Tito Ortiz: 'Everyone has a comeback'

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Don't look now, but Tito Ortiz might be on the comeback trail.

A year after Ortiz vowed he would retire following his loss to Forrest Griffin at UFC 148, "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" appears to be contemplating a return to MMA.

Ortiz tweeted this on Wednesday:

When reached out to Ortiz on Wednesday to ask if he was considering a comeback, he wrote back via text message, "everyone has a comeback."

When asked if he was healthy enough to fight again, Ortiz wrote, "we will see in five months."

The 38-year-old former UFC light heavyweight champion did not explain what was happening in five months, nor did he respond to subsequent text messages.

Ortiz has undergone numerous surgeries over the course of his career, most notably on his neck and back, which seemed to have cut his career short.

After starting his career with a 15-4 record, Ortiz retired last year with a record of 16-11-1.
