Though he has struggled inside the cage throughout much of the last several years, Tito Ortiz is without question one of the most important figures in the history of mixed martial arts. Twenty years after making his debut in the sport, “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” is finally hanging up his fingerless gloves for good and he couldn’t have scripted a better ending for his Hall of Fame career.
In the main event of Bellator 170 inside the Fabulous Forum in Inglewood, California, Ortiz dominated hated rival Chael Sonnen before forcing him to tapout to a rear-naked choke in the opening round. Ortiz landed a pair of punches to Sonnen’s face just moments into their grudge match and quickly took the former Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight title challenger to the mat. After Ortiz escaped a relatively threatening guillotine choke, Ortiz took over and never looked back.
The former UFC light heavyweight champion slithered into full mount and when “The American Gangster” rolled over in an attempt to escape the fast-approaching ground-and-pound, Ortiz seized his back and suck in the choke. Sonnen tried his best to fend it off but even though Ortiz was at an odd angle for the submission, the Californian squeezed until Sonnen tapped. Referee John McCarthy intervened but Ortiz refused to let go for a few seconds before finally doing so. The end officially came at the 2:03 mark of the first.
After to bout, Ortiz declared his retirement from the sport he carried on his shoulders in the early days of the Zuffa-era UFC and singlehandedly kept the sport alive before his contemporaries carried the torch into the sport it is today. #ufc #mma #acb #rizingfightingfederation #fighter #fightnight #bellator #boxing #box #muaythai #fighter #fight

A note to myself as I decompressed and reflected on today, seeing the solidarity all over the world! Really, we there shouldn't be a reason for gatherings such as this being we are so progressive. Really? The issues we marched for have been issues for decades, even centuries. That makes me sad but today, in this moment I was heard. WE were heard. Again! For those before us who marched for the same reasons. For those who are too young to know these are issues. In the hope we will someday soon be heard. In the hope this is the last march for these reasons. For this we united. We stand up. We use our voice and freedom to be heard.

Dude this fight. 😮 #fight
I believe in strong women. I believe in the woman who is able to stand up for herself. I believe in the woman who doesn't need to hide behind her husband's back. I believe that if you have problems, as a woman you deal with them, you don't play victim, you don't point fingers. You stand and you fight. You face the world with a head held high and you carry the universe in your heart. ❤⚌❤
