Former UFC Champion Tito Ortiz is going to fight Chael Sonnen on January, 21st at Bellator 170 in California. Ortiz took the time to tell TMZ Sports what happened the first time that they originally faced each other in college wrestling.
Sonnen has much higher wrestling credentials than Ortiz and was a 2 time All-American at the University of Oregon. MMA is a different kind of competition than wrestling and one could argue that Ortiz has accomplished a lot more in MMA than Sonnen.
What both Ortiz and Sonnen are known for are being some of the best trash-talkers in MMA. Many years before Conor McGregor came around, Ortiz and Sonnen were the kings of pre-fight press conferences and now they can finally face each other.
Ortiz vs Sonnen will serve as the main event at Bellator 170 and this fight will be at light-heavyweight. Sonnen spent most of his career at middleweight, but has mainly fought at light-heavyweight as of late.
