Tito Responds To Kimbo Callout: ‘NO’


Since Kimbo Slice signed with Bellator MMA earlier this year there has been much talk as to who he will face upon making his debut.

Slice stated that he was interested in a bout against Tito Ortiz, who he apparently had a problem with in the past.

Ortiz responded to Slice’s callout saying:

“I’m a world champion. Fighting someone like Kimbo is a step down. I don’t wanna fight a street fighter.”

“I’ll be fighting in May, possibly in June. I have to wait for the fight between Emanuel Newton and McGeary and I hope to fight the winner.”

“I signed for four fights in my contract. In the first bout, I was the underdog and I stopped the middleweight champ Shlemenko in 2:27 minutes. Bonnar comes and talk a lot of crap about me, so I had to fight him. I wanna fight for the world title, but I had to shut him up. Now my focus is to fight for the title.”
