Tito Ortiz loses again, this time to Matt Hamill via Unanimous DecisionPosted on October 23, 2010, 10:16 PM by Anton Gurevich
Once a great Mixed Martial Artist, Tito Ortiz added another defeat to his record, this time falling short against his Ultimate Fighter student Matt "The Hammer" Hamill. Just like in his last fight against Forrest Griffin, Ortiz lacked his trademark aggression and power, which made him a future UFC Hall of Famer and a #1 Light Heavyweight in the World during his prime.
Hamill did exactly what was expected from him. The Hammer kept distance from Tito, stinging the former mentor with solid jabs and striking combinations. Hamill managed to take down Tito Ortiz on several occasions, followed by an excellent ground and pound work.
In the end, it's a Unanimous Decision victory for Matt Hamill, who gets himself in the mix of the UFC Light Heavyweight division.
As for Tito Ortiz, I'm not afraid to say that The Huntington Beach Bad Boy should retire. His last victory was against Ken Shamrock, four years ago. Ortiz is one of the greatest fighters to ever compete in this sport, and it will be sad to see him following the footsteps of Chuck Liddell.
