This Saturday Bellator MMA will make history with ‘Dynamite’. They’ll feature both Bellator MMA fights and GLORY kickboxing fights in the same night, in the same venue, and at times going on at the same time.

Also, we’ll get to see a one-night four-man light heavyweight tournament to determine the next title challenger. In the main event, that same title will be on the line when champ Liam McGeary takes on MMA legend Tito Ortiz.

McGeary comes into the fight undefeated at 10-0 and will look to take out ‘The Huntington Beach Bad Boy’ to make it 11-0. Ahead of the fight, McGeary spoke with MMAMania and said that he’s not overlooking Ortiz at all but does say that he’s ‘not the Tito of 95’.

“At the end of the day, I’m a man, he’s a man, you’re a man. We all fight. This is what we do. He’s just another guy who I am going to go in and cause destruction or break faces as they say — as I say.

“He’s got that old-man strength. He’s strong. He’s powerful and he’s dangerous with his wrestling. He’s still a danger. I’m not taking him lightly. I’m not taking anyone lightly, but he’s not the Tito of 95. He’s now the Tito of 2015. This is a whole different ball game. The training has changed. The whole level of fighter has changed.”
