I'LL GIVE HIM CREDIT FOR THAT.

HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTSCAN'T BE DENIED.

BUT HIS CHARACTER CAN.

TITO WAS HEADLININGALL THE PAY-PER-VIEWS.

THE UFC WAS LOSINGA LOT OF MONEY.

THEY WERE A SINKING SHIPBECAUSE OF HIS BORING ASS.

I HAD TO STEP UP AND SHOW HIMHOW REAL MEN FIGHT.

- I SEE BONNAR'S CAREERAS A JOURNEYMAN.

HE'S A GUY THAT WENT IN THEREAND PUT A GOOD FIGHT,

BUT ALWAYS GOT HIS ASS WHUPPED.

NEVER A CHAMPION.

NEVER BEAT ANYBODYIN THE TOP FIVE.

HE ALWAYS TOOKA GREAT ASS-WHUPPING.

- TITO, IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYONECOMES AFTER YOU

I CAN'T WAIT TO EAT HIS ELBOWSAND PUNCHES

AND BE COVERED IN BLOOD

SO I CAN LAUGH AT HIM,

SPIT IN HIS FACE,AND KICK HIS ASS.

- IN THE CAGE, YOU TALKED ABOUTBEING UNDERNEATH THE ELBOWS,

HAVING TITO ON TOP OF YOU.

YOU SAID, "I'M GONNA GET BLOODALL OVER ME,

"I'M GONNA STAND UP,AND I'M GONNA KNOCK HIM OUT."

YOU LOOK FORWARDTO THE KIND OF FIGHT

MOST PEOPLE DON'T WANT,

THAT MOST PEOPLE TRY TO AVOID.

- IT'S JUST THE WAY HE RUNSAROUND AND DIGS GRAVES

AND ALL THAT--I THINKIT'S DISRESPECTFUL.

AND HE GOT LUCKY--NOT IN THE FIGHT.

HE GOT LUCKY THAT HE GOT OUTOF THE RAMPAGE FIGHT.

RAMPAGE USED TO WHUP HIS ASSIN THE GYM.

narrator: IN BONNAR'S CORNERFIGHT NIGHT

WILL BE TWO COACHES WHO KNOWTITO INSIDE AND OUT:

HIS FORMER TRAINING PARTNERJUSTIN MCCULLY

AND THE RENOWNED STRIKING COACHNICK BLOMGREN

WHO HELPED GUIDE CHUCK LIDDELLTO TWO DOMINANT WINS OVER TITO.

AND KNOWS HIS WEAKNESSES.

- HE DON'T LIKE TO STAND UP,SO MAKE HIM STAND UP.

GOOD.

THERE YOU GO!

CENTER.

GOOD.

RIGHT THERE.

THERE YOU GO.

PUSH HIM OFF YOU.

- WHOO!

- YOU WANT TO BULLY HIM AROUNDA LITTLE BIT.

BOOM, YOU CAN THROW A JABRIGHT BACK AT HIM

JUST TO GET HIM--GET HIM OFF HERE, RIGHT,

SO WHETHER IT'S A JAB--BOOM--UP THAT LANE,

WHETHER IT'S AN EXTRA HAND,BOOM, WHATEVER IT IS.

THAT WAY WE JUST GAIN A LITTLEBIT OF RESPECT IN THIS POCKET.

HE CAN'T CLOSE DOWN ON USSO FAST AND SO HARD.

- HE'S NOT GONNA STAY ENGAGEDWITH YOU.

HE THINKS HE WANTS TO STAND UP

AND HE WORKS ON HIS STAND UP,

BUT AS SOON AS HE GETS TOUCHED,HE GOES--

HE GOES BACK TO WHAT TITO DOES.

HE WANTS TO WRESTLE.

WHAT I KNOW ABOUT TITO ORTIZ IS,

HE DON'T LIKE TO BE PUNCHED.

HE PULLS AWAY FROM THE DANGER.

HE DOESN'T GO TO THE DANGER.

- WE'RE LOCKED IN A CAGETOGETHER WITH ALMOST NO RULES,

SO IT'S GOOD TO HAVE PEOPLEIN MY CORNER

THAT UNDERSTANDTITO'S WEAKNESSES.

- YOU'RE ALREADY ESTABLISHED

AS ONE OF THE BIGGEST NAMESIN MMA.

WHAT ARE YOU FIGHTING FOR NOW?

- I WANT ANOTHER WORLD TITLEON MY WAIST.

