Tito Ortiz’s 2014 did not exactly start off on the right foot. The former UFC Light Heavyweight champion decided to drive his Porsche home after a long night of drinking and partying at the Playboy mansion earlier this month. Ortiz ended up in an accident and was subsequently arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence.
Today, photos of Ortiz’s wrecked Porsche surfaced:
Here is the damage to the rear of the vehicle:
Here is the damage to the front of the vehicle:
As of now, there has been no updates on whether or not Ortiz has been charged, but we will keep you updated with any new information. Clearly Ortiz’s joyride did not pan out as well as he hopes, but in the long run this ended a lot better than it could have.
Ortiz is currently signed with Bellator, but has yet to fight inside of the promotion. In 2013, Bellator planned to put on their first pay per view event with Tito Ortiz headlining alongside Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson. Bellator’s announcement of the fight, and the fact that is was billed above the Michael Chandler/Eddie Alvarez rematch, made it the butt of all jokes in the MMA community.
Ultimately, Ortiz injured his neck, forcing him to pull out of the bout. Bellator scrapped the pay per view, and Alvarez and Chandler headlined a fantastic event on Spike TV instead. Ortiz stated that he wants to continue fighting, but you have to believe that it may be unlikely after his arrest. We will certainly find out soon enough.
