Tito Ortiz vs Babalu at Next Affliction PPV?

At the Affliction Post-Fight Press Conference when Renato "Babalu" Sobral was asked about a possible match-up with Antonio Rogerio Nogueria he seemed disinterested and said he understood it was a business, but that is not the fight he was interested in. However, when the name Tito Ortiz was mentioned, he lit up and called it "my dreamfight".

Despite the very public courtship of Ortiz by EliteXC, he still remains unsigned and following the success of Affliction's first Pay-Per-View it makes perfect sense for him to sign on for a match with Babalu at Affliction's second PPV event (Tom Atencio said it could be as early as November). At the event on Saturday night, Tito sat next to Donald Trump and earned a loud ovation from the fans in attendance. Even though his record in the ring has fallen short recently, he remains a huge star in the world of MMA and would be a major addition to the Affliction lineup.

I see no reason why tito should not sign with Affliction... I mean he's there for the money and fame, not pride and wins, so Affliction would be his best choice.

Tito just needs to find his heart again and get motivated to be champion again.
