Los Angeles – Sept. 19, 2014 – Following Bellator fighter and UFC Hall of Famer Stephan Bonnar’s discussion about his opponent Tito Ortiz on AXS TV’S INSIDE MMA last week, Ortiz joined the show in-studio tonight to rebut his personal accusations . During the interview with series hosts Bas Rutten and Ron Kruck, who filled in for regular host Kenny Rice this week, Ortiz takes his own verbal shots at Bonnar, declaring he will put Bonnar ‘back into retirement’ Nov. 15.

Said Ortiz:

“I’m not gonna try to finish this fight. It’s gonna be 15 minutes of just trying to torture him. I’m gonna make his face as bloody as possible. And I heard an interview he was talking about saying the people in the front row bring plastic because blood is gonna be everywhere. Yes, your blood is gonna be everywhere. I’m gonna dismantle this guy. He’s gonna come out of retirement to fight me, I’m gonna put him back into retirement.”
