Former champion Tito Ortiz will return to the Octagon in search of his first win since 2006 when he’s expected to face Ryan Bader in a featured light heavyweight matchup at UFC 132 on July 2 in Las Vegas, according to MMAWeekly.
Ortiz (15-8-1) has not won since stopping former rival Ken Shamrock in 2006 and will likely be fighting for his UFC career against the talented Bader after struggling with injuries of late and falling to Matt Hamill in October for his third-straight loss.
Bader will be looking to get back into the win column after a loss to the newly crowned UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones at UFC 126 in February. Prior to his loss to Jones, Bader was undefeated with five wins in his UFC career.
