UFC Star Tito Ortiz Crashes His Rolls-Royce

These are sad days for fans of the British luxury car brand, and for one Rolls-Royce own in particular: Tito Ortiz, the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion managed to damage his Phantom.

Also known as an amateur racer, Ortiz was involved in a three-car collision and his Rolls took the hit where it hurts the most - right in its famous chrome grille, TMZ reports.

It happened in Costa Mesa, California, near a Denny's restaurant the past weekend, and luckily no one, besides the vehicles involved, got hurt. While we don’t know who was at fault for the incident, a Twitter feed from Ortiz revealed that it ended up with a really damaged pocket - he will have to pay for the repairs himself, as the insurance would not cover the expenses.

And to put an emphasis on the special bond between a man and his car, according to the aforementioned source, he also added "I cried a little because it's my favorite car but it will be new in no time." At least, he has a nice shoulder to cry on... that of the former porn star Jenna Jameson, his current girlfriend.

This is not the first car crash that Tito Ortiz is involved in the last months. As a participant in the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race, the American mixed martial artist crashed a race-ready Scion tC during a practice run. The first impact happened when he drove the car into a sidewall and then hit the rear bumper of another car that was driven by “Blood Diamond” star Djimon Hounsou.
