Tito Ortiz
Tito Ortiz will call it a career at UFC 148 but not before he visits with MMAWeekly Radio where he discusses his retirement, the Hall of Fame and facing Forrest Griffin.

Ortiz opens up about his final UFC fight as well as what the future holds for the fighter once known as ‘The Huntington Beach Bad Boy’.

Also the Sixth Round kicks off the best debate in MMA with the following topics:

- Alistair Overeem says he’s doing his own random testing to prove he’s a clean fighter. Will this help his image long term?
- BJ Penn and Rory MacDonald have agreed to VADA testing prior to their fight at UFC 152. Substantial move for MMA?
- Ronda Rousey will main event her second card in a row. Will this next fight prove the star power of Rousey in MMA?
- Chael Sonnen responds to Anderson Silva by calling him a ‘dirtbag’ among other comments. Do you think Sonnen is more worried now after Silva finally responded?
- Dana White says he expects UFC 100 type numbers for the UFC 148 PPV. What do you expect out of UFC 148?

This is MMAWeekly Radio for Wednesday, June 27
