UFC HISTORY: At UFC 13 Tito was an alternate in the under 200 pound tournament. He quickly destroyed Wes Albritton with strikes on the ground and got into the main draw when Enson Inoue won his fight but could not continue on in the tournament due to an injury. In the finals Tito faced Lion’s Den fighter Guy Mezger. Within the first minute of the match Ortiz trapped Mezger in an inside cradle and began delivering knees to his head. John McCarthy ordered the fighters to separate and Tito thought that he had won. Many people including commentator Bruce Beck thought that Mezger tapped out. McCarthy ruled that Mezger had not tapped out and that he ordered the stand up to check cuts on Mezger’s head. The fight resumed and after a few blows, Tito shot in for a takedown and got caught in a guillotine choke by Mezger that ended the bout. Though he ended up with a loss, it was an impressive debut for Tito Ortiz.
