Beef Alert: Tito Ortiz questions Chael Sonnen credentials, Sonnen doesn’t like Ortiz’s tone

Are we on the verge of a Chael Sonnen versus Tito Ortiz mega super ultra-fight? Close your eyes and say “mmm” to all the potential prefight banter between Ortiz and Sonnen. Despite both being in the mixed martial arts game for over 15 years apiece, the paths of Ortiz and Sonnen have rarely if ever crossed. In 2015 maybe it’s time for their streams to cross (…..?).

Living a retired from MMA life full of analyst appearances, t-shirt vending, and roast mastering, Sonnen may have been blindsided by Ortiz’s random twitter crack back. Not one to back down from a random twitter promo opportunity, Ortiz composed a bold thesis statement that since Sonnen was never “technically” a “UFC champion” that it shouldn’t be listed on his resume. Maybe Ortiz was in a self-induced media coma during the entire build-up/hype train for Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen II? Jones vs. Sonnen I?

A Sonnen vs. Ortiz bout could be the biggest on the books for not one but two fight promotions. Let the foot race between Bellator’s Scott Coker and Metamoris’ grab bag of Gracie brothers begin! Or let the Paper-rock-scissors game begin? Or let the Go Fish round begin? Or let the Super Smash Bros. best of seven series begin? Someone, somewhere just make Ortiz-Sonnen happen for the MMA’s world entertainment.
