Tito Ortiz is one of the most brilliant and charismatic champions of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
It’s pretty easy to characterize Ortiz – impudent handsome man, with the appearance of Vin Diesel, manners of a village hooligan and an incredible cannon blow. Tito is appreciated for shocking.
Each of his fights is not only a demonstration of sportsmanship, but also a high-profile show with an obligatory scandal, a sea of blood, a defeated and often humiliated rival. Some people can dislike Ortiz, but one cannot help but admire his ability to win the rating even without this popular UFC to an unprecedented high. This brilliant man in every sense is always in the center of attention.
To get such recognition, Ortiz used to spend 8-9 hours a day six days a week for training. He fought every day, sparring four times a week. Training was tough and severe. He always felt like he should catch up with everyone else. This man has been training for so long.
Tito trained so long that he became wiser. He looked at Randy Couture and wondered how he did that his training was easier and at the same time preparation was ideal.
The most important conclusion he drew was that one needs more quality, not quantity. That’s exactly what he did. Tito sparred three times a week and fought two or three times a week. Practiced jiu-jitsu two or three times a week, worked on his paws every day.
The fighter reconsidered all his training mainly because of surgeries. Tito hired a personal trainer Mike Giovanni from California, who made him a very thorough training with a mask on his face. Ortiz worked a lot with the ropes.
Once, Tito Ortiz went to a place called Lunar Health and Wellness in California where was a high-altitude imitation machine. It emitted a height of 24,000 feet, so he performed the same type of training as he had in already familiar Big Bear.
