Video: Tito Ortiz bashes Chael Sonnen with juiced turkey jokes


Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) standouts Tito Ortiz and Chael Sonnen will finally lock horns at Bellator 170 on Jan. 21 from Los Angeles, California. It will be a clash of two of the best trashtalkers in mixed martial arts (MMA) history and a true high point for Bellator MMA.

But before the two light heavyweights try to put their money where their mouths are, Ortiz dished out a little extra shade from his home yesterday (Thurs., Nov. 24, 2016) during his Thanksgiving Day preparations. "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" posted the following video via Instagram:

"I couldn't stop thinking about what Chael does to himself," said Ortiz. "Probably not butter. Stuff that he says he gets from a doctor."

Remember, Sonnen recently served a two-year suspension after popping for various PEDs under the watch of the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC). Bellator 170 will be his first fight in well over three years.

"He is kind of like a turkey," added Ortiz. "But don't you know, juice is bad for you."
