Chael Sonnen vs. Tito Ortiz Announced For Bellator 170 (Jan. 21)

Chael Sonnen and Tito Ortiz will get what they want, and they’ll do it to kickoff 2017.

Bellator announced on “SportsCenter” Tuesday night that the two will headline Bellator 170 from The Forum in Los Angeles. The main card airs live on Spike.

Sonnen, a former UFC title contender in both the middleweight and light heavyweight division, signed with Bellator earlier this year after he was released from the UFC.

Ortiz has picked up a handful of wins since returning with Bellator, including a victory over then-middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko.
