Tito Ortiz Staves Off Retirement By Blasting Ryan Bader At UFC 132

Coming into UFC 132 everyone expected Tito Ortiz to be announcing his retirement after a loss against Ryan Bader, but no. Tito came out and submitted Ryan Bader in the first round. Ortiz first dropped Bader with a short sharp right hand. 

Once Bader was stunned, Ortiz was quick to pounce. He quickly gave up top position in order to get an arm-in guillotine. After the fight Ortiz told Joe Rogan that "a lot of wrestlers will tap to that." Bader, a one-time University of Arizona teammate of UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez, is definitely a wrestler.

UFC 132 results: Tito Ortiz defeats Ryan Bader by submission (guillotine choke) at 1:56 of round 1.

He's now a wrestler on a losing streak after losing a second straight fight. Bader's previous loss came against current UFC light heavyweight champ Jon jones. 

Ortiz, a long-time UFC champion at the turn of the century, had been threatened with imposed retirement had he picked up another loss. Prior to tonight, Ortiz hadn't won a UFC fight since 2006.
