Tito Ortiz registered a win over Alexander Shlemenko in his Bellator MMA debut on Saturday night. Ortiz defeated Shlemenko with a first-round arm triangle choke submission, and very few were surprised. Shlemenko is a small middleweight who had to move up to fight Ortiz and the odds were stacked against him.
In fact, the size difference between the two fighters was so evident that Jenna Jameson felt it constituted cheating.
“Sometimes it’s easiest to win when you’re twice the size…” Jameson wrote in a tweet that was later deleted but captured by MMA Fighting. “#maybefightrampage #actuallyteachinghissonscheatingisok.”
As many of you know, saying that Jameson’s opinion of Ortiz is biased would be an understatement. The two have a long history that is littered with drug abuse accusations, domestic assault and nasty custody battles.
Jackson and Ortiz were supposed to fight last year, but Ortiz had to pull out with a neck injury. No alternate date for the fight was ever scheduled.
