Former ultimate fighting champion Tito Ortiz has been placed on 36 months probation and ordered to enrol in an alcohol education programme after pleading no contest to a Dui charge.

The mixed martial arts star was slapped with the count in January (14) after he crashed his Porsche sports car on a Los Angeles freeway hours after he had been partying at the Playboy Mansion.
