The fight between Tito Ortiz and Chael Sonnen continues to be a hot topic in the world of MMA after Chael Sonnen went on record this week to say that Tito Ortiz had verbally tapped during the fight.
“Tito tapped in that fight. I knew Tito tapped when he tapped. I heard Tito verbally tap and I’ve never said a word about it, privately to Tito at the press conference or to you guys. I never said anything and the reason is, first off, when you lose, you just take your loss. It’s not a tap if the referee doesn’t call it a tap so therefore, Tito didn’t tap. I thought he tapped, and I let a move go.”
Today, the referee of the fight, veteran ‘Big John’ McCarthy, who might be the most experienced MMA referee in the planet, took it to social media to give his two cents about Chael Sonnen’s claims.
