The Huntington Beach Bad Boy Tito Ortiz wants another fight soon, well according to his coach anyways.

Tito Ortiz is coming off a win over Bellator middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko in May.

“He did an excellent fight against Shlemenko,” Cordeiro told MMAFighting.com. “He will fight again in November. We don’t know the opponent yet, but he’s already training.”

Ortiz has 8 knockouts, 5 submissions and 5 decision victories, but also has been knocked out four times, submitted twice in his MMA career.

“He got an excellent win. This man trains a lot, he deserves all the respect,” he said. “He’s a true legend. He trains every day and deserves everything he has.”

“Who knows, maybe Ortiz vs. Rampage,” Cordeiro said.

Ortiz is 2-6-1 in his last ten and 1-3 in his last five fights. His last win was over Ryan Bader via Guillotine choke at UFC 132 – Cruz vs. Faber 2 on Jul / 02 / 2011.

“It was planned to happen before, so it might happen in the future,” Cordeiro said. “This fight will probably happen one day.”

Ortiz is next fight is unknown, but Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney said: “We’ve got to sit down with Tito now, and I’ve got to figure out how to con him into a tournament, trying to take a run at a world title.”
