We're back with another Broiler of the Week and this time it is newly signed Bellator fighter and MMA Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz.
Ortiz is coming out of retirement and he will fight a fellow former UFC champ, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. The fight was announced Wednesday night and will go down at Bellator's first pay-per-view, November 2nd.
Both fighters were UFC champions and are both riding three-fight losing streaks. Ortiz retired after losing to Forrest Griffin in 2012. Ortiz went 1-7-1 in his last 9 fights with the promotion. He was the light heavyweight champion from 2000-2003.
We definitely aren't going to pay for this fight via PPV but it is interesting. We are not kidding ourselves thinking this fight is anything but what it is. 2 former greats, well past their primes, duking it out. Let's hope this fight is more exciting then their last few sleepers in the UFC.
