Ortiz vs. Sonnen for Bellator 170
By Edward Carbajal
‘THE BAD BOY’ MEETS ‘THE BAD GUY’ ON JANUARY 21 AT THE FORUM IN LOS ANGELES
The news broke late Tuesday night through Chael Sonnen (28–14–1) and Tito Ortiz (18–12–1) on social media that their fight has been booked. Bellator 170 will have Ortiz welcome Sonnen back to MMA in the main event in Los Angeles, California. Although Ortiz was teasing a few locations earlier possibly New York since Bellator seems to be the only promotion not making their mark in the new territory.
The match up has two of the most charismatic men in mixed martial arts facing one another. If trash talk were a marketing course in MMA, it would be hard to argue against either man being the master instructor on selling a fight.
