Stephan Bonnar has come out of retirement and signed with Bellator MMA. Bonnar has not fought since October 2012 when he fought on short notice and loss via TKO to Anderson Silva.
Bonnar called out Tito Ortiz in the company press release:
“I want everyone to know I’m coming out of retirement because it’s time to free the MMA world of the virus that’s known as Tito Ortiz,” Bonnar said. “We’ve been suffering through his boring fights for too many years, and it’s about time that someone beats it out of him once and for all.”
We reported exclusively that Bonnar had done some training at the WWE Performance Center in hopes of getting signed to a deal with them but his age worked against him.
