Bellator officials announced that former UFC champions Tito Ortiz and Rampage Jackson have agreed to fight at Bellator 97 slated for November 2, 2013 in Long Beach, California.
The organization plans to air this via pay-per-view.
This news comes as just days ago UFC President Dana White addressed the media about “not giving a sh*t!” whether Ortiz makes a comeback or not when he was asked from the media about the “Huntington Beach Bad Boy”.
It’s also a surprise that two friends are eager to make a mark by fighting each other.
Ortiz has gone 1-7-1 in his last nine-fights. His last victory was over Ryan Bader at UFC 132.
Jackson was given the slips after his three-fight losing streak in the UFC. Needless to say, these two veterans will come guns blazing in trying to re-establish a name for themselves.

UFC reality show veterans Patrick Côté and Kyle Noke named coaches of Canada versus Australia series
The Ultimate Fighting Championship confirmed today the next international installment of its famed reality show will feature two leading Commonwealth mixed martial arts countries, as Canada meets Australia in The Ultimate Fighter Nations. Series veterans Patrick Côté (20-8) and Kyle Noke (20-6-1) were officially named coaches of the 22nd edition of the show, which will feature welterweight (170lbs) prospects.
A nine-year veteran of the UFC, Côté first appeared on the reality series in 2006 when he joined a cast of UFC alumni in The Ultimate Fighter: The Comeback. Originally from Rimouski, Quebec, the bilingual fighter was the first Canadian to reach the series final, and remains only one of two Canadian fighters’ to have done so. Cote then went on a five-fight win streak in the UFC, and earned a shot at Anderson Silva’s UFC middleweight title.
Noke, a native of Dubbo, New South Wales, joined the reality series ranks when he fought his way onto season 11, The Ultimate Fighter: Team Liddell vs. Team Ortiz. He was Hall of Famer Liddell’s No.1 pick, and reached the quarterfinals. He has since gone 4-2 in the UFC, including an impressive Submission of the Night win over Chris Camozzi and a devastating KO last time out over Charlie Brenneman.
Tryouts for The Ultimate Fighter Nations: Canada vs. Australia will begin in September. Both countries will host casting opportunities, the first in Sydney and the second in Toronto. Further details and registration forms will be available as July 1st at http://www.ufc.com/TUFNations.
The Ultimate Fighter Nations is expected to debut in early 2014. It will air nationally in Canada on Rogers Sportsnet and TVA Sports and on FX Networks in Australia. A complete broadcast schedule will be announced at a later date.
The Ultimate Fighter, which debuted in 2005, has launched the careers of more than 100 UFC fighters and has produced past champions such as Forrest Griffin, Rashad Evans, Michael Bisping and Matt Serra. This will be Australia’s second participation in the series, having taken part in the second international edition battling the U.K. in The Ultimate Fighter The Smashes: U.K. vs. Australia. Welterweights were most recently featured on The Ultimate Fighter 16 and The Ultimate Brasil 2, when Colton Smith and Leonardo Santos emerged as season winners.
UFC 161. The event will take place on June 15, 2013, at the MTS Centre, a 15,000-seat venue that is home to the National Hockey League’s Winnipeg Jets. “Canadians love their MMA and we love bringing it to them,” said UFC President Dana White. “There are many Canadian cities on our radar and we hope to visit as many as possible. We’re excited to make Winnipeg happen and can’t wait to bring a stacked card to the MTS Centre.”
The Winnipeg event is part of the UFC’s ongoing Canadian commitment, which will see three global events taking place in Canada each year between 2012-2014. The UFC visited Montreal on March 16 with UFC 158: ST.PIERRE vs. DIAZ while it will also visit Toronto this coming September. Winnipeg now becomes the fifth Canadian city to host a UFC event as the organization has also hosted events in Calgary and Vancouver.”We’re proud to add Winnipeg to our list of Canadian UFC cities,” said Tom Wright, UFC Director of Operations for Canada, Australia and New Zealand. “The city has an impressive résumé in terms of teams including the Jets, Bombers and Moose as well as major events such as the Grey Cup and Pan Am Games. We can’t wait for Winnipeg to experience the UFC.”
The UFC has hosted 12 Canadian events with each experiencing tremendous success. Collectively, the events have seen more than 200,000 fans in attendance and millions worldwide watching on Pay-Per-View. In addition, the four host cities to date – Calgary, Montreal, Vancouver and Toronto – have had a cumulative gross gate of almost $50M and millions more in direct economic impact.

He picked out a Black Lamborghini Superleggera and took it on a leisurely drive around the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This was followed by a ride along with Pro Race Car drifter, Rudy Ibanez. Check out the awesome time he had out there!
WCP MMA Inc. announced Tuesday on Fight Network that its newly minted Substance Cage Combat (SCC) promotion will be holding its inaugural mixed martial arts event at the George Bell Centre in Toronto on June 29.
Substance Cage Combat 1.0 will feature several of the province’s top stars, including Adrian Wooley, Randy Turner, Alex Ricci, and Elias Theodoreau, who will help end the nearly seven-month drought Ontario MMA fans have gone through since the final Score Fighting Series card in November.
According to SCC president Neil Forester, a longtime Toronto concert and event promoter and co-owner of Grant’s MMA Gym, the promotion’s primary focus is to help fighters in Ontario and Canada by providing them with another stage to perform on.
“I recognized a major void in Ontario of opportunities for our local pool of talented fighters to fight at home. Score Fighting Series was the last legitimate local organization helping to promote and develop Ontario MMA fighters, and I just felt like the sport needed someone to come in and fill that void,” Forester explained Tuesday. “This isn’t about making money for our group; it’s about helping to further develop the sport in Ontario and providing a stage for our local fighters to gain fight experience and get more exposure.”
