Tito Ortiz to fight Alexander Shlemenko at Bellator 120 on May 16th


Tito Ortiz makes his return to mixed martial arts at Bellator 120: Alvarez vs Chandler III on May 17th against Alexander Shlemenko (Александр Шлеменко). This is Ortiz's first fight since July 2012 in his last bout in the UFC against Forrest Griffin. Shlemenko is a 4-time defending middleweight champion in Bellator, and has amassed a very impressive 50-7 record over his decade-long MMA career. The catalyst of this bout was Shlemenko calling out Ortiz on YouTube:

The Bellator 120 card is headlined by Eddie Alvarez putting his lightweight belt on the line against Michael Chandler in a trilogy between the two world-class 155ers. The card also includes Quinton "Rampage" Jackson taking on Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal.

Bellator 120 takes place on May 17th at the Landers Center in Southaven, Mississippi.
