• Tito Ortiz says Stephan Bonnar crossed a line with trash talk

    Elias Cepeda at Cagewriter1 day ago

    UFC Hall of Fame members Tito Ortiz and Stephan Bonnar were involved in a bizarre incident inside a Bellator cage recently, to promote their fight against one another in November. Ortiz swung and missed with a shove directed at "RoboCop" after Bonnar insulted him with some very personal attacks and allegations.

    It used to be that Ortiz was the one insulting opponents as "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy." Now, the former light heavyweight world champion says Bonnar went too far, and personal with his words.

    "[Bonnar] started talking smack saying I need money to pay for my family because my chick took all my money or my ex-chick took all my money," Ortiz said in a recent interview.

  • Alistair Overeem wants to get back into UFC cage soon

    Elias Cepeda at Cagewriter2 days ago

    Alistair Overeem may have just gotten knocked out, but he wants to fight again as soon as possible. Overeem was knocked out by Ben Rothwell Sep. 5 but maintains that he was somehow not badly hurt enough to warrant taking time off.

    "[I’d like to fight] as soon as possible, because I was not out," he said in a recent interview.

    "I was not sleeping. I was just dazed, and Ben capitalized. So I guess if it’s up to me, not too far away."

    Whether or not his eyes closed, the loss was the third TKO or KO in Overeem's last four fights, and the ninth TKO or KO loss of the big man's career. Overeem has taken a great deal of punishment over the course of his long MMA and kickboxing career.

    Anthony Johnson is one of the hottest light heavyweights in the UFC, but he still wouldn't mind locking up with down-and-out heavyweight Alistair Overeem. The two former teammates have exchanged insults and allegations in recent weeks, with Johnson saying that Overeem was a selfish and dangerous training partner back when he did work with the Blackzilians team in Florida.

    "I'll fight him, I don't care. I've already trained with him before. Why not? To me it's just a fight. If the fans want to see it, I'm down to do it. I ain't said 'no' to any fight ever," Johnson claimed in a recent interview.
