Default What is up with Tito????

ermmmm.. this is "Odd".. why doesn't TMZ run with this story.. it has much more "power" than others they have ran with lately...

http://www.mmamania.com/2011/5/17/21...bond#storyjump


I'll say one thing about Tito Ortiz, he certainly knows how to show his gratitude.

The former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion helped an "indigent" Keith Harriman post his $500,000 bond required to secure his release from Nevada's Clark County Detention Center.

Harriman is charged with 12 felony counts in a plot to have his son Dominick killed.

Sounds like a swell guy. So why is "The Huntington Beach Bondsman" coughing up the cash to keep him out of the slammer? Well, turns out Harriman's brother Wayne was one of the key figures in reconciling Oritz and UFC President Dana White, which eventually led to a new Zuffa contract and another shot inside the Octagon.

More of the gory details, courtesy of The Las Vegas Review Journal, after the jump:


Quote:
Prosecutors have been wanting to know where Keith Harriman got the money to post the bond for his release from the Clark County Detention Center, because he had declared he was indigent and needed representation from the public defender's office.

District Judge David Barker ordered Keith Harriman to say where the money came from at the hearing Friday. Harriman said Ortiz put up the bulk of the collateral needed from a bondsman. Several people were surprised to hear Ortiz's name announced by Harriman.

Ortiz, a former Ultimate Fighting Championship light heavyweight champion, apparently has a relationship with Keith Harriman's brother, Wayne Harriman, a used car dealer in Las Vegas.

According to published reports, Wayne Harriman helped bridge a rift between Ortiz and UFC chairman Dana White that led to a six-fight contract.

At a preliminary hearing in February, Dominick Harriman testified his father wanted him dead because he told insurance fraud investigators his father's $160,000 burglary loss claim was a scam to feed a crack cocaine addiction. Dominick Harriman also said his father was angry because he had slept with both his dad's ex-girlfriend and his ex-wife.

Dominick Harriman was shot at least nine times Aug. 27 at the used car dealership where he worked for his uncle, Wayne Harriman, at Nice Cars of Nevada, 3401 S. Decatur Blvd. The shooter has not been identified.
What happens in Vegas ... well, you know the rest.

Ortiz (15-8-1), who hasn't won a fight in nearly five years, recently ditched Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC Fight Night 26 in Seattle thanks to a "minor concussion" that compelled him to withdraw from the March 26 event.

His last appearance was a lopsided unanimous decision loss to former TUF student Matt Hamill at UFC 121: "Lesnar vs. Velasquez" back in October 2010.

Will his next appearance, against Ryan Bader at UFC 132 on July 2, be his last inside the Octagon? Either way, you can be sure the Harriman's will be cheering him on. They may need another loan if this thing makes it to appeals.

Bizarre.

I only advocate sharing women with my woman. Not with other men. That's just wrong.

I don't cop off with other women (assuming "copping off" means having sex with). If she were so inclined to share an adventure with another woman and I, that would be cool with me. However, no other men may be involved in any situation.
