Tito Ortiz vs. Mark Coleman “Confirmed” For UFC 106 on November 21

Tito OrtizTito Ortiz’s return to the Octagon against Mark Coleman will co-headline UFC 106 on November 21 in Las Vegas, according to Mike DiSabato of MMA Authentics, a sponsor of Coleman’s, who tweeted confirmation of the light heavyweight bout on Tuesday.

After completing his UFC contract last July in a loss to Lyoto Machida, Ortiz (15-6-1) considered offers with EliteXC, Strikeforce, and Affliction but ultimately mended his relationship with UFC President Dana White and re-signed with the promotion. “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” has not won since an October 2006 victory over Ken Shamrock, suffering losses to Chuck Liddell and Machida as well as a draw to Rashad Evans following the win.

Coleman (16-9), a former heavyweight who was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame last year, suffered a third-round TKO to Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in his return to the UFC earlier this year, but bounced back with a unanimous decision over Stephan Bonnar at UFC 100 last month.
