The insults fly tomorrow night on HDNet, Friday, August 6 at 9:00 p.m. ET

WHAT: On this week's “Inside MMA,” Tito Ortiz reminds fans why he's the original bad boy of MMA with his comments about his future opponent Matt “The Hammer” Hamill. In a bizarre statement, Ortiz said that Hamill has no equilibrium because, “he's deaf so he has a soft head and you hit him with more and more shots.” Hamill, who is deaf, trained under Ortiz on Season 3 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” and will face him at UFC 121 in October. Ortiz tells Kenny Rice and Bas Rutten that Hamill has been, “…babied his whole life coming from being deaf. He's gonna be babied after, when I knock him out and look for a little snuggle.” Also on the program, in an exclusive interview with Ron Kruck, Chael Sonnen says that Anderson Silva is “not the first cheater I've dealt with.” Sonnen, who has had a lot to say about this upcoming bout in the last few weeks, told Kruck that Silva is, “not the first guy who discovered he can soak himself in baby oil before he walks to the ring.” This week's panel also features outspoken Bellator title challenger Joe Warren facing his more soft-spoken opponent, Featherweight champion Joe Soto. Warren may win the panel's “war of words” but, Soto calmly tells Kenny and Bas, “he can't knock me out.”
