Tito Ortiz

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz didn’t have the same luck this time with his visit to the courthouse. Ortiz, who received custody of his children in a battle with Jenna Jameson, was given probation and fined for a January DUI.

Ortiz crashed his car into the freeway after attending a party. According to TMZ, the current Bellator fighter was fined an undisclosed amount and put on 36 months probation.

He will return to action next month at Bellator 120 against middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko in a non-title bout. Ortiz is returning after years away and another neck surgery.

Jon Jones

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones fired off two more parting shots to conclude his UFC 172 run, taking aim at Chuck Liddell and Phil Davis.

You might remember that last week, both Liddell and Davis came after “Bones,” insisting that he wasn’t the champion he makes himself out to be.

Liddell believed that Glover Teixeira would defeat Jones, and even stated that he could knock him out if they fought while both were in their primes.

Here’s what Jones posted on Instagram in regards to Liddell, a former UFC champion and Hall of Fame fighter:

And Davis, he challenged Jones and claimed to be coming after him once he finished off Anthony Johnson. However, Davis fell to Johnson and dropped down the list of contenders.

Jon Jones

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones puts on a strong front when it comes to the constant booing he normally receives for fights.

For whatever reason it may be, Jones is consistently targeted as the “heel” in his fights from the time he beat Mauricio “Shogun” Rua until recently at UFC 172.

Of course, it helped that “Bones” performed the Ray Lewis pre-game entrance dance and that his brother formerly played for the Baltimore Ravens. But still, the arena – at least on this night – was pro-Jones.

And he enjoyed it.

“It was just great to have the crowd on my side again,” Jones said during the post-fight press conference. “It has been a long time since I’ve had cheers. It was just great. I was living it up. I figured Ray Lewis would be there, a lot of Ravens would be there, so I was just playing it up and practiced that dance all day; and aced it, I hear.

“The people of Baltimore, they still love Arthur, they still respect him a lot. Arthur gets a great reception here. It’s great to see that the love is still there. And obviously it trickled into my world, too. I got a lot of respect, and a lot of cheers, which made me feel amazing. I really do appreciate it. I mean the boos I’ve learned to live with, but it’s so rewarding to get some love and respect for once.”

If the rumors of Jones-Alexander Gustafsson II going down in Sweden come true, you can bet Jones won’t have a single voice cheering him on other than his team or family in attendance.

ufc 172

Bethe Correia made an impact at UFC 172 when she topped Jessamyn Duke.

However, it was her move after the bout that made the biggest headlines, as the Brazilian signaled one down, three to go with her fingers. That was in reference to the “Four Horsewomen,” a group of female fighters led by UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

The quartet also consists of Duke, The Ultimate Fighter alum Shayna Baszler and recently-turned-pro Marina Shafir.

“They were tweeting me and provoking me all the time,” said Correia, in a post-fight interview with MMAjunkie.com. “One of them is called a weapon in Brazil, and I just want to say I’m bulletproof.”

Duke’s nickname, “The Gun,” was what Correia was referring to. She is now a perfect 8-0 in her career with two wins inside the Octagon over Duke and veteran Julie Kedzie.
