Tonight from Inglewood, California will hold one of their biggest cards to date at the Great Wester Forum.
The main event sees two of the biggest names in the history of the sport do battle after countless weeks of back-and-forth trash talk. Former UFC champion Tito Ortiz will come out of his short-lived retirement to take on “The Bad Guy” Chael Sonnen. This is Sonnen’s first fight since November of 2013 and, according to Tito, this will legitimately be his retirement fight.
