Tito Ortiz Win Over Alberto El Patron Overturned To No Contest

Tito Ortiz’s victory over Alberto El Patron at Combate Americas 51 back in December of last year has been overturned to a no-contest ruling by the Texas commission under mysterious circumstances.

At this stage it’s not clear exactly why Ortiz’s first round rear-naked choke submission victory won’t stand, with the commission only saying that, “The results of the fight were changed pending further investigation.”

However, the 45-year-old Ortiz, who had been coming off back-to-back wins over Chael Sonnen and Chuck Liddell, is adamant that he’s doing nothing wrong.

“This is a BS claim and will get overturned,” Ortiz wrote on Instagram. “I promise you all. Sad way to get attention at my expense. #guiltyuntilproveninnocent.”

He followed that up with another Instagram post later in the day that ended on a more positive note.

“So today was a really disparaging day due to trumped up bs by the Texas Athletic Commission and my last fight. However I came home to an unexpected surprise from @danawhite and @ufc that made my day!! My official Hall of Fame Jacket along with a letter from Dana. I am very thankful for this and for the many amazing memories I made with UFC!! Thank you! #mma #UFC #HOF.”
