It was just announced on the Bellator MMA event on Spike TV that Quinton “Rampage” Jackson would not be fighting Roy Jones Jr. in a boxing match on pay-per-view at the end of the year as rumored. Instead, it will be Rampage in his home, the cage, fighting former friend and training partner, and the newest surprise addition to the Bellator MMA roster, Tito Ortiz.
Ortiz, who was retired, has signed a deal to fight for Bellator MMA, his first MMA home outside of the UFC in his career. While unconfirmed, it is possible Ortiz signed a joint deal with TNA iMPACT! Wrestling, as the MMA star has worked for the organization in the past with King Mo and Rampage Jackson. This is likely another “package deal” that will include Tito Ortiz in TNA as well.
Could Ortiz be the #August1Warning mystery-man? It sure looks that way but tune in to find out on Thursday’s edition of TNA iMPACT! Wrestling on Spike TV.
