Ortiz replaced; Chuck Liddell vs. Rich Franklin at UFC 115 (Pic Inside)

The rumor mill is once again working it’s magic, and the rumors look to be correct.

Reports have surfaced saying “The Huntinton Beach Bad Boy” Tito Ortiz was replaced, the last week of filming, as a coach on The Ultimate Fighter Season 11. Details also have risen about Ortiz having 4 hernitted disc’s in his neck.

Neither is good news for the 35 year-old, who may never grace the inside of the Octagon again.
