NO, he looked like he was in LaLa Land.

You mean the fight where he stood toe to toe until his jaw was broken and had to go to the hospital?


So you are basically saying his fight with Floyd was scripted?

Hey, Floyd, in so in so round I'm going to head-butt you, then kiss you and that will be a signal to punch me twice on the chin when I'm not prepared. Make it two real good hard shots so that I go to LaLa Land risking embarrassment and a concussion.

Yep! Look how happy he was after the Floyd fight ...... and the Maidan fight .... and the Lopez fight .... See a pattern here?

I think its just his personality. He may get over things quickly and/or hides his sadness in a smile after such events. Smiling can be used as a tool to release chemicals to make you happy.

You are correct and proved my point. He feels embarrassed that he quit(s) and once the event is over, he makes himself smile to feel better. I'm honestly not knocking him, but he has quit or looked for a way out in the 3 fights I mentioned.

No it wouldn't. The only thing consistent about Ortiz is that he is a head case. He was in with a mentally tougher fighter and was looking for a way out. No more no less.
