It was a bad night for “The Bad Guy” at Bellator 170 last Saturday as Tito Ortiz submitted Chael Sonnen early in the first round to hand him his first loss in Bellator. Sonnen had talked a lot of trash leading up to the fight and made cracks about Ortiz’s finances and ex-wife that were headlines online.
According to Ortiz after the fight Sonnen came into his locker room to congratulate him on the win but the former UFC champ cut him off. FightHubTV got the scoop in the video after the event.
“I didn’t say anything after the fight. He came to my dressing room and said, ‘Good fight, it was an honor, da da da’ and I go, ‘You’ve got to apologize to me in public.’ So we are going to see if he has enough balls to apologize to me in public. I am a kid who has a lot of respect. I believe in respect. Talking about another person’s family is something wrong to do and for what he did, that’s just the wrong thing to do. That’s always my three rules of sh#t talking: You don’t talk about a person’s family, you don’t talk about a person’s country, and you don’t lie about a person. He did all three of those things, and the big man upstairs took care of it.”
Ortiz will now walk away from MMA and transition into coaching or managing. Sonnen will try his hand at fighting in Bellator again later this year likely against Wanderlei Silva.
