Tito Ortiz: “Seraldo Babalu”
I don’t mean to hate on Tito Ortiz as a person or as a fighter, despite the fact that I used to despise him. In fact, I’ve slowly grown more appreciative of “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” as he nears the end of his career, and I can even admit that he deserves a place in theHall of Fame.
That being said, this is one of the funniest things I have ever seen in MMA.
This isn’t “so bad it’s good”, it’s “so bad it’s amazing”. I still remember how it felt to see Tito Ortiz completely botch this interview: I almost couldn’t believe what I had just heard.
This interview was that archetypal kind of joke that can’t get out of your head no matter how hard you try. And no matter how hard you try to contain yourself, just thinking about it causes you to burst out laughing no matter where you are. For days after this interview, just thinking of “Seraldo Babalu” caused me to burst out laughing at home, at work, at school, at the grocery store, and just about everywhere else I went.
I’m actually laughing about it right now, as I type this. Poor Tito Ortiz.
