Chael Sonnen had the better trash talk, but Tito Ortiz definitely looked bigger once the shirts came off.
The time for talk is over, and with the conclusion of today’s Bellator 170 weigh-ins there’s nothing left for Tito Ortiz and Chael Sonnen to do but throw down in the cage on Saturday night. The two fighters engaged in an intense stare down in front of the assembled media but kept things peaceful with members of both fighters’ families watching on stage. Both fighters made weight with Chael coming in at 205.8 and Tito at 204.8 pounds.

Ortiz arrived on stage with a few fashion accessories: first, a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat to support his buddy Donald Trump on his inauguration day. Clashing with the red cap was a blue t-shirt that read ‘Bully Proof’, possibly in response to the trash talk Sonnen has been throwing his way since their fight was announced last November. But the biggest statement he made was when he took off his shirt and looked absolutely jacked, especially in comparison to the ‘basically clean’ Sonnen.

Win or lose, this is set to be Tito Ortiz’s last fight due to concerns he has over concussions he’s suffered over his career. For Chael Sonnen’s part, he’s just getting warmed up.
“I’m on a legends ass whupping tour and I’m starting with Tito Ortiz. I’m coming knocking on Wanderlei Silva’s door!” he declared.
