Tito Ortiz is doing his best to stay in the news now that his Hall of Fame career inside of the Octagon is officially over. Since hanging up his gloves Ortiz has turned his attention to managing fighters. The 'Primetime 360' stable that he currently manages may be thin right now but one of it's clients has been making huge waves. That would be none other than former Strikeforce Featherweight Queen Cristiane 'Cyborg' Justino. On a recent edition of Inside MMA on AXS TV, Ortiz explained that 'Cyborg' has requested to be released from her current UFC contract. Ortiz claims that his client cannot compete in the 135 pound division, which is the only women's division in the UFC at this time, and therefore would like to be let go. Unfortunately for Cyborg, in terms on making big bank, there are not a whole lot of options out there. With Bellator looking to concentrate on a 125 pound women's division, and Strikeforce no longer being with us, Invicta FC would look to be the last option. What doesn't really make any sense though is that the UFC already offered Ortiz and his client in the terms of their contract an opportunity to make her first fight or two in Invicta. So why ask for a release when Invicta is in cahoots with the UFC just to go to Invicta? It's a head scratcher I must say, but this isn't the first time Tito has elicited this sort of response from the masses. Maybe he knows something we don't. Or maybe, just maybe, he has no idea what he's doing here. My question to you guys is this: Is Ortiz advising his client to ask for a release really the best move for future business?You guys tell me in the comments section.
