Tito Ortiz unretires, signs with Combate Americas

Tito Ortiz is back.

The UFC Hall of Famer has signed a multi-fight deal with Combate Americas, a promotion official told ESPN.

Ortiz is expected to debut in the fall, though his opponent isn't finalized at this time. It is also unknown which weight class he'll initially compete in.

Ortiz, 44, said after his win over Chuck Liddell in November that he was done fighting, though he seemed to change his mind shortly thereafter. Ortiz has come out of retirement before, so this isn't anything new for the "Huntington Beach Bad Boy," who is considered one of the all-time greats in MMA history

A former UFC light heavyweight champion, Ortiz will enter Combate Americas with a 20-12-1 record and riding a two-fight winning streak. This will mark the fifth promotion he has fought for.
