Tito Ortiz Slams Anderson Silva for Landing Illegal Shots
UFC veteran Tito Ortiz couldn’t stand before Anderson Silva’s prowess in the recent boxing collision and was doomed down by a knockout in the maiden round. However. Ortiz isn’t ready to admit that he was outclassed clean by ‘The Spider’.
Putting dirt on Silva’s latest achievement, Ortiz accused the Brazilian legend of planting illegal shots. Although judges and referees haven’t conveyed the same, Tito Ortiz has already demeaned Anderson Silva’s Knockout win over him.
In an eye-catchy social media post, which he later deleted. Tito Ortiz wrote, “Nice right hand. But, I didn’t know punching behind the head were [sic] legal.”
He added, “I need to practice this combo. Now I know why the back of my head has been sore as hell.”
Nevertheless, Silva appears to be relishing a grand spotlight in the boxing world. Despite these accusations, the former UFC middleweight champion is considered to be an elite in all of the combat by many.
Aged 46, Silva could have rightly hung his gloves for all. But since departing with the UFC, he has found a new love for boxing and is already 2-0 in his last two fights.
After vanquishing former world champion boxer Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in June, the Brazilian star has now curbed down Ortiz in a spectacular fashion. Hence, there might be more if the ‘Spider Show’ before he relinquished his ride.
What’s next for Anderson Silva?
Several people have already demanded to see him face Jake Paul next in what could be an interesting scrap. But Paul hasn’t reacted to the idea, which leaves very minimum chances for the match to happen. There are many more names that can come up against Silva, as the exhibition fights are in the show.
The Brazilian Veteran slams many dominating opponents before in MMA and never backed up from a fight. As the returning of the boxing legends are on-trend we can surely expect Silva to get back in action sooner or later.
Do you think Anderson Silva should continue or retire?
