Tito Ortiz: I知 Willing to Fight in PRIDE

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz (15-5 MMA, 14-5 UFC) is willing to fight in the Zuffa LLC-acquired PRIDE Fighting Championships, according to a recent interview with MMANews.com.
Ortiz, who most recently dropped a title fight to Chuck Liddell at UFC 66, will next face top contender Rashad Evans at UFC 73. However, even if he were to defeat The Ultimate Fighter 2 heavyweight winner at the July 7 event, Ortiz is unlikely to earn a title shot again anytime soon.
After all, both of Ortiz痴 past two losses have come at the hands of Liddell, and a third fight is unlikely to garner the amount of pay-per-view buys their first two fights did.
Liddell is perhaps the UFC痴 most marketable and most revered fighter, and the organization would probably be hesitant to schedule the champ in a main event that fans have seen twice before. Other options such as Evans, Keith Jardine, Lyoto Machida and even a rematch/rubber match with Liddell痴 upcoming UFC 71 opponent, Quinton Jackson, would seem more logical options at this point.
So, that leaves Ortiz competing with a division of contenders with no potential title fight in sight. Perhaps that痴 where PRIDE could come into play.
As Ortiz told MMANews.com:

的t doesn稚 matter [who I fight]. I壇 like to fight anybody just so I can get another title shot [Mauricio] Shogun [Rua], Wanderlei Silva, Dan Henderson, it really doesn稚 matter. Anybody in the top five. I just want to get a chance to get my world title back and whoever I have to go through to get that title shot again, I値l do it.
的 would love to [fight in PRIDE]. I窶冦 glad that Zuffa bought Pride because now that just brings fresh meat over. I have no problem fighting in Pride because the UFC will condone everything. Before UFC didn窶冲 want me fighting in Pride because they strictly wanted me fighting in the UFC. Now I can go over and beat all those guys and get the world title there and come back and unify the titles and beat Chuck for his too.
The potential move to the Japanese-based organization might make even more sense if Ortiz loses to Evans in July. Although Ortiz will always have a large contingent of U.S. fans, he could become a solid draw in Japan. He痴 certainly a character, and Asian fight fans seem to cling to American oddballs such as Heath Herring and Kevin Randleman. If nothing else, Ortiz痴 status as a former champ and one of MMA痴 biggest names should earn him a big following with such a crowd.
