Is UFC Champ Tito Ortiz Up For DWTS Season 16??

If you don’t know, Tito Ortiz is a UFC champ who recently retired. Tito talks at length about bullying and fighting against it – fantastic cause. At the end of the discussion, of COURSE Access Hollywood has to ask him if he would consider doing DWTS. It’s SO random, that I have to wonder if they were prompted to ask. Anyway, at first he’s like “oh, I took a little interest in it” but as he goes on it sounds like he’d like to show Chuck Liddell how it’s done and he said he always told his fans that if he did it would be after he retired…and he’s now retired. So…who knows? We’ve had more than one celebrity respond to a random question like this in a somewhat vague manner who then ended up being on the show that season.

What do you think?? And do you think that this is just a coincidence?? :-D  Derek is the only reason I know who Tito is, him being a massive UFC fan and all.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Shakira Performs on Dancing with the Stars – UFC Goes Down Fighting

Tonight’s episode had a little bit of a shock too it, but we’re still a couple episodes from the real shocking eliminations. However, what I think is impressive is that Dancing with the Stars was able to get a big name like Shakira on the show. Granted 14 million viewers and probably a chunk of cash will convince a lot of performers to come on the show.

Since I’m always listing the music from the show, Shakira performed “Did It Again” and “Hips Don’t Lie” Shakira - Oral Fixation, Vol. 2 - Hips Don't Lie (feat. Wyclef Jean) with the Shakira dancers. I think I prefer when they use the pro ballroom dancers myself.

I have to admit that I thought Chuck’s teddy bear quality and also the UFC fan base would have carried him through a little farther. I guess UFC doesn’t really get into ballroom dancing. Although, it’s not revealing anything when I say that the NFL (Michael Irvin) has a bit larger audience than the UFC.
