Tito Ortiz: 'It's Nice to Be Home'

LAS VEGAS -- Eighteen months after he last competed in a professional MMA match and following extensive back surgery, Tito Ortiz will finally return to the Octagon this Saturday night at UFC 106 against Forrest Griffin.

Ortiz also talked about squashing his beef with the organization, being listed as an underdog in this upcoming fight, and making one final run at the light heavyweight title. The video interview is below.
