When Tito Ortiz or Chael Sonnen is involved in a fight, there’s one thing you can count on: an abundance of trash talk. There has certainly been no shortage of such when the two were matched up in a fight to headline Saturday’s Bellator 170.
But things might have crossed the line, even for the all is fair in love and war style of Sonnen, when he took a shot at Ortiz’s ex, adult film star Jenna Jameson.
After Ortiz proclaimed Sonnen’s mouth has gotten him every big fight he’s had, Sonnen took a dig not only at Ortiz, but more squarely at Jameson.
“Tito always says I’m using my mouth to get my opportunities. The only person I know that made money using their mouth is his ex-wife,” said Sonnen, later adding, “They don’t call you the Bad Guy for nothing.”
Jameson addressed Sonnen’s comment on Twitter, defusing much of his thunder by saying, “To everyone thinking @ChaelSonnen‘s remark at the press conference for his fight with Tito bothered me, it didn’t… he stated the obvious.”
Even so, did Sonnen take the trash talk a step too far?
