Chael Sonnen Tito Ortiz

Chael Sonnen makes fun of Tito Ortiz for calling out Mike Tyson

If there’s one fighter that Chael Sonnen loves to make fun of, it is former rival Tito Ortiz. While Ortiz defeated Sonnen in the cage, Sonnen has continuously found a way to get the last laugh by picking on Ortiz. Earlier today, Sonnen continued his roast of Ortiz by posting a video on his YouTube channel, which ripped apart Ortiz for an Instagram post calling out Mike Tyson.

Ortiz posted a side-by-side photo of Tyson and himself and wrote, “@MikeTyson – Legend Vs Legend on PPV! When are we doing it?”

From there, Sonnen opened the flood gates by laying into Ortiz.

“Anybody of any age, but particularly a grown-a** 44-year-old man that goes on to Instagram shirtless while flexing his abs is a little bit of a dork,” Sonnen said in his video.

Calling Ortiz a dork was just the start of the barrage, as Sonnen then questioned which legend Ortiz wanted Tyson to fight.

“So it’s like Tito, who are you bringing,” Sonnen questioned. “Are you bringing Tank Abbott along? Are you bringing Randy Couture? Are you bringing King Arthur? Are you bringing Batman? Like who is coming that is the other legend here?”

Sonnen also pointed out that Ortiz isn’t good at marketing as streaming platforms are now the main stream way of having fights as opposed to pay-per-view.

Meanwhile, viewership aside, Tyson does appear to be interested in doing celebrity boxing matches, which is why Ortiz made the post in the first place. However in the post, Ortiz never made it clear that he wanted box Tyson, which Sonnen cleverly noticed.

“I think that you thought that you were going to be the one guy to lure 53-year-old Mike Tyson into a sport that he’s never done before called MMA. Which was never going to happen but seems like something you would still bring to the table at some point because you’re not very smart.”
