“I knew I had something left to give. I knew it was a matter of the right fight coming along, so when I heard Schlemenko call me out, it was like, okay, bring it. Shlemenko wants to make his name off of Tito Ortiz. He’s not the first person ever to do this. People have been trying to use my name ever since I was the champ.”
“You know what? I still want to fight Rampage. But that’s for later. Right now all I’m thinking his Shlemenko. I’m eating Shlemenko, I’m sleeping Shlemenko, I’m shitting Shlemenko. I promise the fans who tune in on May 17 that I’m going to give them everything I have.”
In a recent interview with MMAFighting.com, former UFC light-heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz discussed his upcoming Bellator bout against Alexander Shlemenko.
