Joey Beltran (16-11 MMA) will square off with Kendall Grove (21-15 MMA) in the co-main event of Bellator 143 later this month in Texas.
“The Mexicutioner” recently sat down with BJPENN.com’s Chris Taylor where he discussed a number of topics, including potential future opponents.
Beltran acknowledged that he would like to finish his career with some ‘big money’ fights, so Mr. Taylor suggested that he should perhaps call-out a ‘big name’ like Bellator heavyweight Kimbo Slice. Here is Beltran’s response to that idea:
“Hell yeah. I would go right now. I would take that fight (Kimbo) right now. I would walk in that cage at 203 pounds and f*ck him up!”
Beltran continued by revealing the fight he wants more than anything:
“But you know, the fight that I really really want and that I’ve asked for from Bellator officials on more than one occasion is Tito Ortiz. Let’s be honest here, Liam McGeary is going to f*cking mop him up. And then after that, he’s (Ortiz) going to be looking for an easy fight, cause that’s what he wants.”
“Hopefully after he loses to McGeary one of his guys is like ‘Why not take an easy fight against that Joey Beltran guy? He sucks right? Your way better than him Tito, you were the champ for I don’t know how long, however many years ago. But you would f*ck up Joey Beltran man, why don’t you fight him, he would be an easy fight.’” suggested Beltran. “Oh my god I would love that!”
If Beltran is able to defeat Kendall Grove on September 25 would you like to see him faceoff with either Kimbo Slice or Tito Ortiz? Sound off Penn Nation!
