“Tito always says I’m using my mouth to get my opportunities. The only person that I know that made money using their mouth was his ex-wife,” Sonnen said of Ortiz’s ex-girlfriend and adult film actress, Jenna Jameson.

“Well, just to correct you, it was never no marriage,” Ortiz said and paused for a moment. “You’re a f**king punk dude. That’s what you call class, compared to no class.”

“That was a nasty line by me,” Sonnen said with a big smile.

“No class at all. That’s why you see him in thongs, jeans, and a f**king t-shirt,” Sonnen said. “No class.”

Later in the press conference, Tito laid into Sonnen and his career.

You’re the bad guy because of me,” Ortiz said as Sonnen has admitted following Ortiz’s highlighted career. “You try to talk because of me.
