(Video) Jenna Jameson on Tito Ortiz: He Did Not Beat Me
Jenna Jameson on Tito Ortiz: “He did not beat me.” After allegations from Jenna Jameson that her husband, UFC fighter Tito Ortiz, threw her into a shower at their home, Jenna later recounts her statement to reporters saying that no, in fact Tito “did not beat me.
Prior to this, Tito issued a statement with his attorney saying that Jenna is making these domestic violence allegations because she has been addicted to oxycontin for the past year. In an earlier satement to reporters before heading out to Las Vegas, when reporters told Jenna of Tito’s statement that she was addicted to oxycontin, , Jenna responded with “Yah, because he’s trying to save his a$.”
Don’t get me wrong, but I actually kind of like Tito. On all the Ultimate Fighting shows he’s been on, he has had nothing but a great attitude and support for the fighters he has worked with. However, I think his choice for a wife leaves something to be desired. For their twin kids’ sake, I hope they work ALL their problems out.
Whether or not Jenna is addicted to oxycontin or Tito is guilty of the domestic violence allegations, did anyone out there NOT see this coming? I mean come on, the “Huntington Beach Bad Boy” marries a former adult film star? I also just read that they met on myspace. Myspace, are you kidding me? Did you think this was going to end like Ozzie and Harriet? Do you expect them to sit down and discuss their problems rationally like Ward and June Cleaver would have?
That’s what I thought.

The rumblings of the UFC counter programming Strikeforce got much stronger today when it was reported that Chuck Liddell would be facing former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin at UFC Fight Night on April 17 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Liddell was originally reported to be facing Tito Ortiz at UFC 115 but according to Fighters Only, Ortiz is dealing with something that may significantly impact his future as a fighter and it’s not an injury.
Update: 2:38 PM: Sherdog.com and MMAJunkie.com are now reporting that the bout between Liddell and Franklin will now take place at UFC 115 in June, not the rumored show for April 17 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Update: 8:00 PM: UFC president Dana White has now posted a response on his Twitter saying, “Not true! We are doing Couture vs. Franklin, not Chuck.” Stay tuned for more.

Dana White: Randy Couture (not Chuck Liddell) vs Rich Franklin at UFC 115 in Vancouver: ”
Former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin (25-5) will not face Chuck Liddell (21-7) at UFC 115 on June 12 in Vancouver despite numerous reports that surfaced earlier today.
On the contrary, ‘Ace’ will headline the show opposite former heavyweight and light heavyweight champion, Randy Couture, in a 205-pound showdown, according to UFC President Dana White.
In addition, White assured fans that ‘nothing happened to Tito’ and that he and the ‘Huntington Beach Bad Boy’ are still ‘cool,’ indicating that he is perhaps still set to battle nemesis Chuck Liddell as planned at the conclusion of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 11.
More on this breaking news as soon as possible.
In addition to Couture vs. Franklin, UFC 115 is expected to feature a heavyweight mash-up between Mirko Cro Cop and Pat Barry while welterweights Martin Kampmann and Paulo Thiago make their case for 170-pound contendership.
Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for future updates on this still-developing fight card.

UFC Quick Quote: Frankie Edgar is used to fighting outside — though it usually goes down at the Jersey Shore: ”
‘It’s great to be recognized by the UFC as the No. 1 contender. I put a lot of work into this. It’s midnight right now and I left my house at 5:30 in the morning and I won’t be home until after midnight. I work hard and I think I deserve it… By the time nighttime rolls in Abu Dhabi (the card begins at 9 p.m.) it should be a comfortable temperature… Being in the desert, it might be a little drier than I’m used to. But I’m going to go out there 10 days beforehand to adjust… I’ve fought outdoors before, just mostly in Seaside.’
The challenger to UFC lightweight champion B.J. Penn’s crown at UFC 112, Frankie Edgar, talked to APP.com about his number one contendership status and the potential obstacles that fighting outside in Abu Dhabi can present. While some people believe that Edgar isn’t quite deserving of a title fight at this point, “The Answer” trusts in his abilities and feels as though the shot is rightfully his. And though UFC 112 is set to take place outdoors on April 10 in Abu Dhabi for the first time in the promotion’s history, Frankie says the adjustment won’t take much getting used to as he has already thrown down under the moonlight before… though most of the action has taken place in Seaside Heights. So will fighting outdoors be a problem for either guy in the lightweight title bout? And if so, who has the advantage in previous outdoor fighting experience — B.J. Penn in his tropical paradise of Hawaii, or Frankie Edgar getting dirty at “The Shore?”
