Tito Ortiz

Tito Ortiz stunned Chael Sonnen Saturday night, choking out the former UFC title contender in the main event of Bellator 170.

Ortiz locked up a choke from the mount early in the first round. The former UFC champion had said before that this would be his final fight.

Sonnen was making his Bellator debut after serving a lengthy suspension for taking banned substances while with the UFC.

Paul Daley stole the show, as “Semtex” connected with a violent flying knee on Brennan Ward in the co-main event. Daley’s shot landed at the 2:27 mark, and Ward was stretched out of the cage.

Officials did confirm that Ward was responsive and moving before being transported to a local hospital.

Hisaki Kato earned a decision over Ralek Gracie, Emmanuel Sanchez did the same vs. Georgi Karakhanyan and Derek Campos kicked off the main card with a decision over Derek Anderson.

UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt didn’t hold back anything during a recent appearance on “UFC Tonight.”

Garbrandt talked about the opportunity to coach on The Ultimate Fighter 25, opposing coach – and future opponent – TJ Dillashaw and Dominick Cruz.

Cody Garbrandt on being a coach for THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER: “I’m excited and honored to come in here and see how I am as a coach and change these guys’ lives.”

Cody Garbrandt on what will be different with this season: “The storylines and the excitement between me and TJ. These guys have been here before and are battling back. The fighters want to prove they belong back on the big show.”

Cody Garbrandt on fighting former teammate TJ Dillashaw instead of a rematch with Dominick Cruz: “I have respect for Dominick, but I whooped on you, I clowned you. There’s a new hit list. TJ is next, then Jose Aldo and then Conor McGregor. I know what it’s going to be like with TJ because we’ve trained together.”

Cody Garbrandt on if he’s worried about Dillashaw: “The way he fights is the same way he spars in training. He’s going to go out there and try kill you. I was whopping on him when he was there. It’ll be great to set tell the truth and tell the story of how it really went down in training.”
