Despite getting called out, it looks like Tito Ortiz isn't interested in a fight with Kimbo Slice. When Tito Ortiz gets called out, it rarely takes him more than a day or two to respond. The former UFC light heavyweight champion and current Bellator fighter has been pretty vocal his whole career, after all. So when Kimbo Slice said he wanted to fight him last week on The MMA Hour, I expected a "bring it" type of response. Surprisingly, that's not what Oritz had to say at all. In an interwiew wit read news >>

It's been a long time since Kimbo Slice, aka Kevin Ferguson, last entered a mixed martial arts cage. The street fighting legend, who rose to national prominence with a string of internet brawl videos in the early aughts then parlayed his fame into an absurdly lucrative MMA career with pit-stops in Elite XC and the UFC, inked a surprising multi-fight deal with Bellator last week, and even after five years away from the sport, Slice remains willing to take on all comers. "I don't even know who's t read news >>

Now that Quinton Jackson has abandoned ship, top Bellator light heavyweight attraction Tito Ortiz is running out of viable opponents. He already blew away Alexander Shlemenko in a (cough) "super fight" last May, and followed that up by pushing around UFC "Psycho" Stephan Bonnar. So how about a light heavyweight showdown against Muhammed Lawal? Probably not going to happen, according to the former Strikeforce 205-pound kingpin, because Ortiz is a "bitch" and knows he can't win. "King Mo" talks to read news >>

One of the joys of bumping into Muhammed Lawal at any event is that, at some point, if you have a digital recorder or at least an ability to ask questions, you can be made privy to his opinions.

Lawal scored a victory in the realm of his default discipline -- wrestling -- but afterwards weighed in on a couple of things. On read news >>

But just like his UFC 25 opponent, "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" was nowhere to be se read news >>
