Bonnar: ‘Tito should be thanking me for saving the sport he was destroying’

“If you think Scott Coker and Spike TV are writing this material, you’re nuts.”

“I cant believe people are this stupid. There are people with all these conspiracy theories. People think like, they got us all in the office with SpikeTV and the Bellator brass and we all planned out this elaborate plan.”

“Tito was headlining the main events of the PPVs before Ultimate Fighter 1, he was in all the big fights,” Bonnar said. “Go talk to Dana and Lorenzo, they were ready to sell the UFC. They were losing money, it was a sinking ship. So I had to step up alongside Forrest and save them. Save them from selling this organization, save it from extinction. So in a way, Tito was taking this sport under, and we stepped up and hit a home run and got people back on board. If anything, he should be thanking me.”

During a recent edition of “The MMA Hour” Stephan Bonnar discussed last week’s Bellator 123 brawl (Replay HERE) and his dislike for Tito Ortiz.
