Tito Ortiz“This fight saved my career. This fight saved my family.”

Those are powerful words, but not so out of character for UFC Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz, who generally wears his heart on his sleeve.

Ortiz sat down for a special edition of UFC Tonight on Tuesday to take a deeper look at his career, now that he has retired and moved into the management game.

Looking back at his upset victory over Ryan Bader at UFC 132, Ortiz got very emotional recounting how the fight went down and what it meant to him.
