Bellator 170: “Ortiz vs. Sonnen” goes down Sat., Jan. 21, 2017 at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. The main event is the much anticipated showdown between Tito Ortiz and Chael Sonnen, renewing a rivalry that dates back to their amateur wrestling days in college.

Sonnen has been a nonstop hype machine ever since he signed with Bellator MMA, but as the date of his promotional debut draws closer, it seems Sonnen may finally be wearying of the media work and eager to get to the fight.

It’s either that, or he just doesn’t like Marc Raimondi that much.

In the course of this interview for MMA Fighting, Sonnen appears to completely lose his patience after answering questions about the new unified rules of mixed martial arts.

“No, let’s move on. This is stupid. Go. Ask something else. Don’t edit that out. Don’t be one of those scumbags that edits that out. I said your question was stupid, put that in there.”

Raimondi tries to respond that he’s “not the editor” but Sonnen isn’t having it and the situation quickly escalates.

“My wife’s filming it back here and she’ll put it out if you don’t. I’m letting you know now for whatever chicken is… give me the fucking microphone! You know what? I’m done.”

And thus the proceedings came to an abrupt end, but you can still watch the video of his tirade above — and his fight with Tito Ortiz on Saturday night.