I HAVE A DESIRE.

I WANT TO FULFILL WHAT I BELIEVEI CAN DO.

I'M SO DAMN HUNGRY TO FINISHMY MMA CAREER ON A HIGH NOTE.

I HAD SUCH A BAD TASTEIN MY MOUTH WHEN I RETIRED.

I HAD TO STEP AWAYAND RECOLLECT MYSELF,

RECOLLECT MY THOUGHTS,GET MY LIFE STRAIGHT,

GET MY FAMILY STRAIGHT,AND I DID THAT.

NOW I'M IN A GREAT MENTAL SPACE.

I THINK THIS FIGHTIS GONNA SHOW THAT.

- YOUR LEGACY WAS ESTABLISHED.

EVERYBODY KNEW STEPHAN BONNAR.

THEY KNEW HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS.

WHAT ARE YOU FIGHTING FORIN THIS FIGHT?

- I WAS BLESSED TO RECEIVEA BIG FIGHT LIKE THIS

TO COME BACK TO.

AND I'M GONNA PUT ON A SHOW.

IT'S NEARLY TEN YEARS

SINCE THAT FIGHT WITH FORRESTTHAT CHANGED THE SPORT,

AND I'VE BEEN TRYING TO TOPTHAT FIGHT FOR A LONG TIME.

- FOR STEPHAN BONNAR, HE'SDEFINITELY LOOKING AT THIS FIGHT

FOR LEGEND STATUS.

I MEAN, THIS WILL DEFINITELY PUTA CAP ON HIS LEGACY.

- TAP!

- YOU KNOW, STEPHAN'S MOMENTRIGHT NOW IS LOST.

THAT WAS THE LOSSTO FORREST GRIFFIN.

I THINK HE WANTSTO BE REMEMBERED

FOR A GREAT PERFORMANCEAND A WIN,

NOT A GREAT PERFORMANCEAND A LOSS.

- I'M GONNA MAKE ITA CRAZY FIGHT.

THAT'S ALL I CARE ABOUT DOING.

I'M GONNA ENTERTAIN THE FANS.

I'M GONNA GIVE THEM A TREAT.

- I FIGHT BEST WITH EMOTIONSBEHIND ME.

I FIGHT BEST WHEN MY BACK'SPRESSED AGAINST THE WALL,

WHEN I HAVE TO PROVE SOMETHING.

- CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG:

YOU WANT THE BEST TITO.

YOU WANT THE ANGRIEST TITO.

YOU WANTTHE MOST AGGRESSIVE TITO.

- YEAH, THERE'S GONNA BENO EXCUSES.

I'M IN THERE TO JUST BE LOCKEDIN A CAGE WITH HIM

AND ENJOY EVERY SECOND OF IT

AND FIGHT HIM TO THE DEATH.

- I'M GONNA TORTURE HIMFOR 15 MINUTES.

I WANT TO MAKEHIS FACE UNRECOGNIZABLE.

THE LAST TIME I DID THATWAS AGAINST KEN SHAMROCK.

IT LOOKED LIKE SOMEONE GOTA PURPLE PAINTBRUSH

AND PAINTED HIS FACE.

THERE'D JUST BE BLOODEVERYWHERE.

- I LIKE TITO ORTIZIN THE FIGHT.

I THINK HE'S PROVEN THAT,HEY, IF HE'S HEALTHY,

HE'S STILL A FACTOR.

- YOU CAN MAKE A CASE FOR BONNARSLINGING BOMBS

AND CATCHING TITOAND MAKING IT ROUGH.

- I THINK TITO ORTIZ IS GONNA GOIN THE CAGE

AND HE'S GONNA TAKESTEPHAN BONNAR DOWN,

GONNA PUT HIM ON HIS BACK,AND THEN HE'S GONNA TKO HIM

WITH ELBOWS AND PUNCHESON THE GROUND.

- FOR TITO TO WIN THIS FIGHT,

HE NEEDS TO GO TO CLASSICGROUND AND POUND TITO-STYLE

AND JUST GROUND AND POUND HIMWITH ELBOWS,

AND I THINK THAT'S THE WAYIT'LL GO.

[crowd chanting]TITO! TITO!

- NOVEMBER 15TH,TWO LEGACIES ON THE LINE.

TWO OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN MMA.

I GOT TO SAY, I'M PRIVILEGEDTO CALL THIS FIGHT.

GOOD LUCKTO BOTH OF YOU GENTLEMEN.
