When you think about Tito Ortiz and what he's done for this company it was never a matter of if he would be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame - it was just a matter of when. Dana White confirmed this news with mmaweekly yesterday following the 'UFC 150: Henderson vs. Edgar II' ticket on-sale presser in Denver.
