The former champion actually signed his contract while in the crowd at last nights Combate America’s 35 card.
A newly signed Ortiz would post the video of the contract signing on Instagram:
While signing the contract, an ecstatic Ortiz could be heard saying the following in the Instagram video (via Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting):
“I’m ready to fight. I’m ready to kick some f*cking ass. I’m back!!! Let’s have some fun.”
