"I have been fighting for 15 years and there have been trainers that tried to push that on me and I've said that if I have to do that kind of stuff, I am done with the sport, I wont compete any more because I want to be a natural athlete. And I have, for fifteen years I've competed and taken my drug tests, random drug tests, and passed everything because I am a true athlete. A lot of these guys are taking these supplements to make themselves more impressive or whatever, to become the fighters they want to be." - Tito Ortiz
Ortiz's advice to fighters is to simply not to take any questionable supplements and if they chose to do so, they shouldn't be in the sport according to fightersonlymagazine.co.uk.
For the 15 year MMA veteran, Ortiz is approaching the conclusion of his career. In fact his next fight, a rubber match against Forrest Griffin at UFC 148, will be the last for the man formerly known as the "Huntington Beach Bad Boy."
"My next fight will be my last fight. I am going out on my own terms, I have had a long and illustrious career of fifteen years. I'm the longest-competing UFC fighter to date, most consecutive UFC appearances, most light-heavyweight title defenses," Ortiz said.
Looking ahead, Ortiz hopes to continue to work for the UFC but in an office rather than an Octagon and has already received numerous analysis positions with companies such as ESPN according to multiple sources.
