiz has proven that his career with the UFC is all but over and done with.
