On Saturday, Jan. 21, Bellator MMA will host its 170th event from The Forum in Inglewood, Calif.
In the night’s main event, former UFC light heavyweight champion and Bellator MMA title challenger Tito Ortiz closes the book on his storied career as he takes on fellow UFC veteran Chael Sonnen. The 41-year-old Ortiz saw a career resurgence under the Bellator banner, winning his first two bouts with the promotion before coming up short in his quest for gold. Sonnen, meanwhile, will make his promotional debut after serving a lengthy suspension for performance-enhancing drug use. The 39-year-old last competed in 2013, where he was stopped by Rashad Evans at UFC 167.
The rest of the card is full of notable names, including Paul Daley, Brennan Ward, Ralek Gracie, Hisaki Kato and Georgi Karakhanyan.
The action kicks off Saturday with a live preliminary card stream above at 6:30 p.m. ET. The night’s main card will air on Spike TV beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
