Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion and UFC Hall-of-Famer Tito Ortiz made his debut under the TNA Impact Wrestling banner last night (Aug. 1, 2013) in Wichita Falls, Texas.
And the crowd goes mild!
Ortiz, who recently joined the Viacom family to compete for Bellator MMA, was on screen to stare down fellow UFC import and part-time pro wrestler Quinton Jackson, who fights "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" on pay-per-view (PPV) this November.
See all the gory details on that fight here.
Since Viacom owns Spike TV, home to both Bellator and TNA, you can expect to see its latest mixed martial arts (MMA) acquisitions blurring the lines between the two, all in the name of hype. That includes Muhammed Lawal, who also signed up for double-duty earlier this year and will reportedly tag-team with "Rampage" inside the ring.
Well, now you've seen the video. Doing anything for ya?
