On Sunday, BJ Penn returned to the cage for the first time since 2014, and this Saturday, Chael Sonnen will compete for the first time since 2013.
“The American Gangster” will take on former UFC light-heavyweight champ Tito Ortiz, in the main event of Bellator 170. Sonnen will be looking to return to the win column, as in his last bout, he was quickly stopped by Rashad Evans.
Recently Bellator posted the “In Focus” video below, which features Sonnen discussing his long held wish to face Ortiz. It also shows an emotional Sonnen reflecting on the promise he made his late father, that he would defeat Ortiz and win a world championship.
It’s definitely worth a watch.
