Tito Ortiz posted a message for Dana White: It's not about you.
After White fought over Ortiz's trilogy with Chuck Liddell, "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" joined Twitter to defend his latest offer (via Instagram).
Ortiz and the Promoter of Golden Boy, Oscar De La Hoya, made the compensation a central part of building the fight last Saturday, which ended with a knockout in the first round for Ortiz.
White shot back on De La Hoya's opinion that the UFC President should not tell a fighter when he should retire, and told the retired boxer: "It's called friendship, you (explicit) Cokehead."
White left Ortiz, who was once half of his client as combat manager, before he took over the direction of the UFC, and they were almost in a show fight again, before they all patched up and dropped again.
"Tito says, 'Hey, you want to get paid, come on Golden Boy MMA & # 39 ;, White said. Hey, my brother, wait a few months for the whole thing to be done, everyone will sue everyone in a few months, no money will be made there. "
In an interview with MMAjunkie on Monday, estimated Ortiz said that the event had already reached 200,000 pay-per-view purchases last Saturday, while the actual buyrates may take weeks to tabulate, he was optimistic.
With 400 texts and 600 missed calls on his phone said he, there was more interest than all his battles under the banner of Bellator.
the hate I get, and of course the support I get, "he said," that's more than I ever had, when I was We fought Chael (suns) and we did crazy numbers on TV with Chael, and when I fought Stephan Bonnar, I quadruple each of those guys. "
" I'm not saying we do not even 500,000 break, "he added. "But we are very close, I would be very happy."
Ortiz said his payday in the career continues to be his second fight with Liddell on UFC 66, which paid $ 2.9 million on a payday. However, this happened under another revenue sharing agreement; Under Golden Boy he said he would split pay-per-view profits with Liddell.
"It would be pretty close (on my best payday)," Ortiz said. "For the deserved pay-per-view approach, if we could make 1.3 million buys, it would be a home race from the park forever.
" At the end of the day, I was just thankful to be there like I did, and I silenced Chuck and silenced all fans. I could bask in glory for the rest of my life, because I always wanted this redemption struggle. I always wanted to show the opportunity that I am the better fighter when I am healthy.
