“I should’ve never said the things I said” – Tito Ortiz says he apologized to Anderson Silva for his comments about Bruce Lee
In what could only be described as a pleasant change of pace, Tito Ortiz recently took to social media in a bid to apologize to Anderson Silva. ‘The Spider’ knocked Ortiz out last weekend in a boxing match
The apology came after the former UFC light heavyweight champion made comments about Silva’s fighting style resembling that of Bruce Lee.
Tito Ortiz took to social media in a bid to release a tell-all after what went down at the recent Triller pay-per-view. Referring to their pre-fight media scrum, Ortiz admitted that he regretted how he handled things.
Although he claimed that he was only trying to sell the fight, he went on to say that he should have avoided unnecessary conflict.
“I tried to sell the fight, talking about Bruce Lee. I should’ve never said the things that I said. I apologized to him about that. But once again, you know, when you’re caught in the moment and you’re in a position, trying to sell a fight. As I always do, I wore my heart on my sleeve. That’s the way I am, that’s who I am. And I will never change that,” declared Tito Ortiz.
