Tito Ortiz Signs Bout Agreement to Face Mark Coleman at UFC 106

Former UFC light heavyweight champ Tito Ortiz has signed his bout agreement to fight former heavyweight champ Mark Coleman at UFC 106 on Nov. 21 in Las Vegas.

Ortiz released a video Monday morning of himself taking viewers through a typical UFC bout contract before signing the papers and faxing it to the UFC.

UFC president Dana White first publicly mentioned the matchup as a possibility during a conference call on July 31 to announce Ortiz's return, but the bout agreements were finally sent to Coleman and Ortiz on Saturday.

"Tito Ortiz. Signed the contract. Got it done," Ortiz boasted in the video. "Now it's time to train and kick some [butt]. Don't call it a comeback, baby! Cause I'm going to get back my title."

Ortiz (15-6-1) resumed training late last month after being sidelined by back surgery last October. His last fight was a loss to current champion Lyoto Machida at UFC 84 in May 2008.

The 44-year-old Coleman (16-9) lost his 205-pound debut against Mauricio "Shogun" Rua in January but bounced back with a unanimous decision against Stephan Bonnar at UFC 100 in July.

A heavyweight title defense by Brock Lesnar against Shane Carwin will serve as the main event for UFC 106.
