TITO ORTIZ SAID THAT HE WAS OFFERED A FIGHT WITH MIKE TYSON

Former UFC champion Tito Ortiz (21-12-1) spoke about negotiations with the team of Mike Tyson.

“I recently watched a video of Mike Tyson working on paws with one of my old coaches, Rafael Cordeiro. And Tyson looked like the old Tyson-fast, fast, and powerful. I thought, ” Wow, is Tyson coming back?” And then a few days later they call me and ask if I want to fight with Mike Tyson. I couldn’t believe it, this was the chance of my life. Of course, I said I was in.

I don’t know yet whether it will be a fight under the rules of MMA or Boxing. We haven’t gone that far yet. I think we should both get permission from the athletic Commission first. But in any case, I have been Boxing for 20 years, and my skills are getting better and better. They may not be at the same level as Tyson’s, but has Tyson been slapped in the face for the past 15 years? The answer is no. And I am, and I was able to tame all the opponents I have met over the past years, ” Ortiz said.

DAN IGE: “I’M READY TO HAVE A REMATCH WITH BARBOSA»

Top UFC Featherweight Dan IgE (14-1) spoke about the confrontation with Edson Barbosa (20-9).

“The situation is sad, and I, you know, feel sorry for him. However, I believe that he is shouting everywhere that he won the fight for nothing. Man, it happens. It sucks, but defeats happen in our sport.

He clearly needs to review the record of the fight, because I hit it with my right hand. I took the second and third rounds. That’s all. He shook me, Yes, he managed to shake me with a blow to the body when there were 30 seconds left in the second five-minute period. But one punch doesn’t win you a round.

I do feel a little sorry for him. He is a true legend, for the last 10 years he has been confidently in the Top 5, Top 10. I understand that he wants to win very much, but, you know, none of the members of his team asks for a rematch. Hey, guys, I’m ready to give Edson a rematch. I just beat him on two weeks ‘ notice. Let’s see what I do with it after two months of preparation, ” IgE said.
