Do or Die.<Br><Br>

That's what it is for former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Tito Ortiz who steps into the Octagon Saturday against Ryan Bader in what could very well be his last fight inside the UFC's cage if he loses.<Br><Br>

Ortiz hasn't won a fight since he beat Ken Shamrock five years ago and according to a previous interview, had to beg for one more chance in the UFC. Ortiz knows whats on the line when he fights Bader this weekend and spoke about it while on MMAWeekly Radio this week:<Br><Br>

"I can?t make decisions for my future, only Dana can, only the UFC can. There?s nowhere else for me to go. There?s no more Strikeforce. There?s no more Pride. There?s no more WEC. Everything?s been bought by the UFC, and they?re doing a great job of promoting one of the best brands in the world and that?s the Ultimate Fighting Championship. I?ve been fighting for the UFC since day one, since my career began back in 1997, and I don?t plan on going anywhere else. If Dana thinks it?s time for me to bounce, and go somewhere else or hang up my gloves, I don?t feel like it, but if they feel like it, I have no choice. There isn?t much of a choice I can do, besides fight my ass off on Saturday night and get my hand raised to let everyone know that I?m not going anywhere."<br><Br>
