"There's a possibility of me doing jiu jitsu again," Ortiz said. "I've been going to a lot of these amateur wrestling meets with my son, who's 10 years old now. Maybe we could do a father-son wrestling meet or something. Right now, I'm only four weeks out of neck surgery, and then I have to get the ACL surgery. I still need to recover from that before I start thinking about anything, and if I'll compete again. You never know, I may come out of retirement. It's all about how my body recovers. Right now, I just want to focus on my family and my businesses. Right now, the chances of me coming out of retirement are about one in a million."
Ortiz added that he misses the glorious limelight of being a UFC fighter.
"As far as missing being under the spotlight, I miss it a little bit, but as far as the fighting, not an ounce of it [laughs]," Ortiz said. "You know, I've had some major surgeries, and I put my body through Hell. I did what I set out to do, and I went out on my own terms. Management is my next step, and I'm excited to see what the future holds for me there."
Ortiz explained that he has forgiven Forrest Griffin for interrupting the post-fight interview he was supposed to do with Joe Rogan.
"What Forrest did was really disrespectful," Ortiz said. "What I thought was going to happen was that my hand was going to get raised, and when it didn't, he just added to that feeling of being bummed out from the loss. It's like he went to smear it in, and it was a damper on the whole night, because I think my fans deserved more than that. After the fight was over, he came up to me and apologized and admitted that he had handled things wrong. I've absolutely forgiven him for it, because life is too short to hold on to things like that. People make mistakes. I've always been a fan of Forrest and always liked him, and even that bit of ugliness he showed won't change that."
