Tito Ortiz Trying To Get MMA Legends Together To Crash UFC 20th Anniversary Event

The 20th anniversary show for the UFC takes place at UFC 167 on Saturday, November 16 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. UFC President Dana White has stated that he will be bringing people to the event associated in the past with the organization.

UFC Hall of Famer and former UFC light heavyweight Tito Ortiz took to Twitter yesterday and was implying to former UFC champions and MMA legends Randy Couture, Frank Shamrock and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson that they should attend the 20th anniversary show.

Ken Shamrock was in favor of the idea.

Couture loved the idea.

Shamrock says to Couture that he should be there for all he’s done for the UFC.

Do you think that the UFC should invite them to the show even though Frank Shamrock, Couture, Ortiz and Jackson are signed to deals with Viacom. Will the five legends crash the party?
