Tito Ortiz returned home Tuesday after hospital treatment for a bout with flu, the fighter updated on his Twitter page.
“Nice to be home. They put six bags of fluid in me. I’m better now. I lost 15 pounds. I thought I had swine flu but I didn’t. Just a really bad flu,” Ortiz wrote.
Ortiz’s illness contributed in recent days to a lot of discussion whether he would be fighting opposing coach Chuck Liddell following the airing of all the taped The Ultimate Fighter 11 episodes.
