One is fighting for the title, while the other is competing for the next crack at said title. And both Light Heavyweight veterans, Tito Ortiz and Phil Davis, will be in action this upcoming Saturday (Sept. 19, 2015) at Bellator 142: "Dynamite 1" at SAP Center in San Jose, California.

Bellator MMA continues to rev up the hype engine for its first-ever hybrid mixed martial arts (MMA) / kickboxing event, releasing two new videos that put the spotlight on two former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) stars.

The self-proclaimed "People's Champion," Ortiz, stars in this first clip from Bellator's popular "In Focus" series, which takes a look at a fighter's life inside and outside the cage. Ortiz will challenge Liam McGeary for the Light Heavyweight title at in the main event of "Dynamite 1."

In addition, a brand new series called "Rolling With Jimmy" was released to promote the event and the stars of the show, with veteran fight analyst Jimmy Smith playing with double entendre, rolling with Davis in his pimped out ride and then rolling with him on the mat.

Davis draws Emanuel Newton in the opening bracket of the four-man, one-night 205-pound tournament at "Dynamite 1."
