After another long layoff Tito Ortiz will return to the Octagon at UFC 121 to face Matt Hammil.

The two men are no strangers to each other as Hamill was on Team Ortiz during TUF season 3. Tito seemed to really like Matt on the show and was a favorite but his stay was cut short after an injury took him out of the competition. Even though he didnt get to really show his true ability on the show his willingness to fight kept him in the UFC. He had a rocky start losing to both Michael Bisping and Rich Franklin but since those loses he has been on a 4 fight win streak against some solid competition.

Tito on the other hand has not been as successful going 0-3-1 in his last 4 fights. His last win came 4 years ago when he beat Ken Shamrock for the third time! Hopefully Ortiz doesnt enter the fight with another “cracked skull” since he desperately needs a win if he wants to keep his recently renewed UFC contract.
