Tito Ortiz Talks About Stephan Bonnar’s Past Issues With Seroids, TNA & More

The following are highlights of a new Submission Radio interview with Tito Ortiz:

On his time with TNA Wrestling:

“My home at TNA was great. They treated me really well. Dixie Carter was really, really good to me. During the time I was there I got a chance to meet Hulk Hogan. I was really happy with that, but I mean either WWE either TNA, but I mean right now my main career is fighting. I mean I love to fight and that’s what I wanna do. That’s with Bellator.”

On his thoughts on the brawl at Bellator 123:

“I just couldn’t handle myself. I think when he was just saying the personal stuff about my family and then he made an acknowledgment of the gimp, I just said you can’t talk about my family, you can’t talk about my fans. I just couldn’t hold myself. “I felt like a bull just seeing red and I couldn’t even hold, I couldn’t even get my sentence out completely and I just had to put my hands on him. I should have punched him but I know I would have been paying a big fine for that so I didn’t do that. So I had to get my hands on him one way of another and I did get an opportunity to spit on him so I guess that helps out a little bit better.”

On his thoughts on fighting Stephan Bonnar:

“You know, talk about disliking a person my whole career. That’s 17 years. I don’t think I’ve ever hated anybody as much as I hate this person. For a person to talk about my family and to talk about my fans the way he did, I just find it very disrespectful, very childish and fake. “He really ticked me off a lot. I mean, he got very personal Like I said, and I’m gonna take it out on him on November 15th. I can’t wait.”

On his thoughts Stephan Bonnar’s past issues with steroids:

“The fact of him getting burned for steroids not once but twice. I mean the guy is a phoney, the guy is a fake, the guy is, you know he’s just a cheater, and my whole career I stuck to the game plan of training hard and getting the best out of it. “How someone could be so disrespectful and have such a s–tty career and be a s–tty person.”

You can listen to audio of the complete interview at the top of the page.

Don’t forget, Ortiz fights Bonnar in the main event of Bellator 131, which takes place on Saturday, November 15th and airs live on Spike TV.
