Rampage Jackson and Tito Ortiz recently spoke about their upcoming fight. Here is what they had to say… Rampage on Signing With Bellator: “This is a good time right now,” Jackson said. “We just signed with Bellator, and I want to help put Bellator on the map. Why not do it with a legend with someone like Tito?” Tito on Their Relationship: “I think it’s business,” Ortiz said. “It’s strictly business. … For the first eight years of our competition, we sparred against each other almost everyday. We wrestled against each other. We did jiu-jitsu. We did the things to make each other better. Over the last five years after, we bettered ourselves by fighting other fighters. … That’s what makes this match so intriguing for the fighters to watch. You want to see two of the best fighters compete against each other? I’m healthier. My mind’s set on a great positive right now, he’s in a great place, and I think fans want to see a great fight, which they’ll see on Nov. 2.”
