Every note from the Tito Ortiz vs. Rampage Jackson press conference as told by Twitter

So the Bellator conference call for Tito Ortiz vs. Rampage Jackson just wrapped up, and despite the head of PR for Bellator telling me that he would invite me to every press event in California, I didn’t get the invite. Surprising? Egh, not really.

Either way, the Bellator conference call was streamed live, and we decided to cover this entire event as told by everyone who also listened to the same conference call on Twitter. Chances are we probably used your tweets as well. Check it out.
