Depending on who you ask, the beef between these two MMA
megaliths stems from different causes, but Ortiz has made it clear (here
), this fight became personal for him on January 23, 1998, when the two met in a collegiate wrestling match in Sonnen’s home state of Oregon.
On that day, “The American Gangster” got the best of “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy,” pinning him with a headlock in a mere 44 seconds. Now, thanks to our good friends at FloWrestling.org, that footage is available to the masses.
